Hi-Diddly-Dee, No Overtime For Me

So, there are new developments on the "job front."

The first one deals with rejection.

I was rejected from a job that I didn't even apply for. Yes, I have a feeling it has to do with the way I handled the interview. And no, I didn't want the stupid job. But, God Damn it, rejection hurts!

In a polite email I was told "Your skill set is not applicable for this position."

Keep in mind that this was for what amounted to a computer programming position and nowhere on my resume does it say "Computer Programming Experience."

Are they idiots? I could have told them that! What, did they see "Journalist" or "World Traveler" or "Passed Math 11" on my resume and think, "Hmmm. She would be perfect for computer programming!"?

Sigh.

Then I find out that we (us temps) are no longer eligible for overtime. This both sucks and blows. First of all, I get paid a lousy wage, so OT was the only perk to the job (aside from the 8 hour breaks). It was the only way I would be able to pay my mortgage AND have a life. Now, with no opportunity for more money, I'm barely able to make ends meet and I have no life. I went to buy my lunch yesterday ($5) and my debit card was declined. And I have a $500 overdraft!

Now comes the regret...Why, oh why, did I buy a pricey pair of new boots? Why, oh why, did I go to Ikea? Why, oh why, did I lose my last cheque? Why, oh, why did I buy that dress? (Cuz it was cute, Damn it, and on sale. That's why!)

I think I'm going to have to auction myself off on Ebay again.

Just auction your one of your kidney's. That way most of you is left still intact.

I'll pay you $5 to write "Kass Rocks" in black permanent marker on your forehead, for a day lol.

If it was permenant, it would be for more than one day, wouldn't it? In that case, I will do it for $12.50 an hour, no tax.

Kass said...

Well, I would supply you with cleaner for your head. $12.50 is a rip off for abit of forehead advertising.

Wanderlusting said...

Really? I could take a picture and submit it to Google Adsense.

Kass said...

That just would not do at all. I wouldn't be getting my moneys worth lol.

Again on eBay, Lusty?

There was a first time?

Wanderlusting said...

Well, I sold a truckload of my precious clothes on Ebay, so it's like I was auctioning off myself...if not pieces of myself. I miss those clothes.

Wanderlusting said...

Well, I'll start with the penny sales and see where it goes from there :p
