I made a real effort to look for suitable employment today. Signed up with a couple of contract agencies and have an appointment with a third tomorrow.
Looking for work? Sucks big time.
The hoops one has to jump through make me laugh and curse at the same time. I spent much of the day online, filling out apps.
Is it me? Am I really supposed to remember the date I started and ended a job and who the supervisor’s name was? Because once I leave a company, I firmly put that crap out of my mind.
“I hate this shit!” I complained to JJ on the phone.
“Think of it as a test put out there by all the people in control. It gives them a sense of importance, makes them feel valued.”
“…While it makes me feel like shit. Damn!” I could feel a headache starting behind my eyes.
“What’s AJ doing?”
Talk about a change of subject! “No idea. Talked to him briefly this morning but haven’t seen him since. I assume he’s still unpacking or maybe driving that hot new car around town.” I wasn’t about to mention the Jacuzzi we enjoyed last night.
“Tomorrow’s another day, babe. Don’t make yourself crazy.”
“Right.” I felt this unaccustomed urge to put my fist through a wall, but mostly, I just wanted him to hug me.
I really miss his hugs.
