Why so defensive?
Really? Have you forgotten this comment that you made?
Sorry, but youre sounding a tad bit out of touch with the average person seeking work in this country right now.
I'm not out of touch in the least and I'm not being defensive, either. Nor am I exaggerating. You are quite obviously the one who knows nothing about what I'm saying. I hope you enjoy mediocrity. If you had experience trying to find work in lean times you would know that I'm spot on in my observations. I'm telling you what worked for me when I went through bad times. This economy, as bad as it is, is nowhere near what I experienced in the early 1980's. It's nowhere near what I personally experienced in 1987, either. I didn't sit around feeling sorry for myself. I got out and kept at it until I found gainful employment.
3-4 part time jobs during that awful period.
Part time jobs I had during that period included, but were not limited to driving cars through an auto auction one night a week, shucking oysters at a bar on Friday and Saturday nights, waiting tables, working as a short order cook, driving a cab, moving furniture for a furniture store, doing yard work, often times for people who I'd just moved furniture for, working construction, working as a life guard, working at a car wash, working as a bar back, then later a bar tender and the list goes on and on.
What you don't know about me would fit on the point of a pin with acres of room to spare.
Once again, you open your mouth and remove all doubt.....you really should quit before you make a complete fool of yourself.
