Obstacles
August 28th, 2007 by Babs

I ran into a few roadblocks with my Tinker Toys idea. First of all: Holy fuck! When did they become so expensive? The cheapest set available locally (which may make me a rack or two) is $21! @,@ Secondly, the cheapest wooden set may not have the free-spinning spools that I need to make my display carousel. *sigh* Iguess I’ll have t ofigure something out.

In other news, I’m getting fed up with feeling totally incompetent. With Library Assistant jobsnon-existent due to budget cuts, I’ve been forced to look for minimum wage work as a cashier. I applied at Toys R Us two months ago, figuring I could tap into my boys’ knowledge of video games. I have yet to receive a call for an interview, yet they still have a help wanted sign up. It’s Stop & Shop that’s really getting me down, though. I’ve applied twice, after my friend (a front end manager) promised me I’d have a job by the end of this month. There’s three days left and I still haven’t been called. And, yeah, they have help wanted signs up, too.

Glenn, in a tone that only a man who feels he’s being inconvenienced by his wife’s inability to get a job can use, announced that he has no choice but to get a second job. This is after he turned down a transfer to the cemetary department, where he’d be getting the same hourly pay PLUS tips upwards of $100 a week. Oh, and he told me he doesn’t care if I have to fill out applications online for him, he’s going to get another job. Um, yeah.
