Can you edit text? Try Scribendi in Ontario. You have to pass a rigorous qualification exam, but you can work from home. Naked. DO NOT tell them Lefty sent you... we had a falling out over the technical specifications for an American variable-geometry strategic bomber. It happens.

Or I hear, "There's jobs out there, you just have to apply". I'm not disagreeing, but in what industry do they mean there's jobs you know? Plus, there's maybe hundreds of other applicants too applying to the same job.

Applying doesn't mean you'll get the job. I've applied to hundreds of jobs by now.

"You just have to apply." Really? Oh, and then the job's mine. Idiot people.

Unless you're either some time of genius overacheiver that other applicants can't compete with or somebody who is willing to do shady **** like sabotage other people's applications or lie and cheat to make yourself look better, it seems like many jobs are simply out of reach.


Sometimes I just don't see the point in trying.

Or sometimes you get called, and sometimes you don't.

I'm so sorry Sans Nom has decided to leave, guys I agree with you all. Finding a job is certainly a lot harder than some people would want you to believe. This kind of comments can be very annoying. Sending many hugs to everyone

I definitely agree with all the points that were made in this thread. People do say thoughtless things and therein judgment if you can't get a job.

What is your age? Over about 35 .. sad to say, there is horrible age discrimination. My sister refused to listen to this and I don't think she will ever work again because she is 50 and there is no hiding that.

I have nothing to suggest for her.

If I were 50 and couldn't get a job I would just say screw it and buy a cheap RV and live on the road.



Jobs aren't worth the stress.

Not if you had a wife and kids. But my sister has a husband working so she really doesn't have to work.

If I were 55 or so and lost my job I would just wait for social security at 62.

Yeah I would. Then again, I never plan on getting married and having children so it's w/e.



My only loyalty is to myself. If my mental health was threatened, I would walk out of a marriage without a second thought. Chances are, if I was married, the cause to my struggles would be because of the marriage anyways.
