The Joys of Unemployment

I’m coming up on week three of no job. How did it go so fast! I didn’t realize how much work cut into my napping / messing around time. To be honest, I’m being picky on what jobs I apply for.
It will be a different story if in three more weeks I still don’t have a job. Maybe I’ll work at McDonalds with the cute boy that I want to set Montana up with. (See Yenta at McDonalds!?! That’s not kosher.)
Anyway, I had an interview today with a huge hospice company and you know what, I really, really, really don’t want to do hospice anymore or social work for that matter. But I sucked it up and went in. Usually I’m great at interviewing. The problem comes down the line when I have to maintain the appearance of a dutiful employee.
This hospice company had set up an interview for me last week but that is when vertigo decided to reappear and I had to call in and cancel. So already not an auspicious start. I was interviewed by an HR screener who went down a list of stupid standard questions. You know how you can just tell when things are going south? Well this went so far south I should have ended up in Antarctica. Looks like I wore my “good” pants for nothing.
So now it occurs to me that I really should change what I do. Since lounging around is not very lucrative, I’m thinking Quality Assurance / Compliance Monitor would be a great fit. Sit in an office behind closed doors and pick apart everything in the charts. I’m ready to have a job where I don’t have to talk to people and I can put my extreme OCD skills to work. Well it’s that or starting a modeling career.
