When you get a job or a house or a living or a life from anyone on ATS I’ll be more than happy for you.
Again... I just wanted anyone who might miss me to know the score. I was not making a plea, though it is awesome to see how many want to help,
offering suggestions and ideas.
I am rather active here, get U2Us and the flood control was making the personal contacting of those on my friends list quite time consuming and
tedious. Ergo, this thread.
And considering you’ve given no reason why you’re in the predicament you are - I’ll keep that opinion.
I am a graphic designer/video editor/Flash designer-animator/writer who was laid off the last job of that sort in the area (it's pretty much the
boonies here) in Feb 2006 when the new owner moved all graphics and newspaper production out of state.
Since that time I have applied to 100-150 jobs a WEEK online and in person, getting less and less picky as time has gone on. Most jobs, sadly, want
We put an ad in craigslist offering our services doing DOMESTIC work (house cleaning, dishes, windows, etc.) and ORGANIZING stuff - those were my jobs
- and YARDWORK, lifting, toting, fence repair, horse-stall cleaning and misc. - those were my fiance's jobs - when we were finally evicted from our
apartment for the inability to pay rent.
The couple who answered the ad had a friend who lost his job, ran out of money, and asked for help, so the couple had to make a choice between us and
their friend. The friend (of many years) won out.
There ya go. That's why we are in the boat we're in.
And since (I assume) ATS doesn’t pay you for being here - ATS isn’t conductive to your future either.
A few minutes here and there does NOT cause an issue with my duties.
What have you been doing all your life (other than spending time on ATS)?
Have you had this in-you-face attitude all YOUR life...?
Obviously nothing that gave you any security.
NO job gives "security," or haven't you looked around?
Vraiment??? Do tell what this smell is of.
Now maybe someone here will find you help.
Or someone here will get you a job.
Maybe even lend you money.
That’s all fine and good - I hope it works out.
I don't think I will need help, with the invention my fiance is waiting to hear about. If it is selected - and it's one of 13 still in the running
out of over 1000 submitted to a product idea search - we will have $2,500 up front and then royalties eventually.
Meanwhile, we are going to the nearest city qand being dropped off. Maybe we can find work then.
By the by I'm not a *Dude*...
Sorry, but truthfully... I call EVERYONE "Dude." LOL! Rather I call you "chick?" [wink]
