So, I decided to not work in the restaurant industry anymore. That doesn't give a man with a weak resume, a weak network, and an inability to find a way to convince people that I am right for a job that pays somewhat higher than minimum wage. Anyway, after going through a lot of hoops, I started working for UPS. It's supposed to be a great place to work, that's all I ever hear. Don't believe it. Like I said, I had to jump through hoops and the best I can get in a loader job that doesn't pay well. I won't reveal how much because it's embarrassing. It's also part time so I still have to find another job, and I have no clue what may come on the horizon.
I don't need this shit! I deserve better, I'm smart, talented, witty and a good worker at the menial jobs I've done. Maybe I spent too much time in Seattle and that may have ruined any chance at getting a good job here in Jersey, but still, I have all my connections here and so far it hasn't worked. One thing I've noticed, is that the worst jobs I ever had came on the advice of people I thought were after my best interest. A 40 year old man lugging boxes around for small wages is not the way I wanted to go. Part time, work that is exhausting. No way I'm staying longer than I have to. It's possible I may fail my way up into a better position. Anyway, I can hope
The next six months are going to suck as I've said before.
