I've thought that as well and so have others.

WTF!? Seriously, look for a damn job already. Nobody is going to make you start working before the new year, and if they do, you'll get time off.  If you go in for an interview, just say "I'm sorry, but I planned a vacation around the holidays when I was working at my last place." Most employers arent going to care, seeing as this trip was booked in advance. Plus, its something NOW. In the time you wait, you may end up losing the best job.

 But ya know what, your not going to listen to me. Keep taking your parents advise, they have been real gems so far.

has anyone ever noticed that brtd and bushie have some similarities....they both get weird obsessions.

If "weird obsessions" means you have a mental illness, then half the internet needs to be locked up.....and the other half should at least go on meds.

One would have hoped that the new expansion of World of Warcraft would have distracted BushOK enough from posting here, but alas ...

Uh what? BushOK is soooooooooooooooooo far from the stereotypical WoW player. I mean he doesn't even play games besides Wii, and the Wii is almost universally hated among the hardcore gaming subculture.

Yeah, I'm not much of a gamer.  I like the Wii because I don't have the money to get anything else. Smiley

True.  Its real strength is as a social gaming platform.  Have some mixed company over, play wii sports etc...occasionally play the mario/zelda games (which are excellent).

Today is Tuesday, and I will probably look on Career Builder again for a little bit today, just to see what's out there.  I also need to get started cleaning this house.  I don't have anywhere to go today, so I should be able to get quite a bit done.  I'm also going to get my suitcase out and slowly get things ready for the trip.  I've got the list made of things to take, now it's about time to start translating the list to the suitcase.

Then why the hell are you packing now??

I'm going down to visit my parents for the Holidays and going for almost 2 weeks (22nd to the 4th), I won't even think of packing until the night before I leave and probably won't until an hour or so before I leave.

If only he could be this obsessive about his job search...

I have been looking for jobs today.  There is a possibility I may have an interview sometime this week, hopefully.  I'm specifically looking at jobs that start in January.  I figure while I'm just sitting here, I might as well do something productive.  I'm very tempted to try to get my job back at Sprint when I get back.

I think he meant more than just applying, but rather actually researching a job to make sure you don't get suckered into another scam.

Wait a minute. There's a chance you can get your Sprint job back after they let you go? How does that make any sense?

I know. I dont get why he would even consider going back. After hearing what he said about the place, I wouldnt want to work there. I understand you shouldnt talk back to your boss, but they apparently wont let you speak your mind, and will get rid of you in a heartbeat. I dont think that place is worth it. Most call centers arent, mainly because its a high turn around. They will always be hiring, because they will need someone to jump right in after some accidently farts at work.

The funny thing is I spent the better part of 3 hours searching this afternoon, but sent in 0 applications.  I have a recruiter for a staffing company supposed to call me back on Wednesday with response to a couple jobs they have that pay pretty well.

Maybe it is just me, but if I were under financial stress, and out of work, I would be miserable doing anything but looking for work - 24/7 - real work. I cannot image doing anything else!  I don't like being dependent on other folks to carry me. Never have. In fact, even though I did [not] have to, I got a part time job in college at the University of Chicago (I sorted and delivered the mail in the Law School to the professors, some of whom have since become nationally famous, like Posner and Epstein, both of whom I got a chance to chat with from time to time (an added bonus)), so that I did not have to hit up my Dad for money as much - plus it gave me some extra bucks to finance my wild side, without feeling so guilty that my Dad was paying for it.

Same here.....and I was tempted to say young folks today aren't like that......but most of the youngs here seem willing to do whatever it takes to make it on their own without help from home.  Commendable!

I am waiting for a staffing recruiter to call me back this afternoon about possible jobs, but other than that, I am officially suspending all job search until January 3.  If you don't count today, I've got 6 full days to clean, do laundry, and pack. If I did do any job search it would have to be online, I couldn't go out at all, simply because I have way too much stuff to do at home.  I lose Thursday evening, because I'm going down to see the Christmas lights in Chickasha, about 45 minutes southwest of Oklahoma City.  I'll lose all day Sunday because of church that morning, then I'm going to my grandmother's right after church to get ready for our church's annual Ornament Exchange beginning at 5:30 at my grandmother's home.  So, I'll be gone from about 8:30 am - 8:00 pm.  I'll probably lose a few hours Monday evening, as well, as I'll have a men's meeting at church at 7:00.  So, my only full days are Friday, Saturday, and Tuesday.  It's getting down to crunch time.  I'm not like most men where I can just throw things in a duffel bag the night before and call it good.  I'm a little more sophisticated than that.

Not only do I have things to do here, but I have other things I have to do at my parents and at my grandmother's.
