Well, it's been a while
But I've been busy job hunting and all that jazz. Not sure how it is where you all are, but here it's 7 people per open job. I have an interview on the 10th and another place that did a phone interview and will *hopefully* call back. It's back to school time, so there's more jobs opening up now. Plus I found out that a lot of companies have laid people off and are hiring through temp services. I talked to a bunch of people that lost their job, and was offered their exact job through a temp services for a lower pay. If I don't get the job on the 10th (or the other by then) I'll be going to a temp service that Monday.
So I was originally going to get a place with someone when I moved down here *enter peeve part*... Instead a friend of mine asked me to come stay with her and her family, and to keep an eye on her house while they were on vacation. The other night I went out to the bar with some friends, and this friend I'm staying with (let's call her Jane) sends me a text message asking when I'll be home and if I plan to wake everyone.... I sent her a text that I was shooting a game of pool and just had gotten a fresh beer, and that I would use the back door so nobody would wake up. After a few texts back and forth we kinda got into it. The icing on the cake was when she said "I offered you a place to stay when you had none to go to". To which I said "NO, I had THREE places I could have moved into, I NEVER asked to stay with you". Then she started on a mom-deal, trying to act like a mom and tell me what to do. I'm 27 years old, I have a mom - she is supposed to be a friend!!!
So the next morning she comes in my room while I'm hung over and sleeping and says she wants to talk. I said "I'm hungover and can't discuss anything without flipping out right now, so I'm not ready to talk". She says she has things she wants to say, whatever she says them. Then she says "Do you have nothing to say?"
WELL DUH - I said I couldn't talk without flipping out so NO, I have nothing to say at that time!
She was away for a day, and she's on her way home. Her and I are going to have to sit down and talk about this, now that I'm calm and won't flip out. I'm just furious that she would offer me a place then tell me I had no other place to go. And to act like my mom?? No, I'm 27 years old, I have a DAMN good head on my shoulders, I spent the last 5 years away from home - so far away that NO family could even drive to help me if need be. I can handle my shit, I don't need anyone telling me what I should be doing, or how I should be doing it! I am a very independent person, and HATE when people intrude on that.
*sigh* I can't wait to get a job and get out of here.
So how's everyone else??
