I am at the end of my rope! I got jury duty! YAY! I went in for my first day today at jury duty. Usually that means I spend a day doing nothing special for no reason at all, cause I get cancelled before the day is all done. Well, no, not today. I am in the jury box. The judge doesn't care that I WILL NOT be able to meet my financial responsibilities at the end of this two week trial, because I will have NO income except the pittance the court gives you for doing your civil duty. I will be bankrupt again...Second time in two years. Except that I can't go bankrupt for another eight years. I have a black cloud hanging over my head. I lost a three and a half year job, in 2003, because of the boss's indiscretions. Lucky for him, the business was saved by his wife and the previous business owner. So they still have a cushy income. Then, the next job I got I lost after two years because the company did cut backs, leaving me and my boss to do the work of five people, only my boss was doing his work behind closed doors leaving me to look like the stupid idiot who couldn't get any work done...they decided to go e-commerce...letting me go...thank God, I really hated that job. Now, I have a job that is good, but like I said in a previous post, I am not able to make ends meet. I was in the process of finding more lucrative employment. (I took this job at the zero hour, just before my unemployment ran out) I am making $3.50 less than the first job I lost and $2.25 less than the last one. I am seeing a pattern here. Soon I will be making the same amount I was making at my very first job! ($2.75 an hour!)
I know, I know...there are a lot of people in dire straights right now. Ladies...I cried over the price of ORANGES today!!!!! $1.49 per pound for the cheapest ones.
Can someone stop the planet, cause I want to get off! Sorry, I'm just a little butt hurt right now.
