Now you see me…

Now you don’t.

Apparently I’ve been cloaked with invisibility. THREE times while driving home last night, cars swerved into my lane as if I weren’t there.

Sadly, I can only blame myself.

These near death experiences were likely caused by my lack of a decent car wash. Long gone are the days of plopping down $25 for a wash and wax. It’s been…

Um…


5 months since my last wash. My car is sporting dirt and bird poop camouflage.

Sure I could wash it myself…

Just like I could go to the gym…or eat healthy…or shower more than once bi-weekly…But it’s not likely.


Also noted in the category of things invisible…

My resume.


I’m on application #122, cover letter #47, personal drop off #9, and call for an interview....

#0

Thinking my resume was the problem, I consulted my college career center and asked for assistance.

Suggested changes made to resume… 0

Minutes wasted in career center… 36.



I’ve applied everywhere from large corporations to… Jack in the Box.

Yeah.

Sure it was for the corporate office but I REALLY wanted to work there so I can tell my friends I work at Jack in the Box. I’d never mention my real paper pushing occupation. Instead, I’d suggest they drive thru and see me sometime.



For those concerned, we’re still getting by financially. Buuut… I have become one of ‘THOSE’ people at the grocery store. I went shopping with my couch cushion and ash tray money on Sunday. As soon as the total hit 40 bucks, I made the poor bag boy restock the items I couldn’t afford.

I thought I would be embarrassed but in these unsettling times, I just consider it doing my part for bag boy job security.

You’re welcome.
