Carrot love.

 I got a job.

Damn it!

I know... with so many people out of work...
I should be very grateful.

Don't get me wrong.
I am going to accept the job because it is a job...
and I needed a job.

Its not a job that I would have picked for myself.
And the rules are that I cannot turn down a job.

My unemployment checks would go away if I did.
I may as well accept the job then.

"Orientation" is next Weds.
That means that I have 
5 days
to find a job that is less upsetting to my life.

Honest work is honest work.

So what's my problem?

My problem is that my new "master" informed me that
I will work every single holiday or I will be fired.
I will work nights and weekends...

Which happens to be the only time that I can see Randy...
because of his graveyard hours.

Did I move here from a good paying, great job
to spend all my time alone or working for a pittance?

So I am pounding on doors the next 5 days...
and hoping for something else that won't be as 
destructive to my life.

Failing that saving me...
I'll be looking for other work in every spare hour I've got
until I can quit.

I'll I've got left to say is



  1. I hope that you can find a job that better suits yours/Randy's hours. Here's hoping for you!!

    1. Thank you Jackie. Its also a matter of having to drive for 35 minutes each way... for short hours... more time lost. I am afraid that by the time I buy my gas, I will actually make less than my unemployment check. And not see Randy. Rats.

  2. Well they say it is easier to find a job when you are employed so hopefully this will help you find something better. Good luck, and maybe the job will turn out to be OK after you work there a bit.

    1. I know you are right Shife! Randy said the same thing. I am hoping that is the case.

      I am spoiled, I know. But darn it, I have done my share of low paid no respect jobs. Paid those dues.

  3. Oh dear. I'm so sorry Silly Rabbit. I really do hope you are able to find something more reasonable very soon.

    1. Thank you larua b. I am feeling sorry for myself and being a bit of a brat. =;] But I am going to find a better job.

  4. Oh, dear. I was happy about you finding a job and then I read that the hours/money would be unacceptable. I don't know if it will help, but just know that I'm sending good wishes your way for your new job search.

    1. You always say the right things, Cube. Much appreciated! I am feeling better today. Sometimes you just have to blow off steam.

  5. BTW I forgot to mention that I really liked the
    the carrot love picture.

    1. Isn't it cute? Ha. But then silly rabbits do love their carrots. =;]

  6. I do hope you find something better. That wouldn't be any fun to work on holidays and weekends. I used to work the weekends when I worked at McDonalds while I was a college student and Fridays meant nothing to me.

  7. I'm sorry, that really sucks. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you find a better job very soon.

  8. your new master sounds like a real charmer. oh i hope your hours permit you to keep looking for something better.
