    Default This unemployment business is getting kind of boring!

    It's 8:30am and I've been up since 7am; normally I'd go outside tend to my garden or sit, smoke cigarettes, drink coffee and read, but today I hopped on the computer and in a moment of clarity wondered ''what has become of my life?'' be. I occasionly do some 'massage' work,but I'm traditionally a two-job person; my last stunt in America had me working 3 jobs, being a workaholic is the nature of my beast and last week I was reminded of days gone by when a cousin of mine liken herself to me because of the many jobs she has,; I might have complained of working too much, but I really enjoyed it and miss it dearly now.

    I know this economic down-turn isn't going anywhere in the near-future, but I long for the days when you could pick up a paper, answer a few ads and get couple of jobs; I miss riding the rails of the job market. Not just for the money, but for the productivity and the sense of fulfillment. I should blame my Grandmother for my need to work: I remember her sitting on her bed looking through the situation vacant ads, 61 years old and recovering from complications of Diabetes, even though she was drawing both her own and my grandfather's pension, she was still consumed by the need to work for no other reason other than that's what she has always done. Once a worker, always a worker

    you are to be commended for your work ethic ....i passed a dole que the other day it frightened me to see the amount of people in it in fact i was embarrased passing them....i dont know why,i remember a few years ago looking at the "usual suspects" that were there cause they did not want work but now its so hard to see people that want work but ant find any.

    Wow, you're showing a whole new side to you AnitaSizzle. I would never have expected this, especially from an escort. Most escorts are still snoozing until midday. Great topic, really interesting.

    Theres a lot of ppl in your position. Personally the whole economic downturn stuff is extreamly frustrating for me. Its sucks big time. Its not even an issue of money but more of an issue of similar to what you say.

    Judging by statistics unemployment has decreased from 13.2% to 12.9% over the past month.Yes it only a small % but it all counts,hopefully this time next year things will be better.I am in a similar position and it is killing me.
    I have lived a life of regrets.

    Personally I think the economy in this country is totally fucked up, small business still can not get money from the banks for cash flow, this is slowing the whole economy and bringing the country to a standstill

    I think you are a great writer Anita. You can drop me a PM anytime you want to add freelance writer to your job mix. I'd pay you to write a regular column here.

    From the time I turned 16, legal age a minor can work here the States, and most of my adult life, I've had at least two or three jobs; I didn't get into prostitution until my late 20's and even then I'd work a day shift at a massage parlour and then work at an escort agency through the night

    The sick part is that these bastards of politicians will go on holidays soon and then come back in a few months and upset the whole country with threats of cutting this and that all the while continueing to overclaim expenses on luxuries that could be done without.

    This is what i mean about Lenehans illness. In a few months time this guy will go on about cutting this and that and not give a shit about its effects on anyone.
