Where were they two months ago?
Between today and yesterday, I've gotten either e-mails or phonecalls saying "come interview with us" or, "we'd like to hire you now" totaling 13.

I'm not exactly sure how this works, but, you know..whatever. They couldn't have called me last week, so I wouldn't have this commute?

Dude, 14 jobs, you could retire in a couple years. :D

Couldn't work more then two fulltime jobs, if you counted commuting, so...say...two and a bit, taking into consideration the ability to work and sleep on trains...
Yeah, I'd be able to retire at 35 or so.


Of course, I'd be dead by 27.

But if you could just hold on 7 more years!

Pheh. He obviously doesn't want it enough.

Nah. I mean, if I worked that much, I'd have to give up my heroin habit, and I wouldn't have enough time to find the goat pimps to sell me the stock of theirs that had gotten old and used up.

And a life without snorting coke out of the asscrack of freshly screwed and slaughtered goats just isn't worth living.

That visual needs to be burned and nevereverever brought forth in to the daylight AGAIN.

It was the only thing left to lower my P-Score, according to ardaniel.

today at work I learned that california minimum wage is $8, except for sheepherders.

seriously, that's what it says.

...well, duh. I mean, they don't have to pay for hookers or buy hot chicks drinks. Just a fence and a pair of goulashes.

C'mon, think positively!

You could telecommute at least two or three of those...

So, what, you want me to DIE? Is that it?

(Ok, so I took one more of them that I can telecommute to, and is sort of short contracty, bursty stuff that is pretty flextime.)

Also, the answer to the commute is to move, silly.
blackcoat From: blackcoat Date: July 16th, 2008 08:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, but my lease isn't up until december. And I'm not even sure if this contract will still be around then.

There's more work (generally) on my side of the bay, or the south bay.

Also, I owe you drinks. When do you have free time?
