I was terminated for no call no shows. stupid phone didn't work and didn't always put money into it. oh well. It hasn't been 6 months. think they'll call me? haha!

I doubt it but no one else responds to my applications and resumes. I am too much of a retard to go to military and I will be homeless soon.

crossed my fingers for Costco but fat chance as those employees get paid and treated well, they didn't call!

Don't know where else to apply to for a job. not even walmart called me back.

name a retail place and I applied for it! its like jobs are non existent and the ones that are do not give full time!

most places on craigslist that are advertised need you to have a vehicle and I cannot afford one!

I like life but I suppose it will be interesting to live on the street as I only have half a year now.

I guess we are not all meant to survive! I will miss watching movies and having a microwave! bummers

I will also miss my bed - when you get evicted they just throw your stuff away right? oh well. Ill also miss my computer.

I am jealous of all of you who have families and homes and friends and jobs!

I decided to make this post drunk as I found old bottle of whisky in my pantry as I cleaned it out. may as well be a drunk if no one will call me for a jub.

what woud u do if your applications were ignored and you were going to lose your apartment and u had no where else to turn to? I guess I am just dumb dumb retard that should rott on street.

I love everybody right now! the Purdy colors make me happy

Did you apply for unemplyment?
Even if they termed you for NCNS there is still a chance.
Look I feel bad for you, I don't want anyone to be homeless and I understand feeling sorry for yourself.
Been there, still do that way more than I should.
But you have to fight back.
This world will roll over you given half a chance and the only way to survive is to stand up and scream.
Don't just put in applications and wait, be aggresive.
If you still can't get a job make like every other day laborer and go down to the corners.
You may not be able to do the skilled work but you can haul and use a shovel.
Fight back dammit.
Do't let them crush you, please.

You sir are inspiring and I am not saying that because I am drunk still. I only have a headache now!

I do like physical labor! I applied as a janitorial custodian at a hospital too. That would seem like a peaceful environment surrounded by death.

I found a craigslist job of a car lot that needs people to wash their cars for full time! but they require a drivers license so I assume they need me to move their cars and I don't have one. or anyone to really teach me how to drive just to pass a the test. and I think you need to bring your own car to pass the test so wtf

but I like you sir. you have given me some sort of motivation to do something but I don't know what that is yet.

so if no one has told you or as spread the word... commicorvus is a motivational and inspirational force against the incredible weight of the world crushing down upon my chest like a compressed singularity or something.

ok I am a little drunk still.

but that was actually inspiring.

I found this when I was typing "i'm ***** I can't find a job" in a search engine, I filtered the curse words if you don't want to go to the link!

Being the neighbor's day laborer is why I got the job at Spot in the first place! "Sorry, can't work for you anymore, I got a job". He wanted me to pave his backyard with paving stones. I didn't want any puddles or cracks to be my fault. Guy was super picky too. I finally moved a few months ago.

I don't feel very sorry for him or her.

Go in and check your schedule. People were able to call off of work before cell phones. If you had a couple of quarters you could have called the store. That's a joke. Why even bother reapplying? If you NCNS'd you're not rehireable, and you shouldn't be. I hope you get another job, I really do, and you decide to be responsible this time.

Also if you get an interview if they ask you why you left don't say it's because you're a dumb dumb retard. They won't call you back.

Don't just send in an app and wait for a call. Call them if they haven't called you.

If you're having trouble finding a job, contact your local community college and inquire about their workforce development program. Or try a staffing agency. They can help you put together a resume and work on your interview skills. Even if the best you can find is a temp job, temporary employment is better than no employment.

Don't lose hope. Giving up and putting yourself down won't get you anywhere.

Heya, Harvest...

something about your situation really got to me-maybe it's because my first ever job was as a sidewalk vendor, which was a big magnet for homeless/indigent/otherwise "unemployable' youth, or just because of a "there but for the grace of God go I" kind of thing, but here goes...

Get. A. Reliable. Alarm. Clock. Whether it's an actual alarm clock, a decent prepaid or pay-as-you-go phone with an alarm function, a trustworthy roommate, a loyal dog or cat, doesn't matter. Please do this. Do this or else find a way to train yourself to get up at sunrise and be in bed and asleep by midnight....

If you are in a place where you can access a library, do so effective immediately, assuming you have not done that already. Computer access, they may have computer literacy classes, job resources, etc...

If you see a job posting for sign spinners for local businesses, usually barber shops, "We Buy Gold"-type places, for the love of all things holy, at this point, APPLY!!! Like, NOW!!! Whether it's what you like or not, prefer or not, or whether it's fair or not, you hardly have your pick of employment prospects ( I'm not being snnarky or sanctimonious, more like an "I should know")

And even though it may not seem like it right now, now is one of the most pivotal points of your life. You are, as I'm sure you know, in a make-or-break situation. Even though it may not seem like it matters what you do or who you do it with or around or to .... trust me... it does...and it can...now...tomorrow..or a decade down the line...

So be careful. Be as prepared as you can be for every job interview, OR, maybe now is the time you discover your life's passion, your calling, you career, whatever...

Good luck and take care.

No offense, but that's stupid as hell.

Don't do it.

Because if you do, and fail, you will end up with a GIANT fucking hospital bill, *TRUST* me on this one.



Things can, and will, get better. This much is assured. You'll obviously have to deal with a ton of shit on your way there, but it *WILL* happen!

To the OP:

I have been in your shoes (almost).

Granted, I haven't been in danger of losing my home, I feel you on the rest of this stuff.

I am/was suicidal. I have been to damn dark places that I'm pretty sure other people wouldn't even begin to fathom.

My girlfriend has also been there, and has even tried to end it (and I thank God every day that she didn't succeed).

I applied for jobs for 2 years before anyone called me back. Target was the only place that gave me a chance. McDonald's, Burger King, Wal-Mart, etc... None of them gave a damn about me. Target was the first and only place that ever called me back for an interview.

If you get rehired, buy an alarm clock. Write your schedule down and abide by it like it's your Bible.

I know that things look sh***y right now OP, but sh** happens. And it will continue to happen. Follow everyone's advice that they have provided. OP, I know you are stronger than you are acting on here, because I used to be the same way.

Do I still get miserable? Hell yes. Do I want to kill myself over stupid crap? No. Even if you can't go to therapy (I go) find someone to talk to about everything.

EVERYTHING. WILL. BE. OKAY.

Lol I find it hilarious when people tell people in his situation to "go to college" like it is some kind of magical fix-all solution. The guy is obviously not in the mind set to be successful in a rigorous college program right now. Furthermore, he is facing eviction. Adding thousands of dollars in college expenses is the last thing he needs to be doing. Not only that, again, he is facing eviction. He doesn't have time to be in college anywhere from 1 to 4 years and then get a job.... he needs a job *now*.

Instead, he needs to broaden his prospects outside of retail. Obviously there is something (maybe it is just you area) that is preventing retailers from calling you. You need to expand your horizons for jobs... look at landscaping companies (almost always hiring), warehouses that need labor work, etc. There are jobs out there... just think outside the box.
