Applied for a job yesterday and was then told that it paid $6.50/hr. Nowhere in this country is that a legal wage. They seem to think that offering 10% commission on the business you take in makes some sort of difference.
Forever 21 Under Investigation For Using 'Sweatshop-Like' Factories In Los Angeles http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012... via @HuffPostBiz - "We have proof that the goods going to Forever 21 from certain garment contractor shops are being sewn by people who aren't being paid properly," Priscilla Garcia, director of the Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division...
I received a voicemail today from a woman. The voicemail said that she cannot receive incoming calls due to their phone system, so she would just have to keep trying to call me until I was able to answer (and not miss the call as I did today). This was from a medical clinic that I go to, so it's legit but WTF kind of phone system is that?!
Don't you just hate it when someone appreciates your work and sends you a PayPal donation to show it, only to end up disputing the validity of that donation a few weeks later, practically accusing you of fraud, ending up with paypal forcing you to refund it, plus additional fees to paypal, turning their generous donation into a loss of funds?
Hubby is out of work again, since the end of the first week of September.(forgot to update you guys...sorry) His new boss decided he couldn't afford to pay him for the time he worked and is still holding $300 of my husband's money and won't give it to him.
Invited someone to an "event" which I enjoy yet the person is not sure they can make it. I was under the impression that said person wanted to come with and would make time in their schedule to attend. Then they proceed to tell me how they don't think the event is fun. Well, then STFH. H means Home.
Not quite a bitchfest-type item, but could someone explain to me why someone who doesn't drink alcohol is all excited about going to happy hour? Because aside from discounted appetizers/small plates, I'm not sure I see the appeal for a nondrinker.
Okay, I got called out by my sister about posting my weight on Facebook. I am happy because I lost 3.5 pounds and down to about 317, I'm not ashamed of it. She's not on my friends list, but I post most of my posts public. Is it wrong to post your weight? I'm excited, because of the weight I'm losing. I went from 350 last year to 317.
I want to go out! I want to be around other people! I want some real life friends! I am sick and tired of being in the house, sick and tired of the only real human contact I have with anyone being my husband, who goes out of his way to annoy the shit out of me.
