The Straycat has a job

I start Tuesday, money isn't wonderful, but it's something coming in, and I'll be able to start paying bills. Thank god!

A lot of my problem is that I've been around too many blocks, and a lot of people don't know what to do with me. At my interview, he asked me what I did at another soldering gig, I told him I'd be hard-put to give him a job title because they moved me around so much. Then the guy asked what I did at the hospital. I told him I was the housekeeper you slipped a ten to, and got your answer, only no one slipped me a ten. I was a housekeeper, mostly, but also showed a unit secretary how to download something to disc, page someone from the internet, Spanish/English interpreter, and a few other things.

I've been a holistic practitioner, dressmaker, bank officer, vet tech, pet sitter, restaurant owner. What do you do with a resume like that?

I was asked on an interview with a temp agency, what kind of job are you looking for. I said a job where I punch in, do my work, punch out, no one dies, no lives are in my hands, everyone speaks English. I think I have that now. Oh, and I hope I have it until I retire.

Now, all I have to do is survive until the first paycheck...
