Help Wanted

It's official. I am, once again, on the hunt for a new job. To give a short re-cap of my last 6 months here at my current job: they've sucked. Not in the terrible way the job before this sucked... but in a whole new creative way of suckage.

When I explained the dilemma I was in to my Director and inquired about transferring into a different unit inside of my current department, it took him over two weeks to look up some HR rule that says "NO DICE" for those that want to transfer under their 1 year anniversary mark. (And I am not even going to mention the tiny detail of there being two (2) open positions in the unit I want to transfer to. Nope, not going to mention that at all.)


So, I have begun the job hunt, once again. But, this time it is a little more scary than last time, seeing that, I am not entirely sure I want to stay in the Technology field. Actually, I am pretty darn positive that I want to get away from all things SQL and all things looking like a Help Desk.

So, as a collective MHIBTY-audience, let's brainstorm different kind of jobs that I can apply for. To help us get started I've compiled a list of things that I enjoy doing.

  • Gift wrapping
  • Doing makeup
  • Decorating
  • Making old-fashioned oatmeal
  • Coloring
  • Making bulleted lists
  • Working out
  • Texting in full and complete sentences

Alright everyone, you have your assignment, now get to work. Jobs with signing bonuses or 4 weeks vacation or 20 hour work weeks or all 3 will get first consideration.

Hmmmm....I think we have a community coordinator position open here at the courthouse, I seem to remember there being one, at least, your job duties would be working with area businesses to get involved int he community and stuff like that, it's for a people person. It is a 20 hour a week job, pay real decent, and is a long term position, I believe culminating in 2011 when the judges are supposed to go on horseback tours of the state or something, I dunno I hate people so I ignored it. We have a full gym here, we have baby showers and parties in which gift giving would be seen as a plus... I will see about it and send some stuff your way. You will be required to A) buy me a burnt end sandwich and fries, or B) Put out, or C) put out while buying me a burnt end and fries for this information.

What if I buy you a burnt-end sandwhich and fries and give you back your Orgazmo DVD? Or was that my copy to keep?

Hey yeah! I wondered where that went! I need to see T-Rex again! Lemme check into it and I will let you know; in the meantime, you have something I want, do you plan to hold it ransom? I got SUperbad and Breakin!

I LOVE that "gift wrapping" tops the list. Even with your recent gift wrapping mishap you are still the most enthusiastic, creative & dedicated gift-wrapper I know or will ever know. Unfortunate that Christmas is still 7 months away.
