NAFTA, I have kicked myself a thousand times for making a light hearted comment about not having a job (a few days ago). I hope you can forgive me!

It's quite alright. I knew you were kidding.

JS, there's no way you were supposed to know.....I don't have anything against you....there just seems to be some invisible wall that I can't seem to find my way over to the side of gaining employment for some UN-Godly reason.....and none of these places ever gives me a logical reason as to why I don't get hired, they just say "we're still looking for candidates" "we're not actually hiring right now, we're just running the ad".....and the worst part is that they all say that they're hiring......so why not me?? Even the temp agencies haven't done squat for me.....been over a year......losing faith quick....

I know when I was looking for a teaching job, I kept hearing the most pathetic excuses..."You don't sound like a science teacher." (It's elementary school...I can be a science teacher!)..."You refuse to paddle students." (Yes, I was really told that. I can make students mind without paddling!)..."You aren't quite what we're looking for." (Then, tell me! I can adapt!) It was insane. I remember feeling pretty worthless. I hope and pray you find work quickly at a reliable place.

You seem to be very intelligent, I know it has to be frustrating and for some reason things like that always seem worse on Christmas. I have faith that you'll find something. I promise you that I'll pray that you find something, I give you my word on that, I believe you're going to find something soon.

Do you mind if I ask what kind of work you do?

Of course not, I'm a cop

I'm sorry, for some reason I was thinking I had already told you. How has your Christmas been?

It's been strange. We all opted for a small dinner. Some couldn't make it and some were feeling a little sick. How has your day been?

I had noticed on your profile it said law enforcement/security (I think), but I didn't know for sure.
Report as
It's been very nice. I have an 11 year old daughter and she's spending Christmas with her mother this year so I volunteered to work. So there weren't a lot of people show up for your Christmas dinner?
Report as
I honestly didn't remember putting that on my profile lol. I don't tell everyone. Some people aren't real crazy about Police Officers. It's what I do for a living, not who I am, if that makes sense lol

Mom fixed most of the dinner. We knew my brother & family and my oldest sister & family couldn't make it. My sister that passed away-her husband was sick. So, it was Mom, a sister, my son, and myself. One of my nieces showed up an hour late! :) That was lengthy, sorry!
Report as
You don't have to apologize! I prefer the lengthy comments :) most of my comments take up several lines. I hope that you and the family members that showed up had a wonderful time! I'm doing this from my iPhone so I apologize if my replies are coming in slow. See, mine was quite lengthy as well :)
Report as
I always feel honored to receive a comment from you, especially the lengthy ones!

I know that you had said something about missing someone this year, are you ok?
Report as

This isn't the first Christmas without my sister, so I'm shocked I'm missing her so much. It has changed from the raw, mind numbing sorrow to an aching, bittersweet sadness. That's progress. :)
Report as
I'm so sorry. I wish there was something I could say that would make you feel better. I thought about that today and wondered how you were doing.
