I finally get done with all that and this lady calls me and asked me to go to this store and call her when i get there, shes in another state, so i get there and call her, but i took my tracfone and it died in the middle of talking to her, it was fully charged and i didnt have my charger with me, i went to the managers there and told them what happened and they let me use their phone so i called her back and told her what happened. anyways, it was a phone call for about 40 minutes, kind of like training, afterwards when i asked her when im supposed to go there next she got kind of quiet and never answered me , the wk before i had gotten these emails asking me to click on if i was interested or not in offers for store training, i had clicked on interested in a couple of them to give them more options of when to go to in store ... less
Ive always foun... more Ive always found it hard to get jobs, I was talking to my twin sister today, we're 4ft5 and she was telling me that one time when she went for a job they actually told her they couldnt hire her cause of being short, it just made me wonder if theyre doing that to her if theyre also doing it to me, the only time i seem to get jobs is if i didnt meet them first, like resorts, stuff like that, someone has been really interested in hiring me to hand out samples in the stores and i havent told them yet im so short, they havent seen me cause its based in another state. im worried if they hire me they might change their minds once they see me in person. do you think its possible thats happening? and if it is how can i stop it, tired of being out of work all the time less

Im in school and i cant even do homework and i cant do it at night cause construction guys will bother me early the next morning. its just exhausting to hear someone talking constantly, i know i might have ADD cause i cant tune it out. I might have a job soon so that might help me save money if i want to move or at least get away from her more. anyone else go thru... less

I had just scanned some stuff over a wk ago. things like voided checks for direct deposit so they can pay me, copy of ID's etc., i was at school today and when i got home i got a message saying she had called. so im going to call her back in the morning. Ive been sending out resumes for a while between school breaks and i find it ironic that that particular resume had been sent out christmas day. theyve had to process stuff like background checks, etc., i think i might have to do a drug test soon, that might be what she called about.... less

Ive tried several jobs and none have worked out. the last one was at a calling center, i scored a 73 on their test instead of an 85, i was only there two wks, i do better in food service and left the resorts only cause i had to have two hip implants and a knee surgery, so how do i kee... less

I finally got done this morning with everything, they called me monday, so it took me this long to get everything done. anyways, today i went to the library and printed out the certificate, then went to the post office which is near the library, got a big envelope and put all 32 pages plus a copy of the certificate which im surprised i passed, im bad at passing stuff and mail... less

Rover.com is interested in me where i could housesit and watch dog, but id have to get a smart phone and then pay a phone bill every month, after these experiences i decided not to do that, figured if they want me they can call me on my landline. any suggestions? im fed up to be honest. less

I went on a job interview with tutor doc about a wk and a half ago, she seemed so interested in me while she was emailing me but then after i saw her in person, i never heard from her again. so is this possible? I might go for ssi under being a dwarf, i heard you can get it for that reason alone.

I was literally living with no income for yrs at a time. I got to the point where I went back to school just to live on financial aid. Last wk someone from teletech called me , they had my number from applications i had filled out with them before. I told them I wasnt sure I could work there cause i didnt do that good on the assessments so thats why they hadnt hired me before. the girl I talked to said that they took the assessment requirement for the job out and asked me to come in for an interview the next day, I went and they hired me, what I find ironic is that someone upstairs changed the rules specifically for me so id get employed, thats just so weird, ive never had that happen before. an... less

I dont want to turn it down cause i have a really hard time finding work, and the only money i get is grants, and thats 3 times a yr, i cant even get a work study, i might finish the 2 classes but thats it. anyone ever have to do that cause of a job? less

Im in school now and theres been construction going on every night till midnight except for wknds. Im in school and need my sleep, monday night they had trucks outside going beep beep for hrs really loud, they dont bother me so much if theyre just hammering cause i can turn my fan on and wear earplugs, but the beep beep goes over the noise of my fan. last night i got lucky cause it rained and they left. unfortunately , its not going to rain every night. bad enough i get woken up early but this midnight stuff is too much, any suggestions? filing a complaint dont help cause they have a permit that says they can do it at all hrs. Im exhausted from all this and hoping I dont get sick from lack of sleep. less

Ive thought of research studies or medical trials, but not sure if they pay you or how to get involved with them, im 56 and cant get old age pension for another 4 yrs, im in school now so im getting stuff like grants. but i dont find learning easy so im not sure how long i can keep that up? any suggestions? less

I get foodstamps and hud cause of being out of work. been going to school for over a yr and have tried to get work study jobs but never was able to get one, i went to a work study job fair and ive been getting emails from someone in marketing, yesterday they sent me one asking me when i can come for an interview and even told me to bring the paperwork they give you to have someone from work study fill it out for financial aid. i would love to get one of those cause i have a huge gap in my employment history thats making it hard to get hired, i plan on taking it but i was curious about the rest of it, any ideas? less

I'm 4ft5 and I find I never have anyone to hang out with and do stuff with. I'm 55 but I look a lot younger cause of being short. Do people feel like theyre hanging out with some teenager and is that why they never want to do stuff with me? Not even neighbors, I always see them knocking on each others door but never mine and theyre around the same age I am, maybe a little older. If I go to church people wont even sit with me or even ask me to go out with them after for lunch or whatever but they sit with each other and i know they go to lunch with each other cause I've heard them talk about it. And dont say go to another church, been there and done that and i get the same story.
Just wondered if it makes people uncomfortable to be around short people, like do i look too young for them to hang out with them? or what? Not sure how I can change it, I cant make myself grow, any suggestions? tired ... less

I get called from people in my family like my brothers who will only call me once a yr and ignore me the rest of the yr, literally, and yes ive tried emailing them in between but they get bored with it and quit. some dont even call at all, others like my aunt and uncle will just send a facebook message since my aunt got facebook now, i find that disappointing cause theyre getting older and theyre in south america where i was born but i want to talk to them, not just get a facebook message, they're almost 90 so i have no idea how many more times i'll be able to talk to them anyways, they call my twin sister cause she dont have facebook, i have a half sister that i havent heard from in 3 yrs but calls my sister all the time. others will call my twin but wont call me, and some wont call at all. Im just tired of taking calls from people that will only call cause of a date on the calendar but not cause they care. none of them will send me a card either, except fo... less

I dont know if its cause im short, 4ft5 and people just dont think of me as an adult or what. its just diappointing to never have anyone to hang out with, invite you nowheres, etc., not even on my birthday which is coming up soon, i know noone will invite me over and i cant even go nowheres that day cause its sunday and buses dont run.

today when i was in church someone's daughter showed up and she was homeless. i think shes been homeless for yrs too, i think she mightve had some kind of problem cause she was talking to herself, i think she couldve had some mental issues, the pastor kicked her out instead of helping her, the mom didnt even want to go and talk to her, not sure why, i dont know if she was on drugs or drinking or what but she was out... less

I was beyond ticked. I didnt have my trac fone with me, wish i had had it with me but they probably wouldve blown it up with their fireworks. and yes, i did call the police about it and told them so they could stop them from throwing it,i felt i needed to tell them be... less

Im so glad the 4th will be over soon, i also hate the 4th cause i flew to my mother's funeral that day and dont need to be reminded of that all night every night. and forget about reporting it, they just do it anyways. Ive always had something wrong with my jaw and if i get too tired and start yawning that can get painful which is why i want my sleep, plus i dont enjoy being startled by them either. im almost glad theres less nighttime hours in the summer or id be hearing it even more less
