Sorry for leaving you hanging but Scoop has been pretty sick the last couple of days. Ear infection, vomit, more vomit, diarrhea and for something different, vomit.

Did not get job. Actually, I walked out of the "interview". There were 16-20 people sitting in a room with a projector set up. The receptionist handed me a folder and told me to have a seat with the other cattle. I looked through the folder and was not happy with what I saw. This was a job selling life insurance on commission basis to senior citizen. Yeah, senior citizens are their speciality.

I got up, walked over to the receptionist, handed her the folder and said, "I'm sorry, this isn't what I expected. I thought this was a job interview."

The snide little brat says, "Oh so you aren't interested in a job?"

"I'm interested in a job not this bullshit scam." I walked out.

What can I say? Her tone pissed me off.

Back to the want ads. But first, VOMIT!

I'd have walked out, too. Seriously? Senior citizens? WTF?!

Hope Scoop gets better lickety split.

Haha. Get it? Scoop? Ice cream? Lickety? What you do to keep ice cream from dripping? Split? Banana splits?

Yeah. I know. I'm a moron. That's what happens when you comment after numerous beers while watching the Super Bowl.

And I now want ice cream. Fantastic.

GOOD.ON.YOU! What a scam indeed! On people who can least afford it!!

Hope Scoop feels better soon and no one else gets it! I JUST heard the VOMIT VIRUS was going around our school again. Does NOONE have RESPECT for tax season hours?

Oh sorry Scoop isn't feeling well, sure hope it doesn't last long. So hard when little ones are sick, isn't it? They can't tell you what's wrong, so it's the guessing game and yep poop, vomit,poop, vomit and on and on and on.
Okay THANK YOU for not falling for that scam of a job. Senior Citizens so can't afford anything, half can't even buy groceries and insurance companies preying on them is just SICK!!! So I for one applaud you for standing up for them!!!! If only there were more like you in the world!!!
