I have attained a new level in poverty in my life, akin to my days of freshman-ness when I would only eat veggie sandwiches at Subway because they were a buck and a quarter. The stamp program was my Godsend. My excitement was uncontainable when I got 8 stamps... because I got to EAT MEAT!!! I never thought I would reach that level again. But I have. And surpassed.

Evidence:
1. I now shop at Wal-mart. I never in my entire life thought those words would leave my mouth(fingers?).
2. This is only AFTER getting everything I can at the DOLLAR TREE. *uncontrollable sobbing*
3. I had this fun experience today:
I found an ad on craigslist: "I need a qualified writer who can write detailed reports on varied websites. Qualified candidates must be 18+ of age. This will be part time work" and then it was signed with the person's name.

So I emailed said person about the position with my resume, and said I hoped to hear more if I fit the qualifications. Not 5 minutes later, I received a response.

Hi there,

The only requirement we have is that you submit a 100-word review of the members area at a pre-selected site [website removed]. The site offers a free trial so don't worry about any costs.

Please submit this review to [email removed] within 48 hours if you're interested in this home-based position.

Thanks for your time.


R E A L L Y??? Did someone really just ask me via a supposed job to sign up for and look at Porn?!? I was flabbergasted... and then proved myself poorer than ever by considering taking the job!!! O.o

(Addendum: Don't worry, I didn't. But still...)

    Wow hon. I'm sorry. All I've had to deal with lately is a couple stitches and a bad breakup. But they said $350 a week? J/k. Still....

    HA! I cannot believe that! My boss is hiring but it doesn't involve too much writing other than emails. You should apply because I would love to see your beautiful face every day!
