Quicky

Super short post, I have been busy since Den is home this week. We are trying to get the yard in order and Anna is trying to find a job. She has a babysitting job for the summer but.........she needs to make a bit more. She had a job lined up and secured for the summer, it was at a friend's dad's company but they just had to layoff 300 people so that sort of fell threw. Oh well. Remember back in the day when all you had to do was pick up the classified papers and pick one or two. Yes, I am that old.
Have a great day,
SonyaAnn

I lived in a village in the middle of tobacco country so I was guaranteed a job - I could have had several. The hours were long, the job was dirty but I made enough $ to take myself to Europe in highschool and buy my first used car! Ha! Those were the days my friend...

I don't know whether to marvel that you're old enough to remember getting a job that easy...old enough to remember what a help wanted ad was...or old enough to remember what a newspaper was. Our local newspaper is putting out it's last issue this week, after being around for more than 100 years. I think we'll be a seeing a lot more of them go out of business in the near future.

Is a newspaper some kind of vintage Internet thingy?

Jane-I worked 40 hours a week during high school! It paid for my car and food. Those were the days!

SonyaAnn said...

Mark-Yes, smart ass!
Have a great blog break!

Annie-So are you calling me old? Well, its the truth. I even had to get up to change the channel on the tv when I was a kid. No one had a remote, that what kids were for!

All is forgiven! I live in the age when you just had to put up a paper sign at the laundromat that you wanted to clean houses or babysit and you had more work than you could handle!

I love a good quicky! I remember when getting a job was as easy as going in somewhere and applying. Those were the good old days.

LOL! I am that old too! And it seemed jobs were a dime a dozen in "the old days". Nowdays its' a struggle to find anything. In my day to day life, I'm a social worker and I can honestly tell you I've never seen it this bad...
