I’ve been looking for a job for the past 3 weeks.
I’ve been to a handful of interviews and I have driven all over the city looking for a job.
On Tuesday I went to an interview for a job at the UPS. I had to drive all the way to the north end of the city to meet at the distribution warehouse. On my way home from the interview, my car broke down. I could not get the car started no matter how hard I tried. I had to eventually give up and call a tow truck. Thank goodness my best friend is a tow truck driver. He came to pick up my car for free and did not charge me the $150 fee that everyone else has to pay. My buddy took my car to the mechanic and I found out that I needed a brand new serpentine belt plus a couple of other things. The total for the repairs was almost $500. I didn’t know how I was going to pay for the repairs. The mechanic told me that he would keep the car at the shop until I had the money to pay for the repairs. The very next day, I received a telephone call from a marijuana dispensary. The manager of the marijuana dispensaries saw my application and wanted to offer me a job working as a delivery driver. Of course that job was available the day after I had problems with my car. I really wanted to take the delivery job at the marijuana dispensary, so I swallowed my pride and begged my dad to give me the money to repair the car. He agreed to a loan with a 15% interest rate over 12 months.
