    Serendipity: Just because someone is a veteran, it doesn’t mean they automaticaly get respect.

    You don’t know the meaning of respect.

    The way you talk to people on here, you don’t deserve any respect. If you’re a veteran you dishonor the service with your attitude.

    Spencir: I just gotta ask. I have seen your posts here and on other sites. Some of your posts are intelligent and have near perfect punctuation and grammar…others are well…..let’s say “strange”. What gives? I believe you may have been asked the same question before,but I never saw you answer it.

    And you are supposed to use a question mark after a question. Why do you always use them like a period ?

    “In the Tank Forever”: U.S. Consumers, Retailers in a “Death Spiral,” Davidowitz Says

    Well judging by the last two days “hostile undertones” which I have missed entirely, I didn’t know whether to post this or not. All our stress levels are at boiling point as some of us have run out of help and the remainder of us will in just a few weeks.
    But if I can’t share this with the people I have listened to, read posts by, shared frustrations and anxiety with, then I may as well fart in the wind.

    ;) I may just do that anyway!!

    Finally, after 20 months of being unemployed, rejected and plain ignored by Employers in my area (Even tried to move away and came back very quickly, because rather the devil you know than the one you don’t!(over 55 and female ) I have FINALLY found a job.

    And it was not through the positions that appear on our Monster, Indeed, Career Builders, etc….sites.

    I know the only way I landed this one was through sheer persistence and networking. Calling everyone I have known in the past, and bugging the S@it out of everyone I know

    Congrats!!!!!! I really am glad to hear one of us found a job. Sorry about the “hostile” stuff. I tend to defend myself.

    I wish you the best.

    I am finding the phrase “the best defense is a good offense” fits there. lol

    JennyB! Congratulations! FINALLY someone here found a job (that we know about—I hope there might have been others), and in Florida after all, proving it’s not an impossible feat!

    (Just curious, any chance you got your pets back? I always felt sad about that, since I’m very attached to my own little crew here.)

    As for networking and trying any possible avenue to find work, it only makes common sense. With it being a pure numbers game at this point, winning the lottery is almost more likely than getting a job through the usual stacked up piles of applications. At least the lottery gives everyone even odds.

    Even the little bits of freelance worked I’ve managed to get that enabled me to stretch out my benefits have come through friends of friends or former associates of some kind.

    Someone posted an article here recently that had some helpful advice about networking, especially taking advantage of the online social networking possibilities; I’ll re-post later if I can find it again.

    But even phone networking, ANY kind of networking, appears to be the only avenue where there’s much hope of being one of the lucky percentage of the working population.

    Thanks for updating us and good luck with the new life!
