Get a job! Boy, if I had a dime for every time I've been told that or said that to myself or my kids or others here and there, I could be rich today.
Well, maybe not rich, but I'm pretty sure I'd have accumulated enough dimes to at least buy one powerball super lottery ticket for $3.00 anyway!
Finding said jobs though is not -definitely NOT -an easy task, to be sure.
Finding a job that a person can feel confident of being able to adequately perform the duties involved is a job in and of itself right there!
And, the older a person gets, the more difficult it also then becomes to even gain entry into the working world because apparently many employers seem to feel/believe that we older potential workers have lost our staying power, our ability to learn anything new (i.e. technology-wise) and those things, along with appearances too (in some instances), we become seen as unemployable then.
I've dealt with circumstances pertaining to those issues for the past almost 30 years now and let me tell you, there have been plenty of occasions during those years that I wished I could find someone who could help me with some of the problem areas I've encountered in looking for employment.
Someone perhaps even like an employment lawyer in san diego ca.
Okay -granted, perhaps an attorney located that far from where I live is a bit far-fetched -yeah, more than a bit, but boy, there have been lots and lots of occasions over the years where I really do wish I'd had someone, somewhere, who could have given me legal advice on how to show potential employers that they are being unfair, discriminatory very often based on things like sex or age, especially.
One of the reasons mentioned there above -age -is why I decided to return to one of the types of work I'd had in years past, that being an Avon Lady!
Might not be what some people even consider to be "a job" but it is work and often, a lot of it too, and it also something I can do at virtually any age -even being on the verge of turning seventy!
And the nice thing though about this job is that I am virtually my own boss and I do like that!
A little side note here to one of my blogger friends too who commented about really liking a particular product of Avon's -something he felt would be neat to have for Halloween for his grandkids -if you're really interested in that particular item, Budd -you can go to my website through Avon and check out the current brochure and even order it online and it will be shipped directly to your home! Drop me a note on Facebook and I'll give you further details!
