That makes sense, I'm so sorry you're in such a crappy situation though.

Rant..

I just want a job. I was a bit picky at first and wanted to work at Petsmart or Petco. But now it's just gotten to the point where I am so unbelievably desperate because my bettas need new heaters, filters, tanks, substrate, & decor.
I have applied to about 10 places, same place in multiple locations. I'm just frustrated. The only reason I want a job is because I want to give my bettas better things.

Sushi is going to pass away soon.. not sure how soon, but she's less active everyday because of her tumors, which are growing fast, and I just want to be able to fix her 10 gallon up nice and beautifully before she passes. Her tank decor doesn't look great, and it needs to be better.
On the brightside, my parents are paying me for my grades! $10 an A, $5 a B, $1 a C. I have 4 A's, 2 B's &1 C. So that's $51. School ends May 24th, and I've decided I'm going to spend my money on Sushi. She needs better decor. She deserves better.

I just really hope one of the jobs decides I'm a good fit. I'm just so frustrated & down.

Anti-Rant: I take my driver's test June 6th! Meaning I can spend all the time in Petsmart/Petco I want!(If I pass, which I hope I do!(

FWIW, Sushi doesn't care about decor. If she's in a heated tank and gets regular water changes and good food that's what's important. More than decor I'd bet she'd appreciate frozen food.

I really wish I wasn't, the worst part? My ex seems to be mentally unstable. Depression, explosive anger disorder, and a few others I haven't completely pinpointed yet. Everything can be great and I'll say "hey" and he explodes. I'm still extremely nice to him, I stay as patient as possible but alot of the things he does begs the question of his common sense and basic social skills. I don't know if he just doesn't think things through or it doesn't register

What about a restaurant job? You can make hourly+tips as a server. If you are looking for a summer job, it will be difficult to find one. A lot of places want people who can work longer...

Oh she has tons of good food, 5 different types to be exact. :) Her favorite is brine shrimp & bloodworms! I just wanted to get her some decor that was new & not falling apart. I got her little house when I got her as a baby, so it's so old! I wanted to get her more things she can rest on.

They have this awesome decor at Petsmart. It has a Buddha statue sitting under a tree. The tree top would be great for resting. I wanted to get another tree that matches and some nice tall plants. A moss ball or 2. A brank spankin new heater & filter because the ones I have suck, lol. (going to check out the one you linked in my other thread) :)

I think the hours I'm available to work is what's getting me turned down. My mom works at a school with kids, so when they're out of school, so is she and she will be able to take me whenever. But I could only put in afternoon hours because of her work. I take my drivers test on the 6th, so if I pass, I can work as many hours.

I don't want a summer job, I want a long term. But so many people are applying, my application is like 1 out of hundreds. Also, I tried applying to Applebees to be a waitress(they were the only ones hiring for a waitress job) and I was literally turned down in less than 25 minutes.

Applebees is not only one. There are many more restaurants. Sometimes they have "hiring" sign on the window and not posting any ad online. Even if there is no sign, you can walk in restaurants and ask if they are hiring. If they like you, they will hire you right there. You can always ride a bike to go to work...

(I'm not making excuses , I swear!) The suburb I live in smack dab in the middle of a busy highway, so you can't really go anywhere without going without getting on the highway, and police wont let you ride you bikes on the high way because a lot of people have been getting hit & killed on the highways in my area(I also don't have a bike)

If I pass my driver's test on the 6th, I'll be able to drive on my own and I told my mom if none of these companies called back, that the first thing I would do is go hunting for a job. We have a lot of small companies, and a lot of small petstores who are hopefully willing to hire!

I think my coffee is too sweet. I think there is too much flavouring in it. Also this grande ice coffee I ordered looks like trenta not a grande. I only paid for a grande via mobile order but I am a regular at that Starbucks as they are so close to my job and only place that has coffee early in morning other than McDonald's. Rather have Starbucks than McDonald's.
