why are all the available jobs in shitty bottom feeder industries?

seriously, job postings read like a fucking who's who of the most disreputable industries and organizations America has ever spawned:

check cashers / pay day loaners

pharma sales
private colleges
gentleman's clubs
"home warranty of America" (cause that sounds like it's not taking advantage of anyone)

or this, which is possibly the saddest fucking thing i've ever seen:
We are looking for an ambitious and experienced eBay seller to start an eBay store for Value Pawn.  Hours and pay will be discussed during interview.  Spelling is very important in the use of communicating with customers.
we are all broke and doomed.

still more bitter

well mes pauvres, it has been too long and i owe you an explanation.

you see i had a job:  one golden shining moment (well, six months) of private sector employment.  i was happy.  things were looking up.  regular pay for regular work was beginning to seem a habit.  it was my field and i was good.

clearly, this could not stand.  the world does not have enough foul mouthed employer postings.  and as it is never my style to do things half way, MY lay-off came out of the blue at 8:40 on a monday morning with exactly no notice and $200 in compensation.

(in fairness, we do understand this is how today's professional firms operate when they hire professionals with a mortgage and over two decade's experience.)

so i am very sorry to be away so long but:  WE ARE BACK BITCHES AND MORE BITTER THAN EVER!!

also, here is an employment ad i found with some awkward looking actors posing in a bare room with a beige area rug and a white radiator.  i'm pretty sure that one dude is wearing a 'shirkette' and that no one is getting a fucking bonus.
