So in an attempt to make some extra cash and feed all my little
One job I accepted was at my local grocery store. They will pay me $20 to shop for food. I won't get paid till next month (on pay pal) but I have to get some things anyway. So in essence they are reimbursing me for my food. Times have changed. They used to pay you a fee and then a reimbursement up to a certain amount. It will take about an hour. I look at it this way - I am exercising my brain.
Then I did a dumb thing and accepted a K-Mart shop. This one only pays $5. A quickie but I still have to remember names. This one reimburses me and gives me a fee. I accepted this one, to refresh myself. I haven't done a mystery shop since Dec 2011 when I did a IKEA shop and it just about did me in. I completed it but it took me so long, then I had to do the report which I found confusing. I did get $95 for it but it was hard. Next time, the Husband said he would go with me and together our short-term memories should come up with something.
The other day I applied for some real jobs online - no one is hiring or if they are, they don't want some old lady. You practically have to beg and even that gets you nowhere. That is when I start to feel desperate. I babysat for my little girls the other evening - that was a nice diversion. Made some cash. It's all gone now. My car got it.
The thing is, I AM A TALENTED PERSON. I AM CREATIVE. Why won't someone pay me for it? Oh, and the Husband asked me if I would be the webmaster for the VFW. I am self-taught - so I might do that. It's unpaid but I could list it on my resume.
I wish I could get a paid disability for being a die-hard introvert. (just kidding) Or am I??
It sucks getting old...no one thinks you can do anything.
And don't believe it, when they tell you, they don't discriminate against the older worker - because THEY DO.
