What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

I’m back ….

Sorry I was away from the blog for a while.

Awhile being, oh, the month of September.

I was somewhat busy and not thinking about unemployment for a while.  Sure, I was job hunting (and once again not getting the jobs that I’d most recently applied for).

I’m still doing volunteer work, still active in Toastmasters. And, at the suggestion of a few teacher friends of mine,  I’ve started substitute teaching for extra money and the work experience (three assignments so far).

What else can I tell you? Oh, on Wednesday, I discovered the company which made my car will no longer exist by next year.  😦  This is not only sad news for we loyal Saturn owners, but worse news for Saturn dealers and their employees. Our cars may be orphaned, but they lose their businesses and/or their jobs.

And I had jury duty in my local district court Thursday morning. Which consisted mainly of sitting around the courtroom(s) with 70 other people waiting for hours for the jury selection to start, and then seeing if I would be one of the few people selected for the one case for the day. I wasn’t selected, so I was excused after — and will be paid for — a half-day’s  jury service.
