What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

On the road again

I’m writing to you using the free wireless Internet connection at the Lake Forest, Illinois Oasis along the eastbound Tri-State Tollway (otherwise known as I-94). My GPS says I can make it back home tonight — but I’m tired and I don’t think I’m up to driving five more hours. Even with breaks for gas, food and other rests (if you know what I mean by “other rests,” and I think you do).

Some observations on my trip:

  • The test went well. They didn’t ask a single question about the categories of the Dewey Decimal System, despite my worries and cramming. But they did ask about Dewey Decimal numbers. There’s a difference. Thanks, everyone, for all your good wishes on Facebook and all your thoughts and prayers. 😉
  • If I don’t get this job, I should become a travel agent for librarians. I have a talent for finding and booking hotels located very near major libraries.
  • Speaking of hotels, sometimes it’s nice to splurge (or use Hotwire.com) and stay in a pretty good one. Especially the night before you do something pretty important. But tonight, if I don’t go all the way home, I’ll just look for some motel to lay my head.
  • To my local public library: I appreciated using your Librarian Civil Service Test manual. It helped give me an idea of what to expect today. However, the manual was from 1988. It needs weeding.

Well, I ought to get going. It’s nearly 5 p.m. here. I’m hungry, and I’m probably heading straight into rush hour traffic in Chicago.

See you back home.
