Well, obviously you're just not desparate enough. If I was without a job and didn't have a wife and kid, i'd take a job wherever I could find a good one.

Back in late 90s early 00s when my son was going to preschool up to third grade when kids bring toys -- he would have gotten in trouble for that, too.

Sometimes schools take the whole "rule" thing to an unbelievable level.

This stupid zero tolerance policy is STUPID. And we only enforce it on CHILDREN, never adults. Idiots.

Actually, much of the recovery is doing well....sorry you aren't employed...are you limited to your area? What is your trade?

The very idea of giving a kindergartner a detention is assinine. They're little kids, forgodssake! If anyone should be cut some slack, it should be a 5 year old.

This should be the last one. We've got a two week shut-down in July, but I'll probably just burn vacation time for that. Don't want to deal with unemployment anymore.

I wouldn't mind relocating, but the problem is a "good" job is hard to come by right now.

That's rough. If I ever meet you IRL, I'll buy you a beer. Maybe two.
People were good to me when I was on unemployment a couple years ago after my company was acquired. Consider it a pay back.

Look down here. We've been relatively immune to economic problems.

Not me.

I used to work very near one person and we would walk at lunch occasionally. I have met another twice.

Thinking about it, there are not that many any more who are actually in Chicago or immediate vicinity.

I assume you've noticed that Sam has been gone for a month or so now.

Makes sense. I just see Redbox as ONE MORE THING I have to *do.*
I don't think I've ever returned a movie on time. I was always paying late fees. One night, my fees were probably $30. I said I'd pay that in full, pay for my rental, and said "add $20 for the charity thing" (they let customers pay for movie/game rentals for the children's hospital), and they took the whole $30 fine off after I offered the $20 donation.

Redbox is too much trouble. DVR...On Demand...Net Flix,*other* online movie downloads... No fuss, no muss, no waiting in line behind trailer trash (sorry, maybe not, but your description puts me in mind of that) to browse movies.
Redbox is awesome and for the right price.

We get redbox only on the weekends, if that. So at a buck a movie, lets say $4-$6 a month.

DVR will not get you movies unless you subscribe to HBO or one of the other premium channels.
On demand?$4 a movie? Hells no.
Netflix? If we get to the point where we are consistently watching enough movies that it becomes cheaper to do that than Redbox, we'll consider it then. I have redbox kiosks near me at 7-11, CVS, walmart, walgreens, publix. 3 of them are outdoors, so I don't even need to stop if it looks like a line. Just continue on to a different location.

So you attribute your ability to fin work to the sitting president and not to your own skills? Perhaps that's part of your problem.
