My family needs me to get this job. For the first time in my life I can show them that I am somebody! I can prove that Sunday School stuff to be true, that God don’t make junk. Will I find out in enough time?
Finally! Classes are over and the piece of paper is in hand! Time for my final test … time to ace this interview. Big bucks here I come! … What do they mean I ‘lack enough experience?
Yes! I won’t be a-needing money from the old man anymore. I’m going out to get my first job. “Will you hire me?” No way. Did he just say I could scrub the floors? “Yes sir! I’ll work hard for you.” I can’t face Dad without a job.
I can’t believe I’ll have to leave my precious babies with a sitter. Yet we need this money and I am more ‘marketable’ than my husband. I sure hope this job has good benefits. “May I please have an application for your Business Analyst position?”
What a day! Can you believe the variety of people I had to talk to today? Everyone thinks I’m a miracle worker. They think I can pull jobs out of a hat for them. I’m done. I think I’ll go fill out an application for a different career!
The last one was a creative twist to the themes of the others. Liked the internal dialogue in many of them in contrast to what was really going on - especially the kid taking the job he really didn't want to make his dad proud.
