(Go all the way to the end of this post for some cool, free gifts)
I’m attending a seminar this weekend on the sales process. The trainer is excellent. I’ve attended one of his trainings before and thoroughly enjoyed him. It feels good to get out of the house and do something constructive and motivational. The passive aggressive BF is taking care of dinner, etc. while I’m gone all day (of which he does a wonderful job!) That is the one thing he is willing to do, since actually going out to get a job is not.
I told him about Target and Best Buy both hiring quite a few people for the holidays. In the usual passive aggressive nature, he says ok, but has not been out to apply at either. With Target you have to go into the store and apply on their network. I’m not sure about Best Buy. I told him about a job fair, which he conveniently forgot. I have mentioned the job rehab and opportunities on the Employment Development website for our state, of which he too could have taken the test my son was supposed to take, but of course nothing. I finally asked him the other day if, after his experience at Sears (which he could always go back there and probably get hired right away) he’s decided he doesn’t want to do retail like that. He said no, but when I asked why he hadn’t done anything then to apply for the Christmas season anywhere, I got the usual passive aggressive, hanging of the head, no answer.
My son was supposed to take a test to work for the government yesterday. His almost mother-in-law, who currently works for the DMV signed everybody in her house up, including him. I think that’s great! I’m on his butt every time I see him about going to work, even tho he is living in her house now. I tried to call him last nite when I got home to see how it went, but his phone went straight to voicemail (which sort of ticks me off since I just paid the bill so I would have some way of staying in communication with him. LOL)
Going straight to voicemail (and him not calling me back) means one of 3 things. Either he was on the phone when I called, or he was getting high and didn’t want to talk to me (he knows better), or he didn’t go take the test and doesn’t want to have to admit it to me yet. If he took the test and was an eligable candidate, I don’t know what they plan on doing about the drug testing, which I’m sure is mandatory. I think the girlfriend’s mother is kind of clueless as to what her daughter and my son are into. I’m still not sure what I should do about that, if anything. I know the odds are against them making it out of this together, but both have been doing a lot better and using a lot less since they’ve been seeing each other again. I’m not really sure I want to “rock that boat.”
Being an internet marketer, I get a lot of notifications of “stuff” going on on the internet. A lot of them are free giveaways where a lot of marketers come together, each supplying a free gift, hoping you’ll sign up for their stuff so they can add you to their mailing list. Usually this stuff is all stuff for growing your internet business. Recently I got invited to join a “Self Improvement Giveaway” which is all self improvement items. When you first go to the page, of course they’re hoping you will take them up on whatever they’re trying to sell you, but if you scroll to the bottom, there’s a place for you to sign up and enter for free. There are a lot of neat e-books, audios, etc. in there, so if you’d like to take a look, just click on the link below. Just remember, for any of the free stuff, you’re going to have to give your name and email address. Most require you click on the confirmation link you will get in an email they send you, but then you’re in. You can unsubscribe to any newsletters, etc. any time, so it’s not like you’re stuck, and some of them are actually pretty good. Enjoy =)
I’m throwing one in for Dog Lovers also. Anytime you reach a sales page of any kind, if you’re not interested you can scroll usually to the bottom and get your free gift.
