Good news.Items like that are treasure.

I quite like that idea.

Paintball splotch would make a shift from the usual muddy cat paw prints and bird shit, typically pigeons (HOW I HATE YOU BA*T*R* VERMIN)

I'm calm.

Honest.

Someone threw bread into our window last night. We are only on the 2nd floor so not overly difficult and they don't put screens on condo windows here for some reason, odd thing for someone to do though.

I am not sure if I should put ticked or if its just reality being told by job coach people funded by the government that I am not employable in the current job market....

They could have at least thrown some butter in as well

That was an odd thing for a 'job coach' to say. I mean, really? There's not one job in the whole of Vancouver that they think you can do?? Sounds a bit fishy to me.

Wouldn't be the first time I was told I lacked the skills for the current workforce or a variation of that. I send resumes out daily, but I can't get a job if I can get interviews, I get a lot of rejection emails though, Friday is a big day typically for such emails.

Maybe next year will be better.

But to just come out and say that you're not employable is the antithesis of what a job coach is supposed to do. If someone's struggling to find work aren't they supposed to help you address any deficits by referring you to training or other services? Very few people are totally unemployable, and you're not one of them.

Sounds like there should be a vacancy for a job coach coming up, what a prick. Good luck mate.

God, talk about a double whammy. Both are equally horrible. With Wednesday and Thursday a write off, I hope you have a smashing Friday!

Hope it goes well. Upside you have the morning without the icky prep stuff, although budget meeting sounds not so fun. My last gastro exam, I had to take the first dose of the prep at 9am, then the 2nd at 3pm or 4pm so the entire day was shot.
