On A wire


Guess what? HALF the kitchen floor is now done. Hallelujah, but with reservations. Still half to go and this includes where the fridge and stove go, and a closet and more pipes! Oy, I scared. I have been made an Ultra gopher for tommorrow. I will be hitting Old Navy (that's for me, gotta get b-day ideas), the grocery store, paint store, a restaurant for food and someplace maybe even for dessert. There could be more, I will have to see tommorrow! But I can't wait to get out of the house for awhile! Yay!

I am getting pissed for my sister Sam. She is looking for a job as a phlebotomist and people are turning her down because she doesn't have a year of experience...pray tell, how do you GET the experience if no one is willing to HIRE you?!! She was at the top of her class too! And Tunxis doesn't help with job placement, so it is really worrying her. She is thinking about going back to school to get another degree in something else, but THIS is what she loves!! She loves taking people's blood and enjoyed learning all about it! And Kat has been helping, by looking on the job sites but they all seem to want a year of experience! I don't understand how they can all want that when new Phlebotomists needs someone the GIVE them that year of experience!! I am so pissed for her, she wants to do this.

We watched Bird on a Wire tonight. I love that movie. It is from 1990 and stars Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn, it is hilarious!! "Rick has been given a new identity by the FBI for helping convict a drug dealing FBI agent. Fifteen years later his former fiance recognises him. Rick's FBI 'minder' has been replaced by a corrupt agent who helps the drug dealing FBI agent and his accomplice locate him. There are many subsequent chase scenes as Rick and girlfriend revisit his former haunts." Goldie as the former fiance who assumed her fiance was dead is pissed off when she finds out the love of her life has been alive and well all this time! They fight and bicker and it is just pure enjoyment! This movie is the best and I am so happy I own it finally!! I even found a trailer for it, so you can see why you must see it if you haven't! Mel's role in this reminds me a lot of Riggs from the Lethal Weapon movies, he can kick butt but he is also hilarious and you want to hug him! Sorry haters, I will always love Mel Gibson. Yes I wish he was still happy with his wife, but if they have been separated that long, then it is his right to find love again! So no bashing me or Mel!! He has done some moronic things, but no one is perfect!!

I'm so sorry for Sam!

I know that the job market is very tough right now, and there are probably a lot of very experiences applicants applying for the same jobs.

Sarah said...

i never understood HOW you get the experience. I desperately want to go into Pharmaceutical Sales and have no sales experience...bummer.

Tori_z said...

That's stupid that Sam can't get a job because of lack of experience. As you said, how can she get the experience if nobody will hire her? Daft people!

Glad the floor is half done. Maybe in another week or two it will be finished? ;)

Shauna said...

Oh man sorry about Sam! Yeah about the floor! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! ♥ HUGS ♥

Sheri said...

I don't get how people expect that 1 year or more experience if nobody is willing to hire without it. It is such a load of crap! I'm in that same predicament... it blows!

Amander said...

Yeah, it's always frustrating trying to get experience when you are new to a field. Seems to happen to everyone!

LadyStyx said...

My ex had that problem. Graduated with a master's degree in history education and then had a hard time finding a job because he didn't have any field experience. She may wanna see if the Red Cross will take her on board.

Have you seen What Women Want? That's some funny Mel Gibson too.

Jessica♥ said...

Hopefully she'll find someone that will give her that year of experience. gosh that must be annoying!
