C'mon guys, help a cracker out. I've been looking for four fucking months now, and even though some things have come up that looked like sure-deals, they always fall through and my wife is ripping my nuts off almost daily about it (as if I don't already feel stress from it all). I'm living off of school money, and that's barely doing it for me. I'd like to do anything that's not retail, and would actually like to get into bartending, although that seems to be unnecessarily difficult to get into. What the fuck am I doing wrong? I'm really just looking for part-time work, but I'd be open to full-time. My resume is pretty much garbage, I've got like 3-4 retail positions (none past a year), my military work, and my time at an arcade & mini-golf place for 3 years. I've got a good-sized gap now from when I left the military, so I don't know if that looks bad or if it matters much (all I'd have to explain is that I was living overseas, but still, seeing it on paper can't look good initially). What the fuck am I doing wrong? Should I just start making money illegally? I hate this shit! California sucks!
