I didn't think about this when I took this job.
Almost 12 years I ago I quit working and became a stay-at-home....you know that nice cushy job where you can wear whatever you want, take care of mostly ungrateful kids who think your a maid, cook, problem answer-er, miracle worker and over all best job EVER. So, I knew that someday I'd go back to work and it wasn't until this week when I decided that now would be a good time, that I realized that I have not worked in 12 years....12 YEARS!!!! Do you know what that looks like on a resume and job application??? I do now.... I had to warn my friends that I had put their names down for references since I would die of shock if any of my bosses were still working at my former jobs. YIKES!!!! Luckily for me, the main needs of the job are: Must be 18(barely passed that one ...shut up!), pass a criminal history check (thankfully that bank robber job never came through for me) and a valid Oregon drivers license. ::crossing fingers I get it::....sigh....only feeling slightly pathetic...
