Hard to have cable if she can't afford a light bill I doubt that anyone would forgo having lights and water but waste their money on these items.

I just don't want her to start going on interviews during WORK HOUR of the new job

LOL. Right!! At the moment I still have everything. My unemployment ran out last week. But bills are coming due and as I can't pay them they will be shut off. I do have my SO's income too but its not that much either and it varies from week to week, month to month. We will pay what we can and let other things go.

Do you think anyone really cares what you want?

And for the record, she never said she'd be going on interviews during work hours. Did you get hit by a bus or something this morning? Your brain seems to be functioning exceptionally poorly today.

lmao...i just laughed so hard I spit my drink out
The job is 8-4 and I can go on interviews after 4. OR I can tell the job, Hey I need to take 2 hours for lunch so I can go to the doctor or tag my car or meet with my lawyer or enroll in school and then go on an interview. They did say they were flexible on that kind of thing since they don't offer time off.

Reading TV's comments followed by the other posters is just sad yet hilarious at the same time. I can't help but laugh.
