  1. My Snobbish Decline to Someone Just Trying to Be Nice

    May 16, 2016 by Lady Unemployed

    I might be overthinking this whole thing. But to give you some background, I’ve gotten very strict about being gluten-free and unless I can assess the ingredients to a food item, I’m trying to be better about declining this. Not so easy at a job that has an onslaught of treats and birthdays coming in.  Also, add to this, I’m trying to stay away from artificial dyes too.

    Fun times right?

    So on my way to get fruit, I noticed the front desk person talking about a delivery for my department. Someone said, yup! This goes to this department. Being nice, I said, “Hey, I can take it!” So I did…

  2. Why Do Lunch Issues Make You Feel Like a Kid?

    May 9, 2016 by Lady Unemployed

    Here’s my random thought of the day…why do lunch issues make you feel like a kid all over again? On my bus into work this morning, my lunch started to leak. My container of very healthy peas and potatoes covered in balsamic vinegar and seasoned salt started leaking which got onto my lunch bag which I was holding. Now I smell like dinner.

    Things like this take me back to the days of lunch tables and desperately not wanting to be the kid with the smelly tuna or sticky jelly that got everywhere.

  3. My Random Post [An Update from Lady Unemployed]

    May 4, 2016 by Lady Unemployed

    So it’s been a while since I’ve posted. How have you all been? It’s been a long time since I’ve had much activity on this blog, and to be honest, I thought maybe for a while it would grow to be a place where people can talk about their work woes and their unemployment stories. This is definitely the reason I started this blog.

    But why continue it? I have a feeling I’ve lost the handful of dedicated readers I did use to have – I don’t take it personally though.

  4. 10 Things That Cross My Mind If I’m Awake at 4 am

    December 25, 2014 by Lady Unemployed

    bird-40910_1280On Christmas Day, I woke up at 4 am, very alert, and after having just gone to bed at around 1 am, I thought it would be a good idea to put the coffee on and just go with it. Will this be a terrible idea around 6 pm today? Well, we’ll see!

    And I made a list of a few of the things that crossed my mind –

    1) “It’s 3 am and I must be lonely.” 

    I always think of this song if I’m up early at an ungodly hour. Every time. So if you’re awake right now too, here’s the song for you –

  5. I Really Hate When People Go Poop at Work

    March 26, 2014 by Lady Unemployed

    First, let’s set the scenario.

    At my job they only have single toilet bathrooms. You know, it’s the type of bathroom where you walk in and you close and lock the door behind you and you have the toilet and sink and all the other bathroom stuff. So, it’s sort of like at home ­ you don’t have any nearby stalls around you and it’s more like a large closet­sized bathroom space.

    Also, I’m on the top floor (the third floor) of my building and there is only one other women’s only bathroom in the whole building, then one unisex bathroom, and two men’s bathrooms. This is for a company of about 100 people (yes, this also means you have to time your bathroom trips very carefully and don’t wait until you have to go really bad).

  6. Saturday Night Confessions – What’s On Your Mind?

    February 23, 2013 by Lady Unemployed


    Last weekend, I uncovered a new and fun weekly activity to bring about some of your most interesting stories – confessions.

    Originally, I made it about your employment (and unemployment) stories – and it can be about that too – but I want to open up the gates and let you confess whatever you may please.

    So, with a couple of wine glasses down, here’s my confession of the evening – a guy that I liked while I was a teenager is still on my mind on a fairly regular basis. We never even went out. (And yes, I’ve looked him up on Facebook, and he’s married with kids).

  7. My Newest Feature – Your Employment (And Unemployment) Confessions

    February 16, 2013 by Lady Unemployed

    I have added a feature to my blog that I hope can bring about some new interest and fascinating reads.

    People seem to love confessions. All kinds  – the good, the bad, the ugly. Although to be honest, you never hear about work place or job search confessions. What do we really do when we don’t think our coworkers or unemployment office isn’t looking?

    Well, that’s where I come in. I want to hear about your confessions – those little (or big) wrong doings that you feel a little guilty about to this day. Big or small – I want to know. I can promise one thing – I will publish your story as anonymous as I can make it.
