  1. My New Use for the Phone Book

    July 26, 2012 by Lady Unemployed

    No, I know what you’re thinking. I won’t be using it for this purpose:

    Phone book as toilet paper anyone? Anyone?

    I’ve considered it, though, when money is tight, but the whole newsprint thing stops me.


    This week I’ve gotten into the panic mode thing that causes me to feel like this:


    This isn’t me. But this is how I’m feeling.

    And when I’m in that mood, I need to do something productive very quick. So, I grabbed the first thing in site.

    Yes, the phone book.

    People, we under estimate the phone book. It serves great many purposes besides being a door stop or bird cage liner.

    I started with the letter “A,” flipped to “C” for “Computer – Software,” and then to “E” for “Education.” I plan on going back to the letter “B” this weekend. What I do is Google each company listed and find out if they have a website. If they have website, I look for a “jobs”, or “careers” tab and I find out if they have any openings. The next stage in this process is sending them an email with an employment inquiry. I may actually call these places if I get really desperate.

    So, you see? There we have it. I am being very resourceful, aren’t I?

    The fascinating lives of the broke and unemployed continues next week…tune in!
