9781452532448: Unemployed: How Desperation Led me to the Worst Job Ever

Desperate and overwhelmed by the mind-numbing sameness of each day during ten months of unemployment and no interviews, our heroine Laurie slowly unravels as she lowers her employment expectations. Coming apart at the seams from the pounding boredom, she accepts a job she is extremely overqualified for, because she is willing to “take anything at this point.” Watch as Laurie's flawed and negative thinking takes her “anything” job from bad to worse to intolerable. Based on a true story, Unemployed shows how Laurie's family, including a crazy and outspoken mother-in-law, gets what they're thinking about, for better or worse, each and every time. Like a swarming band of locusts, the family brings on nervousness, lack of money, a raucous trip in an inner tube, a whopping case of hemorrhoids, the pursuit of a replacement dog (just in case), the medicinal consumption of gallons of red wine, and some pretty lively dinner conversation. Laurie's thoughts take one shockingly simple turn, and the door to the life of her dreams swings wide open. If you're unemployed, working in a job you hate, have the boss from hell, have a crazy mother-in-law, or you simply like to laugh, you will relate to Unemployed: How Desperation Led Me to the Worst Job Ever.
