You're already a leviathan. How much more growing can you do?!

Seriously though, the computer sector of the market was supposed to be doing better for employment than various others (though bio-tech is much better). So you ought to have some reasonable hope of getting another tech support type of job. Have people given up on even attempting debt-collection these days?
Jonathan Andrew Sheen
leviathan0999 at 2009-10-04 13:18 (UTC) (Link)
LOL! Thanks for that.

It wasn't a downsizing or layoff, debt collection is still a growing field in banking.

You seem to be reading me a good bit lately, so I've gone ahead and friended you. You're not in my "smutty fic" filter, but that can be changed if you like.

Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry! {{HUGS!}}

I'm the unofficial personal IT person in my department (as in, "Now, I want to get rid of all these funny looking characters that showed up when I pasted this list from Excel to Word--how do I do that?", it's kind of like being the one-eyed woman in the land of the blind). If I had money, I would hire you to help my friends with their problems, the ones they're too intimidated to ask our IT department about, because you wouldn't make them feel stupid.

I have been known to make some feel stupid-- You know, if they're rally asking for it.
