Passed Over on Chanukah (Oy, Chanukah)

So I show up this morning at my usual temp. job and discover a new person working in the job that I had hoped would become mine. In other words, I’ve been passed over for the same permanent position three times in the past year and a half. My boss sure has a way with Chanukah gelt.

I’ve been looking for a permanent position ever since I earned a certificate in word processing in January 1997. Unfortunately, there’s no market, especially in this rotten economy, for women over 40, unless you know someone (which, judging by this new employee’s abysmal computer skills, is probably how she got “my” job). Maybe that accounts for some of my cynicism.

Sorry to hear about the job. Hope prospects improve for you. I hope the rest of your Hannukah gets better, as Hillel holds, you light more candles as the holiday goes on because we want to increase holiness as time goes on. Hope it works for you.(Shammai says you light 8 the first night and then decrease. Obviously things were decided in Hillel's favor)

Happy Hannukah

I feel for you. What a disappointment and sounds unfair. Stay strong. Your time will come.
