Default My last hope

...is working 78 miles away in Oklahoma...yea this is going to suck. Working a 9:30am to 9pm shift driving 1hr 20min to and 1hr 20min from. I'm not excisted about it. Extensive miles on my car...and I am NOT moving farther north. Where I live is my home town...I don't feel like leaving. So I have to choose:

1) live in my car homeless
2) work 50+ hours a week in oklahoma--and lose $300-$400 in freaking gay ass state taxes

Gee what a wonderful set of choices huh? <img src=smilies/puke.gif>

What about both? Crash in your car a couple of days a week in the parking lot where you work, and go home the others. Save on gas and time....just have to find a shower somewhere.

what the hell? a job 78 miles away cannot be the only job you can get. the gas prices alone will be astronomical and SO not worth it. maybe i'm missing something.

IceWolf has a good point, or maybe see if you have a buddy that lives there, and stay with him/her 2 or 3 nights a week. Let them know that (if you can afford it) you would like to pay at least some amount of rent (say $100 a month or so) and maybe things will pick up.

Ugh, and I think driving 40 minutes away is bad. I probably spent a half of days pay on gas every week this summer. I'd tell you to carpool, but I don't think you've got people nearbye doing the same deal. If the job was really necessary, I'd either move- or I wouldn't take the job. However, if you need it-- you may have to buckle down and make something work.

Job market sucks here in Ohio, too. I don't particularly enjoy my summer job, but I know it pays for school so I work it hard. Hopefully they'll give you decent hours and pay... just work your ass off and show them your work ethic can't be replaced.

This is why I refuse to travel anymore than 10 minutes to my crappy job. It only takes me 3 to get there. Now, once I get the kind of good work I deserve, then I won't mind making the longer trips.
