I did when I was in high school. First day of a landscaping job. Started at 6am and was supposed to work until 3pm. Then someone called and said we had to go to this bank because the guy was behind. We had to plant some kind of small shrubs on this incline, and I didn't know what I was doing. He scr...

Any experience using job recruiters/hunters? - StringedInstruments

It's good to continue exposing the corruption but the voters no longer care, the Democratic Party is cooperative, and the FBI isn't going to recommend charges.
