sorry to rant, and I know nobady cares, but I have nody to talk to.. I have been driving a truck for many years now and I hate it..

I always wanted to work in guns, so I got really excited when they started to build a Cabela's here.. I sent in many applications, resumes and such, had an interview last week.. So I call the guy today and he tells me I did'nt get the job...

So now I am soo fucking pissed, I really just feel like moving to some kind of compound and drop out of society... I swear it seems like I am allways getting passed over..... What am I doing wrong??????

Don't be too hard on yourself, there is always a reason why these things happen.

You might find out 10 months down the road why you did not want to work there. Keep plugging and keep your attitude up. :smile:

Mike, I would be happy to take a look at your resume and see if I can help you punch it up. If you are interested, send me a PM. Jack

P.S. I agree with Jeff, things happen for a reason. Keep the faith things will work out. You can't keep a good man down!!! Don't forget it.

The longer I live the more I believe, like Jeff & Jack both said, that things happen for a reason. Hang in there Mike, and either something better will be right around the corner, or you'll find out something that will make you glad you didn't get that job.

Mike,

I'm glad to hear your spirits have been lifted somewhat.
Hope things are looking up in the long run.

Mike,

Between the ages of 14 and 22 I had some of the worst times a person can endure, it's a very long story. Needless to say I felt like giving up many times over, but I kept going and today things are good.

Sometimes I think about if I had given up I wouldn't know my 2 children and and my wife either. I don't have a perfect life by any measure, but it's pretty good.

Keep the faith.

Nice to hear you're feeling better. On another note, how was the movie?

Mike, there is an old saying that goes "When one door closes another one opens" . I believe that is true and I believe the right door will eventually open for you. As everyone above said, hang in there and don't give up. The more you endure, the stronger a person you will be. :)

Mike,

Not getting this job may be best after all. Take it from me, making a business out of your hobby carries a pretty high price sometimes. After spending all week listening to all the nut cases, whiners, liars & thieves, the last place you'll want to seen is a gun range, cause they won't leave you to have a good time, the venue just changed. Since I got into the Harley business, my personal riding has dropped sharply, the good news is, I spend a lot more time shooting. Always remember this, the best things come to you when you aren't looking. Good luck.

free and easy

haha all i'm saying is that who wouldnt want to live on a compound somewhere...you get to shoot all day, hunt, pick vegetables and grow tobacco...maybe even conjure up some "shine". You good ol' boys gotta be following me-no? But seriously, I know what youre sayin mike. Its tuff finding a job you like much less getting the money that you deserve. Thats why findin yourself a project to work on- and getting involved with places like gunco.net is great. When the shit in life hits the fan and everyone is making you crazy (and your medication runs out, just kidding!...theres 1 refill left) you got a bunch of guys here to come vent it out to. And most of all LEARN FROM...atleast for me. ok, time to go crawl back under my rock in the newbie lounge.
