Cake or Death? uh, no thanks, a Job, please.

So the economy is really sucking right now.
Our sales are far less than what they were last year and the store can't afford as many people to work. So they are cutting hours. HUGELY.
Guess what happens to the little college girl who is working to pay for college stuff?
I shrivel up and die.

I'm so screwed. I've been cut to 1 day next week... some people aren't even scheduled to work. My spider senses are tingling and they're telling me that I might be in trouble.

I need money so bad, I don't know what to do. It's so hard to find another job. I don't want to go back to selling lemonade on the side of the road like back in 3rd grade. I only made about 5 cents and I don't think Verizon will enjoying being paid in lemonade.
What exactly is my job?
I'm the robot that rings up your purchases at your favorite durgstore and cleans up after everyone.
I work pretty damn hard.
But we've already lost a photo guy, a manager, 2 other service clerks... what is going to happen to little old me?

Maybe I won't shrivel up and die. Maybe I'll be cursed to spend the next 5 years living with my parents because I can't afford to move out.

Oh my god. I might as well start putting my down payment on my coffin or at least start chiseling away at my tomb stone,

"Here lies, Jessica

She was

And that's how it'll end because I won't have enough money to pay for the rest of the letters.

So, this brings me to my real topic.

(anything but prostitution/stripping sorry, I'm not that desperate yet)

I've been working as a cashier for about 6 months,
I can easily do math in my head and know how to check if money is fake or real!
Wooo! Isn't that what you look for in a cashier?
Prior to this job, i worked at a theme park as a rides operator, so I know how to work with heavy machinery! And my customer service skills are pretty awesome.
I had to tell people that "Due to the dimensions of the ride, I cannot permit you to ride safely" (Basically, They're too chubby for the ride) and that takes some skills.

And for the appeal to pity...
I'm a full time college student who needs to pay for her books for next semester. I'm a Biology Major who is planning on going to pharmacy school so... I'm a pretty determined person!

Um... I guess that's it?
So if you have a job opening in the Fresno, CA area, let me know.
I love money-- err-- I mean, I love to work.
