Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My girlfriend is very close to being completely unemployed, through no direct fault of her own. Basically, she was tired of her current position (loss mitigation in a mortgage company). She found a position related to her current job but in her field of study (psychology) and applied.
She got an application, filled in her stuff, then faxed it back. Within the day, they offered her the position without even an interview. She took her drug test this morning and handed in her 2 weeks notice to her manager.
However, now they've come back and said "Uh-oh - we were sent the wrong application, and the position you wanted is filled." They then said "Oh, but here's this other position we have, it pays $5 less, but is available"
Basically, it's like a bait-and-switch, but with a job. My girlfriend has already taken her exit interview for her current job, even. What the hell? What can we do? We're in North Texas.
