Where are my hip boots?

I’ve been looking for a job probably 12 hours a day ever since early July, but most of the time I have been knee deep in scams and cons, only to find a few genuine offers. I read somewhere the ratio of scams to real jobs is about 30:1. I don’t think it’s that good — it’s more like 100:1.

All I want is a real job transcribing digital files at home and returning the finished product via email or some sort of upload. I know there are jobs of this sort out there. I used to do it myself, before my last job.  I guess there are a lot of unemployed or underemployed men and women out there trying to do the same thing, because the competition is fierce.

But the economy is doing so well and unemployment is way down…..NOT!
