Barb’s recent updates on a social network site, where she is known as up2u:
Another day, another dollar. What a job! You want time to tick by at a glacial pace? Work at the returns counter in any major discount store.
She’s back. Just another 3+ hour lunch break. Just in time to hit me with extra work. If I didn’t need the $, I would be soooo long gone.
But that job at Quest? Should I take it? Paycheck vs. long commute to a dead-end job?
Barb’s recent reviews on electronic store Web sites, where she is known as gadgetchick:
Want to listen to anything on this MP3 player? Forgetaboutit. The controls on the headset are impossible. You can get the same quality on most cell phones. Plus–$20/month? For what? The monthly fee is outrageous. Two words: Stay away.
