Ok I dont normally bitch and moan about "non " weight loss issues on here . But this has my ass so chapped ( That's a Texas saying by the way ) that I have got to say this.
Ok so its not secret DH and I are struggling financially . I have been trying to find a job to help out with that for a few months now . I cant find one .
I have over 10 yrs of health care experience as a CA , I am not a CNA Certified Nurses Assistant I am a Clinical Assistant. HOWEVER I have 10 YEARS experience and have more experience and clinical hands on experience than most CNA's dream of. That's not being cocky that's just fact. I use to work with an AWESOME bunch of nurses who taught me everything !
So anyway . Im looking for jobs. I find one sounds GREAT , Perfect, everything looks great WHAM... " MUST SPEAK SPANISH " NOT prefer for you to speak Spanish" MUST ! WTF
(NOW dont write me and tell me im racist or some shit like that ) Do I live in the US ? Last i checked I spoke English and if you did not understand we would TRY TO accomadate you .
NOT ONLY THAT I live in TEXAS where MOST people speak Spanish Anyway , So chances ARE SOMEONE somewhere around WILL Speak spanish anyway but to REQUIRE it for a position is PURE DO HORSE SHIT !!!!

IM FURIOUS !!! SO I NOW cant get a job cause im a ENGLISH SPEAKING WHITE GIRL ?
WTF ? Im not saying its anyone BUT The people who are writing these jobs out . What are they THINKING !!!
AGAIN Im not racist, SO if you think i am and write to me about it DONT Cause i'll tell you this right now SCREW OFF !! LOL Seriously What is this about ???? I am in Just that kind of mood. And NO MY hAPPY pills have not kicked in !!


  1. How stupid!!!!!

    Fingers crossed something comes up soon for you!


  2. Thanks Bel , I feel like a horrible person complaining about this , but Its so frustrating . Why do i HAVE to speak Spanish to get a job in this town, country ? I Just do not think its right , I would not expect to go to Italy and expect people there to speak English everywhere i went ?

  3. I'm with you 100%!! My husband and I were watching a show the other night which is about border patrol agents. (love this stuff as I am a criminal justice major) anyways... they detained several "non-speaking" people for trying to smuggle something into the US and could not prosecute them b/c they didn't understand the agents "english" when asked if they were carrying anything. My take... Get the .... out of our country if you can't speak or understand us! I was so pissed.. and it was over a tv show.... crazy!!

  4. Hi Mindy,

    I'm in Southern California and it's the same way. Quite frustrating especially when jobs are so hard to come by these days. Good luck, hope you find something soon.
