Jul 9th 2009 7:40PM Most were really funny. However, with this one I wonder what is going on: "[A] guy said he did not have a mailing address, as he was living in a gypsy camp at the airport." Was he homeless and trying to get work? I mean in those situations, from what I know, how do you get an address? This is particularly the case if you don't have a nest egg or family to fall back on.
I wonder because I've just moved back to the States after living abroad for years. I DON'T HAVE A RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS. Also, I'm an only child and my parents have passed away. I don't have family to lean on. I have friends, but I'm feeling pretty guilty having to lean on them so hard. This economy isn't giving me much of a choice as it just sucks and HR people are as stupid as ever. (Yes, I'm getting very frustrated.)
I do have a mailing address through a mail handling service, but it's not where I'm seeking work. I chose the company because they've been around for years, and I wanted a company that wouldn't loose my mail. Now I've been reduced to using the addresses of friends. That's bloody frustrating because an HR person should evaluate applications based on skills and qualifications. I know where the jobs are that I'm applying for. As long as I can get there, there shouldn't be an issue. PEOPLE MOVE ON THEIR OWN DIME ALL THE TIME! It's just frustrating to deal with stuff like this in a tight economy.
Anyway, ...rant off..., but I do hope this guy wasn't trying to get his life back on track.
Jun 12th 2009 2:47PM I'm glad someone figured this out! I stopped the madness simply by traveling with two wheeled bags: an upright 360 and a bag that I have to tip and roll. However, being able to hook all my bags to one would be great. When I'm traveling with my cat this set would make things so very easy.
