That’s an awesome story and I know exactly what you mean. Thou shall not poop in the camper It seems like the system is set up to lie or die but you’re proof of how having integrity pays. Thank you for sharing this!
Thou shall not poop in the camper shirt
Had I lied to get a job sooner, I would have probably gotten a job in Springfield (much shittier place than where I have been blessed to be now). I imagine I would have ended up working for someone that I would have hated working for, losing more of myself, instead of making any gains. But instead, I have my own apartment, which I paid for myself. I have a job I am happy with, Thou shall not poop in the camper and the wheels are turning in the right direction. You know, now I’m all thinkin about how even the smallest choices – like honesty during an interview – can have the most impact on your future. Thanks for giving me some food for thought
reading this definetly inspires me not to give up even during hard times. ive been unemployed for 1 year after being laid off because i was told i should have a marketing degree for the job. i studied film and racked up 30k in debts and im focusing on my film passions.. trying to build a company from 0 zero dollars. the world is tough but like Cyntia Allen story persistence and perseverance is key. My first job as a waitress. I applied everywhere and they kept telling me that without experience, I was not eligible to be hired. I finally lied and got hired at a Pizza Hut as a bus girl. The first time they asked me if I could handle it, after the wait staff left early, and I said sure, I handled a couple of tables at a time. Well, before I knew it, the dining room was FULL, and I failed greatly! People could tell, and were throwing napkins at me, and leaving me nickels as tips, cuz I sucked. My foot was already in the door, so I didn’t get fired. I was lucky. After that, I learned gradually, until I got much better. After a while a full dining room was nothing for me. It was scary, but that lie got me the job.
