I had been unemployed for a year and a month. 3 weeks ago after I really buckled down and finally started getting interviews, I got hired at a bed and breakfast. Now I'm a housekeeper It's definitely a good job for me. Not too far from the house, I can listen to my mp3 player while I work, I don't have to wear tucked in shirts (I hate tucked in shirts!!!) oh yeah and they pay me I'm so happy. Things between the bf and I were getting very strained with him being the only bacon bringer, not to mention I was depressed at never being able to afford the things I need. I also get tips, and a word of wisdom: when you stay somewhere, your housekeeper does a lot more than you see or think they do for you. Like with any service type position, you should always leave a tip! Even if it's just a few bucks, it's very cool to walk into the room and see some appreciation. In the past I always only left a tip if I asked for something, but now I see how wrong that was, there's a lot that goes into making a room presentable for people to stay there.
