I eventually had to get out of the house and saw that the Dollar Tree store was opening in my town. I filled out the application and was hired. And I was glad to get this job, having been unemployed for just a little over a week when I was fired from a nearby restaurant. I couldn't stand the new owner who'd taken over a few months earlier and wanted to get out (Just not that way, of course). Something good came out of that day for me.
