I Got Fired :(

Yup. ChaCha permanently terminated my contract because they felt I wasn’t answering questions to the standards they required. To be honest, I deserved it, but I was only getting paid half a fucking cent per question, so I felt their standards were not worth my effort. I’m kind of bummed because that was the only “real” job I’ve ever been able to do with my disability. I would really like to get a real job, because I like having money to spend on Taco Bell, but I have yet to find a job that does not require any physical activity. I can’t do any type of customer service because I’m kind of difficult to understand sometimes. I can’t type fast enough to do transcription. I tried prostitution, but that didn’t work out so well. I wish I had the balls to sit on the street corner and sing songs with a donation jar, because I’d make a killing if I did that. (Funny side note: my friends and I made $132 with a lemonade stand like 3 summers ago because people saw my chair and stopped out of pity.) I’m pretty much out of ideas.

Seriously though, do you have any ideas about how I could make some money/get a job?
