I'm so sad. I was just asking for advice about this job yesterday, but I was optimistic about it. But I just got a call from my boss. He said he just talked to one of his former employees. She left the job in September to join the Peace Corps, and long story short she hates it, and she wants to come back. I was supposed to be her replacement but because she worked there for three years and she already knows the job, he is re-hiring her and I'm out in the cold with no warning.

I'm so upset, I can't stop crying. This job was my only break after months of applying to places. I need the money so bad. My relationship with my boyfriend is disintegrating because we are so poor that I am living with my family and he is living with his, because we can't afford an apartment. We also can't afford a car, and he lives on the other side of the state so we barely see each other.

This job would have meant the money to fix all of that, and have some left over to help my mother, who is also just barely hanging on financially.

I am just broken right now :( I tried so hard, I always try so hard and I just can't get a leg up, ever. I wouldn't normally ask this but please if anyone knows of someone hiring in central Ohio that might be able to use me, could you let me know? I can't wait three more months to find a job, I don't have that kind of time.
