I agree.

If I was in her position, I **** sure wouldn't be posting it online. It's sad really and I do feel for her a little bit.

I've learned, you never post things on a dog forum that you don't want opinions or judged on.

ETA- I have a smart phone, unlimited everything and only pay $40 per month. If I were you, I'd get a cheap throw away pay as ypu go phone. Hell, my car insurance isn't even $80 and I have full coverage.

Totally off topic.... but out of curiosity what phone company do you use??? My husband and I pay about $175 a month for both of our phones together and I'm shopping around for better deals so we can drop our cost down a little.

alrighty guys, carry on...

In Canada, FIDO offers $57 unlimited nationwide calling, texting/MMS and 2GB of data which is enough for who constantly have wifi access at work or home. And there are small companies coming out like WIND and MOBILICITY with unlimited everything for less than 50 dollars. Other providers are slowly offering competitive phone plans as well.

And like I said, if I am jobless, i would not be spending that fortune with my phone. I'd find the cheapest deal around. Or Pay as you go. Or better yet, NO CELFONE AT ALL until I find me a job.

I dont know about the US phone carriers. But I'm sure they are far better than their canadian counterpart.

And STEPHY is in Canada. Just saying.

For many people, myself included, a cell is the only phone we have. In order to get a job you need a phone number to be reachable by prospective employers. So I personally would say a phone is essential to getting a job.
Doesn't justify the $80/mo though since we have other Canadian members who have found better deals.

I have to say keep in mind with changing carriers it usually takes TIME to switch numbers and I'm sure its her CURRENT number on job applications.

ETA: The last thing you want to do during holiday hiring is miss the first call (not call back that day) because they usually go on to the next person if its retail.

Food for thought, some carriers force you to pay a couple hundred bucks to cancel a contract if you signed on for a year or more. I have no idea if they do that in Canada, but I had to suck up a bigger than ideal monthly bill temporarily until I found a new job because I couldn't afford to cancel it.
