    I answered yes to your very last question on the questionairre. This has to do with being charged for suspicion of DUI. I was actually texting on my phone. I do understand that neither one is acceptable. I will be getting the results of my Blood Alcohol Content test tomorrow. I should definitely be below the legal limit.

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    Sincerely,

    Working with Career Solutions. Can provide competency and apptitude performance worksheets. The worksheets are useful tools to help determine strength and weakness in an applicant, as well as knowledge and drive in a particular field of study or work.
    It is my desire to get on board with a growing company, in a fast paced, demanding and productive work environment. Challenging myself, being accountable, and developing an already great sense of pride in any job available I aspire to help build jobs for future generations, to include my own children. I know work for that work for Amazon, all have encouraged me to join the team.

    God damnit, I forgot to set my alarm, now I’m going to be late for work. I’d honestly like to just stay home and quit, considering how much I fucking hate Amazon. But alas, this country sucks, my generation is set to fail, and I have a child on the way, so work like slave for people who treat me like shit it is. Fuck the world, and go fuck yourself.

    this was on face book for the world to see about Amazon, his employer! Awful!!
