    I guess the longest i've been unemployed was about a year, but i was only actively seeking employment for about 3 of those months.

    Ok Falcarius has a confession, depending on how one defines the word "unemployed" he has been unemployed anything up to three years.

    Same here, do they really want Falcarius to tell them how he is academically retarded and keeps dropping out of college? Or how Falcarius spend his average day for the last few years like this?

    Awesome for you.

    I hate working, and only do it when I absolutely have to.

    Not counting times when I was a full-time student, the longest I've gone without working was a year--the last three months of my first pregnancy, and the first nine months after my daughter was born. But I've not had a lot of traditional employment--I was a nanny for a long time, then a childcare provider in my own home, and most recently a freelance writer-editor, also at home. The last time I had a job like most people define a job, I was 17-18 and worked at Toys R Us for 2 months and then a record store for a year.

    I've also had a habit of acting bizarre in the workplace in the past (in a goofy way). It's the one place where I was able to entertain others. Unfortunately, I lost jobs for expressing my off-the-wall ideas. But unfortunately, it's in a conforming work setting where I feel energized doing it.

    And when I wasn't acting off-the-wall, I was cursing people out or slacking off because the work environment was uncomfortable.

    Me too. And I don't have to work, so I've never had a "real" job before



    Uber, I hope you don't put that on your resume

    Ever since I've started working, I've never been unemployed.

    Well, unless you count being unemployed while I was a full-time college student, I've only been unemployed for two months since I was 16. That time *sucked*, and I was full of anxiety. Right now, I'm looking at almost two weeks next month that I'll be unemployed between being a grad student and having a final job interview with a company I really hope to work for.
