Wednesday, 10-17-2012: “Widow” is my new Match dot com profile status. My EX hasn’t kicked the bucket but I figure I can get a few extra dates. But until she does kick the bucket, I’m NEVER getting ahead. She’s garnishing my paycheck to cover back child support. I need a new approach.
Wednesday, 10-31-2012: You got to love Halloween parties where people leave jackets and bags laying around while they take their brats around the neighborhood to stuff their faces. I had a good 30 min to find a briefcase with an ID in it. And I hit the jackpot too! The guy must have just got back from an overseas trip because I found his passport and copy of his f his SSN. Boy, he did the right thing and was prepared for losing his wallet Overseas because it was just what I needed. Finally, I got a break. So I walked over to the officejet and made my own copies. Of course I put the passport and SSN copy where I found them. He’ll never know. It’s not like I want his identity for borrowing money or anything. I just want a little job I can work without my EX sucking the life out of my paycheck!
Monday,11-05-2012: OK so maybe it’s wrong to apply for a job with this other guy’s ID but I can’t take it anymore. She got the house. I live in a one bedroom apartment and can’t afford Sunday Ticket. It’s time to be creative.
Friday, 11-09-2012: I met a guy from an online ad list. His forte? Making fake State IDs. I promised I would not use the SSN card for getting credit. I told him I was just trying to start a part time job with IDs which look real based on the ID copies I made. Man, this guy was a document genius – well worth the money.
Saturday,11-10-2012: Why didn’t I think of moonlighting at a sporting goods job sooner? I get a discount on fishing poles and the EX can’t touch my check. I picked “4” to claim on the W4. That means I get all the money TAX FREE, BABY. This is what I call a Win-Win.
Saturday, 12-15-2012: Gravy Train ends soon. I just received my lay off notice. My dream job is going away at the end of the year. I knew the job was seasonal so it’s All Good. I’ll have to come up with Plan B.
Saturday, December 22-2012: Was talking to another guy at work today. He said he’ll be applying for unemployment and another government program next week. I suppose since my Fake ID Status is now “Unemployed“, my new identity can apply for government benefits. This guy is the best thing that ever happened to me. I changed my match dot com profile to this other guy’s name and the profile Status is now “Single”. My “Morning” period is over. Time to PARTY!
