Too strange to be (or not be) real

I went to a temp agency today and although the lady seemed a little rude, I came out a little wiser. I put my self in her place, listened to what I had to say and broke out in tears. Thankfully I was in my car already.

If I was hiring, I wouldn't hire someone with my CA job history. It just sounds completely outrageous.

1st job, through a temp agency was with an attorney who stopped paying his bill - although he did offer to pay me under the table instead of paying the temp agency. I was there three months.

SO, the agency placed me permanently at one of their largest customers where I became the office manager. (oh how I loved that job) 10 months later... they end up closing the doors and filing for bankruptcy.

I FINALLY get a job about 5 months later which lasts 6 weeks before the owner closes the company.

I find a job again at an autobody shop that was going good (although paid crappy and was mind-numbing) and stayed for 2 months.

I left for this GREAT opportunity that paid amazingly and was there 3 weeks - a company being investigated for bribing government employees and fraudulently billing government credit cards. (the owner is being arrested this week... that's why I didn't go back. I don't want to be there when the fed's come in.)

If I hadn't lived it, I would never believe it. I'm just so frustrated. I keep trying and trying. I've never been fired, I'm a great employee. Want to know how fetching desperate I am? I'm going to apply for waitressing jobs. I haven't done that since I put myself through school (10 years ago). At least they won't close tomorrow.
