I have a short term memory problem and its cost me six jobs
I was able to work ten years at one company and ten more years at another and six years at another and still three and a half more years at another then I was too old to work. I never gave completely but my short term memory screwed up my education and like I said ability to learn some jobs in a timely fashion. Were it not for the support of my family I would have ended up homeless.
I discovered that a poor short term memory problem is not counted as an excuse to be unemployed. All my jobs were low paying with no status like you would have if you worked in an office ob or whatever.
I posted this so that you would not be too harsh on a person who has no job or is without a home. Maybe they have something wrong with them.
