My work still has yet to pay me my full paycheck due to an accounting error (we're talking the majority of my paycheck) even though they went out on the 30th. Now I love my job, and I get that it is a small, understaffed organization but this is fucking ridiculous. I gotta pay bills. And buy beer.
My girlfriend is having a really hard time finding a job and she's getting pretty depressed about it. Nothing I can say or do helps her at all and it really sucks to see her feeling like that. She's having 1-2 interviews per week and every time she finds out she didn't get the job she goes into this deep hole of self doubt and bad feelings. I don't have any money so I can't go out and treat her to something or try to cheer her up so I just sit here feeling bad that I can't help.

Job hunting sucks man. Best advice I can offer is that interviewers are going to pick up on her uncertainty and self doubt so she needs to go into these things 100% believing she is the best candidate for the position and they will hopefully find themselves agreeing with her. Best of luck to your lady.
She's very put together and professional in interviews, she's just been getting unlucky with the selections. I definitely won't get mad at someone for offering advice though, what else would I expect from a forum like this? It's just nice to have people to talk to about problems instead of letting it fester. I know she'll find something sooner or later, I just hope it's sooner rather than later.

My girlfriend had a similar experience a year and a half ago. It was awful and I felt helpless. Nothing worse than that uncertainty, especially when you're in a position where you HAVE to work at some point.
I know I'm going to be going through the same thing sometime in the next few years. My girlfriend and I adopted a 10-11 year old dog last year and while she's still healthy and spry, dogs only have so much time. Better to give them a good life when they're still doing well and be happy that they got to live with people they loved.
