Since graduating high school in 2011, I have been unsuccessful in my search for employment. Tons of applications have resulted in only a handful of interviews. My other problem is that my father often asks me if I have looked for work, and will go so far as to search online for me! Even worse is that he will read off ads for jobs that I am clearly not qualified for. His latest hair-brained scheme (which I refused to go along with) was having my mother drag me to every store in the mall to put in applications, completely ignoring the fact that many large companies no longer provide paper applications. And when I need my medication refilled every month, medication which I have offered to quit taking to save him money, he'll say sarcastically, ''Have you cashed your paycheck?" It makes my blood boil. It's like he thinks I don't want to work, and feels a need to rub my unemployment in my face.
No matter how much I try to explain it, he doesn't understand that things today are not like they were in the 80's when his first job was handed to him. He doesn't understand that there a few jobs where we live.
So is there a way to get him to stop nagging me, or a way to handle it?
