This morning on my way into work I saw Jeff Roof at the intersection of Freedom Pkwy NE and Ralph McGill Blvd NE. Jeff is an out of work medical assistant who is desperately in need of a job.
I have been out of work for almost two months. Everywhere I look for a job they want you to apply online and everyday I apply online but I never hear back from anybody so I figured what would it hurt to go and stand in the intersection.
I put this off for a week because of the rain and fog. I finally said this looked like my best day so I thought I would come out and see what happens. I realize its tough for everybody but I need a job before I am out on the street.
I put on elf hat cause I figured it would draw attention-I feel like an idiot but I figured why not?
I even wrote Ellen [Degeneras] and asked her for help. I never heard back from her but mama always said it never hurt to ask, what do I have to lose?
One of the reasons I got out of real estate last year is because I didnt have any health insurance so I figured if I got into the medical field at least I wouldnt have to worry about it but now I dont have any health insurance.
The main thing I am hoping for is someone will offer me an opportunity, thats all I am looking for.
I have been out here for about an hour and nobody has offered me a job but a number of people have rolled down their windows and said good luck Jeff. If the weather is good I will be out here again tomorrow.

He didn't ask for any of this. She took it upon herself to start this…
Not a huge fan of the ankle cuff sneakers that Serena (and KD) are wearing…
Kind of strange that some random lady started a GoFundMe for that kid. I'm curious…
Can Tim Lee get any more pitiful?
Are my nards going to get irradiated?
