(Sorry you have to read this again)

I've been looking for an after-school/weekend job for about 6 months now. I've been all around Silsden and fair enough, there is nothing. But some places have been rude, which has discouraged me from asking people because I don't want that kind of response.

So there are no shops that need anybody, I'm just hoping that anybody on here may know someone or somewhere. I'll do anything you/they need!

I am 15, and need to start earning money to fund my first guitar/school revision guides/just for myself!

Thank you very much, sorry you've had to put up with me posting again and again.

- Izaak Spencer

So sorry that you have had such a negative response Isakk. It is good to see a youngster showing some initiative, well done you.
Pity that people cannot see that also. Hope you get something soon, good luck.

He's already tried the boat yard, nothing, and a paper round. The problem with Ilkley is he's relying on buses as I work full time myself (I'm his mum) By the time he's paid bus fares it's probably not worth while. And he's restricted to after school and weekends. I understand there's not much out there but there really isn't any need to be rude! A polite "Sorry we don't need anyone" would do.

I've checked around and still nothing, I can't really leave town on a regular basis. I know you shouldnt give up on these things, but I have been everywhere. Anywhere that I e-mailed never replied, I'm not strong speaking on the phone...

Hi
Would you like some one-off work in my garden - digging up weeds!
I would not blame you if you don't want to - it is not a pleasant job.

Hi Izaak
So sorry - I had to get the garden sorted and so I have got a gardener coming tonight to look at it.
Enjoy your search - it's all a learning experience!

the early bird catches the worm, maybe you should try and get used to speaking on the phone, I would have thought it was easier than face to face? the more you do it the easier it gets

I need to be more confident. Many places have phone numbers, but on the phone I just freeze up and don't say anything. I'm really shy when it comes to things like this, which doesn't help. Neither does my friend, who just got given a job, that he doesn't want or like. He likes to rub it in...

hi Izaak
I am reminded of the Morrisey song which has the lines:
'Shyness is nice
But shyness can stop you
From doing all the things in life
You'd like to.'
actually it might have been the Smiths -

Hiya Izaak,lot's of people suffer from shyness and it can take a lot of determination and support from others to overcome it, but's certainly not the worst quality to have as a teenager. The footballer Leighton Baines was so shy as a youngster that he couldn't turn out for his schoolboy team, and look at how successful he is now. You can do it son, little steps, one at a time

Thank you for the encouraging posts, I'll get there someday! I'm just thinking about going all out and phoning every place that may seem they have a job (Steeton Hall, etc). I need something with a constant income, which would be much more useful when you know when money is coming in. Once again, thank you! Ill keep you updated! laugh :D

I know those that know me will not believe this; but I used to be shy!
I found that there are lots of friendly people out there only to willing to give you a chance, join some local organisation/group anything you think you might be interested in, don't sit there waiting for them to come to you (they wont) get out there and J.F.D.I.
Best of luck!
