A Day of Rest...

Am I selfish? I'm not sure yet, but yesterday it seemed like there was one task after another to complete. It started out in home, isn't there always something to do in the house? I thought so... I ended up dropping Don off at work so I could use the car. Then I went off to CarMax...no my car is fine...it was job interview day.

I know what you are thinking: "Why are you still interviewing when you just took a drug test for Marriott?!" After the third hour I was thinking the same thing. Yes...I said third hour. I arrived at 3:15 and didn't get back into my car until 6:31pm. I don't know if this procedure was designed to weed out applicants because by the last interview I was ready to throw up the white flag and surrender. The good thing to know is that others will be subjected to the same torture as me. If they broke down worse than me...a seasoned veteran of the interview circuit, then I had a better chance. Those young girls don't know who they are dealing with!!! Mwahaha!!! Oh but that's getting off track isn't it?

Needless to say I nearly lost it in one interview. Many things have changed since 19 years ago when I did my last interview. As I was talking to one manager...pretty close to 2 1/2 hours into the process he began to pepper me with questions on honesty and stealing from the companies I worked for. He asked: "Would you ever steal from a company you worked for?" Now, in my defense I'd already answered 12 questions on the same subject and apparently this was the one that broke the camel's back. The words crossed my lips before I could bite my tongue. "H-E double hockey sticks No" I replied. Unfortunately, I didn't spell it out. The other gentleman sitting in on the interview began laughing as I said it. More than likely the shock on my face was where the laughter came from. I apologized and asked him not to write it, but he did. In big letters. Why does my mouth act before I can control it?! He thought it was the greatest answer ever. Insert sigh here!

Well, we shall see how this all turns out...won't we?
