Shit! Shit! Shit!

I found an ad in a local paper here.  A neighbourhood, community, kind of rag.  I check them, as well as the smaller city papers because, hey.  You never know, right? There could be a job lurking in their wee Classifieds Sections.  Well, in my neighbourhood paper, there actually was one.

Mind you, I had no clue about it.  What it paid, entailed…blah, blah, blah…  Still, definitely worth a shot as the description didn’t list any sorts of skills that I didn’t have? Not to mention, it was really casual.  Meaning, just come by, ask for this person…  Okay, great.  None of this complicated bullshit of submitting cover letters, resumes–just drop in, anytime!

So today, I get up, take a shower, get all business-suited and fancy.  Since it seemed so casual, I “didn’t do my hair.”  I just left it down whereas no, it looks sort of curly but certainly not a mess and quite alright for working at any kind of job where people would “see me.” *rolls eyes*

I kind of miscalculated this distance and it was many, many blocks away from where I lived.  Still, it wasn’t like I had to walk across the city! I finally get there and I ask for the woman.  She told me that the job was already filled.  Damn.  Oh, well.

However, as I was leaving, this girl overheard the conversation and said, rather cheerfully I might add:

“Oh, that’s why I was just here! I got the job!”

I simply smiled and said, “Congratulations!”


Again, I didn’t know anything about the job but at least it would have been an interview?

*PA heads off to send out more cover letters and more resumes…*

I’m not quite sure what is going on but WP and Twitter seem to be having some sort of battle? I am way too exhausted to try and figure out what is going on.  I have turned off my feed so that may sort things out?

I just wanted to warn folks (if possible?) because when you click on the Post Title, the whole goddamn thing is basically one big hyperlink to my Twitter page!

Good grief!

Anyway…it will get sorted but until then, I apologise for a really messy and ugly blog.

Thank you for your patience.
