Bad karma, table for 1

Category Job? Huh?

I do not consider it a superlative sign when my second interview is “postponed” at 6:00 PM the night before I’m supposed to have it. The explanation offered was reasonable, and you’ll all be pleased to know that I resisted screaming, crying, or mentioning that the only way to make it up to me now is to hire me.

On the bright side, now I don’t have to shave my legs tomorrow. See how I always grasp that silver lining? Yeah.

    And what a silver lining it is, huh? I’ve been putting off shaving forever, and no I just can’t grasp that razor with my poor, broken finger…you’re sobbing for me, aren’t you? Guess it will have to wait another two weeks. :-D
    They did reschedule the interview, though, right?

  2. Sheryl

    It just means their fighting over your salary. They don’t want to break their budget, but they’re afraid you’ll turn down the job if the offer isn’t high enough. So they’ve asked their accountant to pull an allnighter to find some hidden money to sweeten the deal.

    Did they set a new appointment when they postponed this one?

  4. Mir

    I wasn’t rescheduled right away, which made me a little bit uneasy. But since then I’ve received confirmation for next Tuesday, including the information that Someone Important there has asked to meet me. So, I’m feeling better than I did when I first posted this. ;)

  5. Nancy

    I think this is a good sign!

  6. susan

    Yes, sounds promising. Good Luck! Sorry you have to wait until next week.

    Hmmm… just to blow this out of proportion, perhaps they are really wanting to offer you the job but the VIP wants to do it in person instead of having an underling do it.

  8. Marcia

    I’m thinking it sounds good too. It’s better to have ALL of the decision makers involved. Then money can be offered and voila, happily employed Mir. :)

  9. Betsy

    But what I really want to know is this – you’re going to wear the boots, right?

  10. udge

    Wear your lucky boots!

  11. Peek

    Yeah for someone important. Kick some ass Missy! Like they say, all things worthwhile are worth waiting for (thus the postponement).

  12. Amanda B.

    I’m sure it will work out fine darlin. You are too super smart and sassy for it not to. Annnd if it doesn’t for some reason then the big GOD has something better for you somewhere else.

    Finger crossed for ya!

    I was with Sheryl until I got to Betsy – You gotta wear the FMBs. You know, its like when ball players wear the same pair of underwear all during the playoffs so as not to jinx it. They bring you luck!

    P.S. You have my permission to change your underwear, though. After all, there’s a reason locker rooms smell the way they do.
