Poor Neglected Blog

My poor neglected blog!  I don’t know how I can’t find time for it as my official job ended a few weeks ago.  My daughter has a part time job and I have been doing that more than she has.  She was injured falling down some stairs, so of course she needed time to heal!  Then, we got so busy with pet sitting.  June just flew by.

I know it’s just a casual blog, but it doesn’t feel right to just let it set!  I know it doesn’t have feelings, but I almost feel like it does.

As always, I enjoy reading blogs when I can find time, but at some point I need to start writing again! Life is too busy.  I thought by this time in my life, it would be a slower pace.  SILLY ME!

Until the time I start posting again, you all will just have to put up with my occasional silly comments!





Interview Oopsie

I had an interview for a nanny position.  I thought it went well.  As I was getting ready to leave, I asked if she would let me know one way or the other after she was done interviewing candidates.

She told me they didn’t have anyone else lined up.  She said she and her husband would discuss it and call with an answer in a few hours.  I was surprised, but thanked her.

I left their house an 12 (noon) and by 9 pm I still had not heard from them.  So, I sent a short email thanking them for meeting with me.  Just a casual follow-up thank you.

She immediately wrote back stating that the other lady she was going to interview cancelled and rescheduled for later in the week.  After they meet with her, she would let me know their decision.

So, I am thinking she forgot she already told me they didn’t have anyone else lined up to interview, and this was a way to put off telling me they didn’t want me.  I might be wrong.  Maybe, someone contacted them to apply right after I left.  I want to give them the benefit of the doubt!

I have had similar things happen before.  It’s like people are terrified to tell me that they don’t think we are a good fit.  I only get a bit annoyed when they tell me I am too old for the job.  Heck, I was once told I wasn’t pretty enough for the job.  Thank goodness I didn’t get that one!

Needless to say, I am not waiting for an answer and will apply to other jobs.  I found this a bit funny and wanted to share!
