I have been so tired of searching for employment. Bad enough to have gotten only 3 interviews in over 15 months in these economic conditions. Twice I thought I had landed something, only to find out that the encouraging words from the interviewers was false. Not on the part of my interpretation of their words - they told me that they were impressed with my experience and knowledge - that the last candidate they had to interview before the final decision would be made clearly had no training, no knowledge of what was expected of them!
I phoned Mr. Wonderful yesterday evening near the end of the day to report that the job I thought I had landed last week had been given to someone with less experience, someone "younger". I asked him to pick up a couple of things at the store on his way home from work.....I was really bummed. When he walked in the door, I got this:
When I asked what the occasion was, he simply said "Congratulations - on the WORST JOB you NEVER GOT!" Now, doesn't that bring tears to your eyes?? How sweet he IS!
