Even though I have a job, it's only a temporary job so I check the ads every day just in case someone's opening up a window, waiting for me to jump in like the monkey that I am. So in average I apply for about 4 jobs a week since we've been back from Asia.
Today I got a call from a translation bureau and they want to see me this friday. I made a mistake, all went well in the conversation at first but I was at work so I wasn't comfortable. I walked to the hall and there was some lady who tried to ask me something: "Excuse me ... " but I motioned her that I was on the phone. She irritated the hell out of me, she heard me speaking did she think I was talking to myself?! Djeez!
Then, when the man asked me what day I'd be available, I checked my agenda. And I said with an accent in our language similar to a Queens accent in Manhattan: "I'm gonna geeet my agenda". With the accent on get.
Why the fuck did I check my agenda for in the first place??? I work 5 days a week, during the day I'm nowhere else but at WORK!!! I'm such an idiot (yes, I'm aware of the pattern).
So there are two things that bother me:
1. The ACCENT. Damn, sista don't go speakin' in no accent on the muhafuckin' job.
2. the woman in the hall that I send about her business. First of all, she threw me off. Second of all, I did not help her. That's not nice, and although I know
I'm not nice, I don't want this potential boss-man to know that.
Normally I'm not this bothered with potential employers. But this is the first interview that I got on my own, without a recruiter. And the man sounded veeeeeeeeeery formal. More formal than the professors at uni. So we'll see how this'll unfold.

Ms. Wollstonecraft had this to say:
Don't worry about it--things work out.
As for the woman who interrupted you when you were on the phone, she knew better, but apparently thought it was a personal call, so she could interject a work question. Don't sweat it--you will go far in life!
ps. Was the dude too formal a mofo? mebbe you don't want to work for heem.

goatman had this to say:
Decency and kindness are always best. That way you don't wonder why you lost ,or got, the job.
Best of luck in your quest for meaningful employment.
