Good news – I went on another job interview, and they were interested! A very small company, but I was willing to take the risk.
Bad news…they contacted my current boss for a reference without having offered me the position and then ended up hiring someone else. But wait…how did this come about?
Scene 1: My boss comes to me early this week and says, “So tell me about this new job!” I squirm and equivocate.
Scene 2: I receive a forwarded email from my boss that was sent from the prospective employer. In it, he notes that they have decided to hire another candidate. &!!#$@!? Un-be-lievable.
Needless to say, I ended the week in a fairly stressed-out frame of mind. To celebrate my birthday (yes – an eventful week) I had booked my first massage. Good timing.
It was, in a word, delicious. I’ve been knotted up for most of my life! Although it was sometimes a little uncomfortable, it really worked the kinks out. Bliss! There will be more of these…
Having oozed down the street to a local coffee house, I sit here relaxed and full of biscotti and Darjeeling. In true Scarlett O’Hara fashion, I’ll leave damage control until “tomorrow.”
