I need to stop being so sporadic in my postings. I had an interesting week. Where should I start?
Last Saturday, not yesterday, a week ago, I was bored and I decided to try my luck again with job hunting. I don’t even know why, but companies usually don’t answer right away or even answer. By the same day, not even an hour later, I got an answer from one asking for an interview. I was stunned. Then the next evening, the past Sunday, I got another one that asked me to come the next day, even at the lunch hour to talk. I was like ok?
So I went on Monday. It was a small business, not even 7 people, but the owner had a desperate way of asking me to come work. After conversing, and you guys know me! I think big, I love to organize the business, and I love to make things easy for the end user to utilize. The owner said, I will pay you the exact same salary you are getting now, and parking is free. So I am saving on parking? Wow! It was such an intriguing offer to leave my current job for that. Not only that, he wanted me to do management level work and development. I was like you are kidden me? Management work with this salary? So I told him no on the Tuesday.
He was not happy.
Did I mention that I didn’t go to the first interview with the company that answered me first because they won’t even pay close to what I am getting? But I will be getting an amazing atmosphere! Wow! Pay cut to work at God’s who knows place.
So back to the first employer. I said, “No thank you. This is not a career move that makes sense to me at the moment… blah blah…. ” I got a reply back with a very angry desperate tone. I told him I am too busy to think now, maybe I will have a definite answer in the end of the week.
What would you guys think when I said, “yeah whatever, I will answer you later?” REJECTION!
Friday came, and guess who emails me at 8:00 am? HIM asking if I thought about it and want to work for him. I was like dude, I appreciate the consideration, but no.
I knew a guy a few months ago who had the same approach in wanting to date me and I kept saying no, but he didn’t get it that I was not interested in him that way. He wasn’t my type. Now, this reminds me, earlier this week, my new co-worker, a very nice girl around my age asked me, “So what is your type of guy Mona?” That came as a surprise because I didn’t have an answer. I started with labeling some physical features, but then I kept thinking that it is wrong to judge someone on how they look. Then I kept changing my mind to stuff more related to how I looked. Tall, round face, olive skinned, educated, etc. She told me, “You love your self!” I said with a confused look, “I guess so… ”
Hmm yeah… Well, yesterday at the mall, I got my second ear re-pierced. Yes, now I have 4 active piercings. 1 was closed, and I re-opened it. Now I look like my old self. I still want to get one more piercing at the top of my left ear, but I can wait. I would pierce my nose, but then I would look Indian and I would itch my nose all the time. lol
So yeah, I had an interesting week. Sort of.
