No Job For You


I didn't get the job. Excuse me a moment while I wail and clench my fists and blow my nose really, really loud.

Why didn't they like me? Why? WHY? 

*sob*

Was it my Dr. Seuss criminal record on the background check? Was it because I'm old and fat and they wanted yet another Big-Boobied Tartlet at their orifice cooler? (It's a bird. Look it up.) Because, really, are there ever enough young women in tight blouses and camel-toe pants working at car dealerships?

It's not like I don't have social media experience. (Right?) It's not like I don't have 30 years under my belt as a writer and a photographer. It's not like I couldn't give them the most awesome website they'd ever seen, complete with a funny, fabulous Facebook page that people WANT to interact with. It's not like I couldn't do the fecking JOB in my fecking SLEEP.

Maybe it's because I like to say feck so much? Well feck, I wouldn't say feck on their Facebook page ... OK, so maybe just once or twice...

I didn't actually think they would reject me. I honestly thought they would offer me the job and then I would negotiate a higher wage because, frankly, I'm worth twice what they were offering and I live in a fecking dream world. And then, when they refused to offer me more moolah, I would tell them to stick their job in their pipe and smoke it.

I just didn't imagine them not offering me the job. How big-headed and stupid is that?

I know I should act like a grown-up but I really feel sorry for myself right now. I may have to spend the rest of the day blowing my nose and yelling at the cats.

  1. I'm sorry!
    Get even - set up a fake Facebook page for them and then have at it.

  2. Awwww I'm sorry Cathy! :( But that just means something WAY better is out there for you!!! You've said that Dave's making great money, so do you really need to work right away? Can you take some time off for yourself?

    1. Yes, I'm definitely taking some time for myself! Myself and my bon-bons and extra large box of kleenex!

    Just don't throw out the blouse. It's awesome.

  8. I spent last night in a pint of Cherry Garcia ice cream.

    I have a "severe strain of the left tendons in my right ankle"... had it for a month, but since it's not getting any better, I now can not walk or run for a while... which means no 10k this weekend. :( AND possibly no working as well (2nd opinion next Thursday). It's too bad you didn't live closer, or even in the same country, we could share a half gallon.

    (((HUGS)))

    1. Oh Juli, that is pure suckage! I'm so sorry about your ankle. You're handling it the right way though.... cold things are always the best cure for sore joints.

      Now, pass it my way, please.

    1. You're right... well, it was kind of right... practically perfect, actually, but pffft, not right at all as it turns out!

  10. We all agree (well, most of us) something good will come of it. We've all been there; we know that's how it works out.

  11. Go back to the post where you first told us about this job. If they don't appreciate you, they don't deserve you!.
    And painful hemmorhoids to them all.

  13. I think the dealership missed a great opportunity -- they'd sell more cars with a Big-Boobied Tartlet on staff :)

    But really... there's something else out there for you, like everyone hear is saying. You are way over-qualified to sell vehicles. So hang in there, think out of the box, and be kind to the cats (though I yell at my cat all the time, but he doesn't give a feck--he's deaf).

    Love the new blog look, btw. Have missed you... Peace...

  14. It's completely their loss, Cathy. Go interview for their biggest competition; getting that job and killing it over there, sounds like the best revenge to me :)

  15. Loooo hooooo sers. Keep your chin up dear friend, the right thing will come along and this will be a lil' blip on the Cathydar. :)

    1. Have to tell you, Lou, I spent, like, 10 minutes trying to figure out what Loooo hoooo sers meant. Said it out loud and everything... When I finally figured it out I made a big L on my forehead (backwards, as usual... sigh...)

  16. And maybe, just maybe, your fate is to be a lady of leisure at this point in your life. Stranger things have happened. Maybe your own on-line employment is just around the corner. Maybe start your own newspaper.

    Oh, yeah; sorry you didn't get the job. It's their loss.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

    1. You know what Rob? You are RIGHT! I have worked my whole life and frankly it's time to STOP!!!!

      Now, pass the bon-bons.

  17. Sorry you didn't get the job, but don't yell at the cats. They'll find revenge. *speaks from experience*

    But you know what? If it didn't happen, it's probably a good thing. I wish they hadn't offered me my job. I'd be in England right now with the family I babysat for, babysitting there for a year and then making my own life. Now it's too late, and while searching to get away from here I don't get offered jobs...

    1. Oh Estrella, that is incredibly sad. I sincerely hope you find an opportunity to move to England. Hugs an very, very best wishes.

  18. When I read that title, I heard "the soup Nazi" from Seinfeld saying "No soup for you!!" Cuts me up every time!

    Don't sweat it, Cathy. Take some time off to enjoy your new home and get to know the area. Meet people and explore. Once you start a new job you won't have much free time, so enjoy it while you can. Take this time for yourself! The right job will come along when the time is right.
