Maybe We Should Shake On That

From my buddy Ronia at The 100 Day Season:
Listen you! You better update your blog!!! I'll be blogging in less than 3 days!!! You better get blogging my friend! Make me laugh .... I need to laugh!
Sorry about that. I've been interviewing the past couple of weeks and I've been a little stressed out.  I generally do ok with interviewing but I have had some mishaps along the way.

I remember one interview I had many years ago when I was moving from the medical field to information technology. To my surprise, I knew one of the woman in the office. We hugged and kissed on the cheek as old friends do. I interviewed with two or three people that day. I was happy with how things went and was fairly certain I would be offered the job. I walked back to my car , all pleased with myself. I got in the car, buckled myself in, and looked in my rear view mirror before backing out of my parking spot. Then I saw it. My friend in the office wore bright red lipstick and apparently thought I needed some as well as she had left a big red lip print on the side of my face. It would have looked ok if I was interviewing for clown school but it wasn't such a good look for your typical office.  I just wish I hadn't worn such big shoes that day.

That would be exactly the kind of person that I would hire! If someone else loved you, I might, too. Not to mention a woman with a kiss mark on her face is kind of hot.

I feel your pain! I once left an interview sure I clinched it when I looked down and realized that my pants had been unzipped the whole time.

Hey Sinnerviewer - Aren't you a sweetie. I never thought of it like that. That makes me feel better about the whole thing. Thank you!

LMAO Trinity. That is too funny. I mean, I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time, but it is giving me a chuckle now. Sorry you had to experience that!

CJ, when I was younger and just starting to use the internet there was a mad scramble for a dixie cup used by a certain hot actress that had a lipstick mark on the rim. Nowadays they would just put it on eBay. I know you can't put people on eBay but a lipstick mark really adds curb appeal anyway!

You've been missed.

And I was sick and tired of looking at that ugly building.

LOL!
Welcome back!

Hey Blondie - Yes, I got the job. But I hated it and quit after two weeks.

Hi OC! Thank you for the well wishes. All this looking has made me a little weary.

Thank you John! I know, that building isn't too pretty to look at. Hope I didn't permanently damage anyone's eyes here.
