am so freakin' sick of people asking me about the job search.
Yes, I understand that people are simply trying to take an
interest, but their pathetic attempts to relate to me during
my job search are even more frustrating than their half-hearted
attempts while I was working.
following exchange happened last week.
answer the phone: "Hello?"
on the other end of the phone. My beau's mom. "Hi there.
How's it going?"
What's new?" I ask.
much. What's new with you?"
much." I respond.
she asks: "Got a job yet?"
that she has already asked me "How's it going?"
and "What's new?" For someone who has been unemployed
for a few months, you would figure a job might be considered
a positive event... even something "new".
problem with looking for work is you learn not to mention
interviews to people until the entire interview process is
completed. If you do mention that you have an interview coming
up, you start realizing that interviews are pretty important,
but they don't pay. Then people ask how the interview went,
usually the day after when you're busy praying that you either
do get a job offer or don't ever hear from the potential employer
