I took my title out of a comment Alice left me on my homepage. Holy frkn shit the day I had today!! As hubby is on the nightshift and Im trying to keep close to his schedule if at all possible I crawled into bed roughly 6am this morning. I must have been dead to the world when hubby came home because I never heard him come in. At 930am we got a call and the ringing got me clear out of bed and I was at the desk in the bedroom before fully awake. I heard hubby on the phone and figured he's handling it so I start to crawl back into bed. Then he showed up at the bedroom door with the phone....it was WalMart wanting to talk to me. All those apps, all that waiting and today of all days.....a company calls to schedule an interview. *shakes head* Top things all off they wanted me in this morning at 1130am. Well I guess that shoots crawling back under the covers outta my plans for the day as hubby said maybe it'd be a good idea to at least go to the appointment. *sigh* I re-iterated that it didnt make sense to go to this interview if he was going to his interview as Im thinking if they're paying for hotel, flight, car, food AND reimbursing the money he pays out to get to the airport (a fact he failed to share until today) then damn well sure they're probably looking to hire him. I mean why bother when Im really sure we're going to be moving it's not fair to me OR the company I interview at! But he insisted. So I went to my interview , which turned into 3 interviews one right after the other, and I was completely up front about things. I figure, worse case they'll say no right?I told them that hubby's company was closing the plant he is in and that he has an interview in Virginia in 2 days and with all that the company was paying out to get him there that I was pretty sure they were serious to hire him AND that it was likely that I'd only be able to stay a couple weeks ...four at the most. After all that, they still decided that they would like to go ahead and give me my opportunity to get my feet wet again. The understanding we came to was to place me on seasonal work. If it looks like Im going to have to move around then so be it...we'll look at a transfer OR I'll be first laid off. No problem there for me. *IF* we end up staying and WalMart likes my work then the option is they keep me. In any case all cards were placed on the table and both the company and I are on the same page (so they cant say I wasnt open about the situation). I also explained that due to my driving situation (namely I dont) that there is no calling me at the last second and expecting me to just pop in within 10 minutes' time even though I was just around the corner because I'll be at the mercy of cab service. Now for the good news....they're sticking me in the toy department. ~grinz~ Much like what I was doing at Toys R Us...cant argue there....plus they're starting me out 70 cents higher than the per hour I requested. I'll know for sure once they've done the background check and get the results of the drug testing they did on me whether or not I have the job for sure. They'll call me back in for orientation once they decide. Im figuring since the second interviewer said they were entering me into the system AND told me how much I was keyed in for my pay that it's more than likely a good sign I should go shopping for clothes that are dress code compliant.
My Amazon shipment arrived today. Im really happy as now I have a couple small gifts to go on the sofa for hubby to open. He was waiting on me to open the box but I just left it on the printer and refused to touch it again until he was gone. LOL He goes..."so whatcha get?" I held the box up and shook it gently (thank goodness they packed it so nothing shifted and made noise) and stated that I heard a cd in there for me...LOL Mind you the box is much larger than a simple cd... *giggles*. He's left for the night and I've since opened it, retrieved my Jordin Sparks cd and hidden the box with the rest of the contents elsewhere in the house (and honey....if you're reading this and think you're gonna look...forget it...it's boobytrapped) heh heh heh.
Anyhow, I've ripped the cd (why? I dunno...I wont be streaming until this job situation is settled unless I decide to see if I can go on a fill-in only basis...) and am listening to it now. It's not bad...better than I expected to be honest. Her disc will work well when Im playing my Natalie and Cherish cds.
Well I guess I'd better wrap this up because I gotta pull up some apartments I want hubby to check out while he's back east....get the info and directions printed out for him. He's got a service coming to pick him up tomorrow at 8am which means he'll be home a bit earlier than usual. I hope they send him home earlier than he's planning because the poor guy got zippo in the sleep department today. He caught 2 hours at work before coming home...an hour before my interview and that's about it as we didnt get back to homebase until 2pm or so and I had to cut his hair and he had to pack yet. By the time all that was done it was nearly 5pm...no time for a nap. I hope he sleeps some on the plane.
