It Comes and Goes in Waves

No, not the awesome sauce song by Greg Laswell. I go through points where I have no job leads... then like 2 or 3 call me at the same time and then I'm fluster - *obscene language* for a few weeks with what to do and it turns out that I get none of them anyway.
Today I signed tax papers for a position in a mall. Then they said they'd call me in sometime next week (I guess they are running a background check) to start. I get back home and I get a phone call for a Beverage packaging job in another city. They wanted to set up an interview and honestly... now that I have a job as holiday help, I feel the mall job will want me to start on the same day as my interview... I don't even know my schedule yet. I told them I could work any hours 1. to make myself more accessible, and 2. when I applied... I honestly had nothing going on. Things wait to happen until I commit myself to something more boring.
I know most of you are wondering... "why not just say that you can't work Monday if asked?" One reason is that I know as Christmas help I can be fired if I can't work. I need the money to be able to move in the first place! And I have nothing else to do so I'm just sitting here worrying about what's gonna happen. If I get offered the job I'll have to leave the job I just got offered, and probably right after training. The job I'm interviewing at thought I still lived in my college city because somehow my website still had the city listed (even though I hid location details) so when I said I'd need two weeks notice upon offer to start he seemed rather hesitant (what's with these people? They're too impatient!!!!!)
So a time in my life that's supposed to be care free and well has found a way to make me feel miserable. :-( I just feel I'm gonna get screwed over again and out of both positions given my luck. I don't even feel right rescheduling the interview because that can also look bad.
