Pink Hair, Cat ears, T-shirt = no work

Ok, so i took my truck to the mechanic today..in hopes of diagnosing the overheating problem..and i figure while i'm out, go to the places that want in house applications that i found. cool no prob.

1st place, friendly, family atmosphere got an app, no bad "we don't want you vibes" so ill try to turn that app in tomorrow.

2nd place.. way the eff out there, in a one of a kind town called Henniker. (seriously, only one on earth) My GPS on my phone actually almost got me lost.. if i turned where it said, i'd be swimming in the swamp right now..lol! i just kept going HOPING i'd find the place! ROFL! ANYWAY, i go in..they were out of apps, so they asked if i could come back.. i said sure, i needed to put gas in my truck anyway.. called a friend on the phone while i went and filled up and passed some time before going back for an application.. so i get off the phone with my friend and go in to fill out the app.
THAT was a bit painful.. little to no job history.. so i finish, and the manager comes down.. $hit.. he's in his late 40's early 50's easy.. looks me up and down, shakes my hand.. we sit, and have a short chat. the restaurant is nice..a bit posh.. not somewhere a girl with pink hair and cat ears will fit in.. he didn't care that i smoked either..though i said to him that i was trying to quit. asked me about my commute.. and well that's more than 30 mins now that i timed it.. so yeah.. he's like "i'll call you, we just posted the ad" i'm thinking yeah right..that ad has been up for a couple weeks, and when i first walked in they were out of applications..part of the reason i had to come back. why cant they just tell me "your appearance doesn't fit our restaurant, but thanks for your time" i don't care if they think they'll be sued..i wouldn't.. an honest answer in my book is better than "i'll call you" cuz WE ALL KNOW that means application in the trash.

oh well i still have another app to fill out and a couple online apps to fill in..

    Henniker is a unique place in New Hampshire....

    I used to live in Hillsborough and drove through Henniker all the time. Did the restaurant happen to be Country Spirit? All of their employees seem to be identical twins. I think it is in their small fine print that you have to NEVER change how to look to work there~! Haha

    Definitely their loss though!

    thanks. I should have said .."Didn't care for the fact that i smoked" so new plan.. when i know i'm gonna be out for whatever reason, i'll just have to dress a bit nicer..(FREEZE my behind off) skirt and dress shirt, heels, and well i need a new jacket.. cuz the one i have..would totally ruin that image. 13yo chiefs starter jacket lol! (been called squishy because of it ^_^)

    anyway.. gotta make do with what i've got..not gonna change that much,just maybe not an "I don't have an ANGER problem..I have an IDIOT problem" t-shirt and jeans anymore ne? lol!

    ya, their loss, but on the other side, if you KNOW you are going out to fill out job apps, dress for it and take the ears off before you walk in LOL. Depends on the place though, some places might LIKE that! just have to keep trying dear. You can do it!
