I think it went well but still waiting....

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

So, I think my interview went well. I couldn't meet with the HR lady because she got stuck in a meeting so I made sure to leave her a good voicemail towards the end of her day today. My sister says I should make sure to call her tomorrow to follow up as well.
Even though I am older by a few years, my sister and I have led very different lives and she always seems to be taking care of me and helping me figure myself out....I always try to tell her that I appreciate her but she just tells me to stop it, lol, so I just tell her that I love her all the time. Her and I are the closest out of us kids, not in age, I am second in birth order and she is 4th, the baby of us all.

I took a cab to my appointment today because it was super warm and it is hard for me to do new things like taking the bus without getting lost and I didn't want to be late. It was 23.00 to get there so my beau used my sisters car to come get me....I should have taken her car to get there but she said her check engine light was on last night and my brother in law was at work by the time I was done.

I didn't get any exercise today. I figured I would go out after lunch and get my license changed over at the DMV...I thought I was going to wither and die of old age or irritation!
They charged me 30.00 just to transfer my license (it was only 10 when I transferred to Louisiana) they made me take a written test, and then called a supervisor over to inquire whether I had ever lived in MS, I told him, 'no, I've been through there though' and he asked me if I received a speeding ticket on my way through. Was not me.
I LOATHE the DMV! I cannot stress this point enough, it is just one of those things for me which is why it took me 6 months to change my license.

An interesting thing happened while I was there, the lady in front of me getting her written test graded missed 13 out of 15 signs and several more on the questions...I really don't think she understood the directions...as in spoke or understood very little English and her final count of wrong answers was 23 I think. That was out of 40 or 50 including all the signs. The interesting part is that if she really doesn't understand English, then she got an amazing number correct for just guessing! Needless to say they did not let her pass but wouldn't let her look at the book there like everyone else, the driving test guy was really rude to her and told her to go home to study. True to total government jerkface employee....he thought that speaking louder and louder at her would make her somehow understand. She is not deaf, a-hole, she is either not fluent in English or illiterate.

*Big breath* Ok, /end rant!

I have plans to get a bike ride in tomorrow (humidity and asthma permitting), I need to return my library book and I was thinking of riding my bike up to the bus stop and seeing if there was a place to lock up my bike so I can take the bus to my (hopefully) new place of business.

Hopefully I will get a good phone call tomorrow about my interview
Take care and love yourself!

    Good luck!! Interviews are stresssfullll.

    I spent a lot of time at the DMV a few years ago - I had to change over due to changing states, then changed my name due to marriage, then change my address! (I couldn't get a parking sticker in my new city without my new address on my license. Stupid rule!) They actually got to know me - the greeter lady who tells you which line to get in was like "oh, you're back again!" hahaha. Crazy...

    DMV.... I don't drive, but had to sit in these while DH took tests for CDL, as he is a slow reader. You can watch people and be entertained. Sometimes it was sad as elderly could not see the vision test. And sadder as the worker let them have license when they could not see as they did not want to say no to them! Guess in small towns, the workers are kinder? But the dear elderly at some point have to stop driving too.

    Crossing my legs, fingers and eyes hoping you get this job.
