Because, mom and dad taught me that!

On Thursday I had a job interview. Same agency just a different department. Mind you, I've been with this same agency for 26 3/4 years. I know most of what goes on there and I've seen every change imaginable. The job I applied for was an Administrative Tech. It meant having all weekends off, all holidays off and not having to get someone to work for you so you could get a vacation.
Yesterday, Heather who interviewed me came to me and let me know they had hired someone else. This new person, Tabitha, worked in a mortuary. Mind you we do work with mostly living people.
But they felt she was more qualified. During my interview I felt like they were giving me every road block possible. The AT job is not one who normally does maintenance. They decided to write that in to the job description. They know I can't climb ladders or walk very well out on uneven property or clean icy sidewalks. I honestly felt they deliberately jeopardized my opportunity for this job. When I went in to the interview on Thursday the first thing I was told that I was over qualified for the job. What the heck? How can a person who normally answers the phones, talks to clients daily and does reports monthly, etc be too qualified? Well thank you for a backwards kind of compliment, I think!
Enough of my rant. I still have my same job. I still get 40 hrs a week. What I don't like it having to work weekends and every holiday under the sun that falls on my normally scheduled days of work. When I was with the other agency before the new merge 3 years ago. I had all holidays off and worked Monday - Friday. That was taken away from me when the merge occurred. I'm 57 years old. I've worked since I was 14. I'm getting tired. But if you know me, you'll know I'll continue to give my job 110% no matter what the circumstances are because mom & dad taught me that.
Have a great day everyone ~ Donna
