i got a job offer...

Thursday, January 27, 2011
...and it only cost me 3 interviews and an 8 hour trek in the snow for what's normally a 30 minute (at most) drive.

i went for round 3, yes, round 3 of the interview process for a job. you would think they were paying a salary that didnt end in "per hour" and was approriate for someone holding a masters. *shrug*. if you are familiar with the area, the job is near tyson's mall in VA and about 25 minutes in no traffic from my house. it was raining when i arrived, sleeting before i joined the staff meeting, and when i left my car was covered in snow. my mom and I figured it would be best to go to my sister's house b/c she lives in VA and really not far from that mall.

several down trees, abandoned vehicles, snow/ice, and one spin out later, i got to my sister's house safe and sound. it actually took me 8 hours and 15 minutes to pull into my sister's driveway. many thanks to the stranger who i let drive my car for a few feet to get me unstuck (do NOT tell my mom i did that). thanks to the other guy who shoveled me out. thanks to the assclown who decided to jump another car but in doing so blocked the entire lane right in front of me right as the light was changing o_O. ALSO thank you to anyone who insisted upon driving in marked lanes instead of the tracks laid out by heavier vehicles and wanting to do the posted speed limit instead of what was prudent for the conditions riding on my ass then speeding past and spinning out. proud of you...the people i appreciate most were those who threw on hazards and stopped in the middle of the highway to knock snow off when they didnt really have visibility issues AND the people who abandoned their cars in the middle of the lane. my favorite is whomever thought it was helpful to honk at the poor woman who was stuck as obvious efforts by others were being made to free her.

sincere thanks to country que for staying on the phone with me (like he really had anything else to do) and distracting me inadvertantly during the scariest part of the home stretch. how did we get on that topic? i told him stuff i dont really tell people anymore.

anyway, i have training the month of february and i start in march.
