So a couple of weeks ago, I was so excited because I was offered a job.  I was told it was just pending my background and reference check, and a drug test, none of which I was worried about.  I had good references, I’m not a convicted felon and I don’t do drugs.  They said they’d call me back in a few days with more information after that.  So I wait.  Almost 2 weeks.  I call, and leave messages, and finally today I got a call back letting me know that they decided I’m not qualified.  HR recommended not to hire me because I don’t have enough experience.  The job was as a HUC (Health Unit Secretary) at a hospital in a nearby city.  It was nice that everyone went on vacation and thought it wasn’t necessary to call and tell me this.  However, I find it hard to believe that I don’t have enough experience, seeing as how the last 8 years of my life I worked as a freaking secretary.  For three doctors.  And they knew what my experience was when they offered me the job, so what’s with all of the sudden realizing I’m not qualified?  I am so frustrated with that system.  I was frustrated with them before because I would apply for job after job, and receive emails saying that they didn’t hire me because I’m not qualified, yet there was no interview to even find out what my qualifications were.  The system lacks any communication and is very poorly done.  I love working in healthcare, and it’s just unfortunate that this particular healthcare system dominates the area, and I refuse to apply for any more job openings.  Not that it’s any skin off their nose I guess.  I’m just frustrated.  First because they never even bothered to tell me “Oh, nevermind we decided that REALLY YOU SUCK.”  And secondly because they offered me the job knowing what my experience was then deciding it’s not enough.  I’m so irritated.  It’s very frustrating.

I do have a bit of good news too!  We get to move next week into our own apartment.  It’s about as big as a skein of sugar n creme cotton, but it’ll be ours and we can move out of my mom’s house 🙂  We’ve been staying here since we moved until we can get our own place.  So I’m excited about that.  Fortunately we’ll be able to live there on what just the hubster makes, thankfully, but things will be tight.  Which is ok, life will go on.  In the meantime I think I’m still going to shoot for taking the CNA course that this one nursing home offers for free.  There’s a several months long wait list, but that’s ok.  I’m not doing anything anyway.  Plus, it will help in my quest to become a nurse, then a certified nurse midwife. 

Hope you all have a better day than me!! 🙂

Did you know?

Did you know that girls don’t like farts?  LOL!  I learned this tonight, after having the need to release one myself (is there a nice way to say that? LOL).  So, I did what I needed to do, then Jessie tells me “Mom, girls don’t like farts.”  I thought she meant that it wasn’t ladylike.  I asked her where she heard this interesting tidbit.  Apparently The Naked Brothers Band had this useful information, and she heard it and clicked save for future sharing of the info.  So anyway, now you all know that, yes, I have to fart sometimes.  And that my daughter does not approve.  Because girls don’t like farts!
