~inconsiderate~

Dear stupid local radio station -

Thank you for calling me a WHOLE 15 minutes before my scheduled interview to CANCEL. That was very thoughtful of you because I was already in the 'effin parking lot after racing out of work after an unusually busy day where I could have worked late and made more money instead of coming to meet with you.

Don't bother calling to reschedule either. You can take your stupid promotions job and shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

I have a more promising interview @ the university next week anyway that will (1) pay more and (2) provide kick-a$$ benefits...of course, if they don't discriminate against me like everyone else has lately. Heck...that's probably why YOU canceled my interview anyway.

Take a long walk off a short pier-

You should call them and pretend you're corporate sponsors who want to do promotions and set up times to meet and then just not show. Ha!

Amy-that's a GREAT idea. LOL!!

yeah, just make them like new local products with made up names. you wouldn't want coke or subway to get pissed and sue you for pretending to be them.

aw, Man! You're kidding! I know you're not, but that's what I would have *said* to you in real life. Sorry. My fingers are still crossed for the university one. They *can't* descriminate. It's a university. They know that if they do, you'll settle a big fat huge lawsuit. At least the university that I work at is that way...

Nichole-this is a new university position, different from the one I was interviewing for a couple wks ago (where I still think I was discriminated against there). The thing is, it's very hard to prove they are not selecting me because I'm PG. It would involve filing an investigation, potentially getting a lawyer - etc...I don't have the time, money or desire to go through all that - even though it pisses me off big time!!

We'll see what happens next week @ the university - I didn't tell them over the phone I was PG, so it'll probably end up being a waste of my time.

If they write you off now b/c you're pregnant, you should let them have it. You're like what, 2 minutes away from your due date? Even if it took them only a week to hire somebody, miracle of miracles, they have to assume that the person will AT LEAST need to give 2 weeks notice at their current job. You should say "I would like to know why this other person you hired is more qualified than myself."

good luck at the university!

Nora-I was inside when they finally told me...the interview was @ 4:30 and they called @ 4:15 so I was basically there, but didn't notice the call on my cell phone. Either way, I had to leave work at 3:45pm to get there on time. They suck.

Em-YES, please come with me...I have an interview on Thursday @ the university that will surely turn out to be NOTHING as soon as they see me.

The radio gal called me yesterday morning to reschedule but I missed her call and have not called her back. I guess she thinks I'm sitting @ home picking my nose cuz she wanted me to come in yesterday or today...ha!! Fat chance!
