i had a job interview this afternoon, she said she'd "check my references and let me know" which normally means forget it<br><br>
but yay she called back an hour ago or so to offer me the job <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
yaaay<br><br><br><br>
just had to share that!<br><br>
it's a women's clothing store called Northern Reflections (the canadians around here probably know of it). it's part time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> booo but she said odds are it'll be a lot of hours and it's a permanent position so it might be alright (this is a theatre town and there's no theatre in winter meaning tourism goes down and everyone's business suffers, so most people only hire part timers for the summer and lay them off in the fall)<br><br><br><br>
the pay is lower than i was getting at the other place but i can't afford to be picky. i can always keep an eye out for better jobs while i'm there and leave if something comes along. so yeah i go in tuesday to get some papers to look over and i start my training on wednesday. i think it'll be pretty easy, it's a very small store, i mean you walk 3 steps and you've crossed it.<br><br><br><br>
not my top pick but it's a job so i'm happy for the moment <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
now you can all be freed from my neverending whining about unemployment and getting screwed out of my last job, hurrah for everyone lol

LOL they cater to old women what do you expect <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
but no their stuff has gotten a lot nicer lately, my winter coat is from there, i love it. i have to wear NR clothes to work, but get a 50% discount. and what i wear has to be recent, like still on the racks, so basically with every pay i gotta buy clothes.(i can so handle that)

i could if i wanted to though, they still sell some ducky-moosey stuff<br><br><br><br>
i also get a discount at the kid's store (northern getaway) which will come in handy for shopping for the sis-in-law

lol thanks mushroom. i'm used to dealing with older customers so i'm sure i'll be fine in that department at least. i suppose when i stop in on tuesday i should pick out a couple things to wear to training =/<br><br>
i'm sooooooooo glad i got paid yesterday from the old job. funny thing was i thought i was just getting comission, i forgot that i had another 2 weeks of pay due because of the pay schedule, i was expecting $100 and found 850 in my account instead <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> i almost peed myself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I once made the mistake of calling my mum old. . . It took 2 weeks of <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/notworthy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wayne:"> to make up for it.
