Literally and figuratively. Funny that the internet station I have on now is playing the Bruce Springsteen song that captions this post.
Its raining again as it always seems to do in the fall, though yesterday was pleasant, a good opportunity to repaint the storage shed we have this time with an anti-fungal agent mixed it to keep the paint from prematurely deteriorating due to lack of sunlight. Why lack of sunlight? That’s another story.
A cousin of mine, who knows the people I interviewed with last month, did me a favor and asked what was going on in their hiring process. Learned I had indeed made a good impression on both, but, ……. They are moving on with other candidates. If there is a silver lining it is I was told they would like to continue the conversation which could mean something.
Another thing that still irks/stings a bit. Noticed a position opened the person who fills it will report directly to a former co-worker. Asked about it and told it would probably be filled from within, which I understand, but was told that a candidate has a Master’s degree, and implying since I do not. That it pure BS. I may not have a piece of paper hanging on my wall like some do, but I definitely have the equivalent experience.
So its one of those days when I sit and wonder why I should even bother to shower and shave…but I will.
