Well, we didn't apply for anything today. Nothing out there that mama was qualified for. A lot of them sound perfect, and then at the end throw in something really stupid that mama can't do. Must be able to lift 70 pounds? Must have knowledge of Mac? Must have car so you can run errands (what, so that they don't have to waste THEIR gas and their time picking up their drycleaning or taking their grandma to the airport???). Or else they say no benefits at the end, or that they are in a faraway suburb, or prospect must know the &*$#@ program, or you have to have a cell phone and be able to travel at a moment's notice (not with me. You can't shuffle me off to just anyone, and just who is going to pay the spa/kennel/sitter??).
This is getting ridiculous. Nasty beans!
Oh, yes. Mama sent a nice thank you to a place that interviewed her several months ago and turned her down, and when mama applied again, they sent her a nice letter saying they weren't going to interview her for the new different job. She complimented them on being so nice. She sent it off early this morning. She got a reply this afternoon. An automated one saying that person was out of the office due to an ill child and out all afternoon. Hmmm. Being older, employees never have to worry about that with mama. I have not been the vet kind of sick (knock on wood, mama says) for many years.
She also sent a couple of places she applied a nice how's it going. One (the nicer one) responded and said they would be setting up interviews next week.
*kitty sigh* She tries.
Love, headbumpies, purrs and of course,
a sweet 'allo to my sweet and wonderful Sugar Pie,
