You're Hired

I nervously went to the interview today, I think I did a few things right, but I know I did a few things wrong and left the interview feeling like I didn't get the job.

The lady told me she would call me before the day was out to let me know either way.

So I go home, nervous, thinking I'm an idiot for being nervous-either I got the job or I didn't. But I still fret like an idiot!

About the time I was giving up, about 5:15, the lady calls and offers me the job. Then a whole new set of nerves kick in!

I go tomorrow to sign papers for a background check and to take a drug test. I'm not worried about the background check, but having been to a few parties in March where people were "partaking" that runs through my mind.

I have no idea how all that works, but I read it takes 4 weeks to get out of your system. I am pretty sure it has been at least that long.

The hours will be off from Rick's, to where we wouldn't see each very much except on the weekends. He was bummed about that, but I told him he will learn to appreciate me more! He wasn't amused.

I hope everyone is having a great week :)

Congratulations! And I wouldn't worry too much about the drug test; a little might have shown up earlier on, but unless you partake yourself, it passes pretty quickly, at least to a quantity that barely registers. And generally, prospective employers are more concerned with drugs you can't get a "contact high" from.
And being on different schedules from Rick's could, as you say, be a good thing! "Absence makes the heart grow fonder!"

Congratulations! Aargh! Popped over from another blog, simply because your name is Jeff. Now I'm going to have to come back when I have more time and read the whole darn thing. Like boring blogs much better, can take a peek and move on.
