    UGH!!! Didnít get the job....kicks to the gut and more.

    What a beautiful day here in Garrett County....
    Then the phone rang.
    Bad news.
    My wife calls to inform me that the sill plate/foundation beneath my house needs to be either replaced or repaired. My realtor went on vacation for two weeks and gave this information to her partner, but they ďforgotĒ to include it in the list of repairs based on the inspection report.
    The buyer want a list of things FIXED, not credited. Iíve already dropped 6k for everything we knew about, and now, 3 weeks before closing, gotta drop another $5,500 to have it taken care of to satisfy the buyer. Heís already threatened to back out if things arenít right.
    Awesome.
    So just as I was ready to hang up, Iím getting a call from Morgantown.
    I answered the phone to hear the lovely voice of Amanda, informing me that the company has decided to go with another candidate, and thank you for coming in for the interview.
    Really? I just drove 1,100 miles for this gig, knowing that I am by far qualified and perfect for their position. The smarmy millennial who interviewed me had me thinking I was a lock.
    Awesome.
    So I call my mother to fill her in on all the crap Iím dealing with, she lets me bleed my heart out for a few minutes, and finishes the conversation by informing me that my Uncleís fiancť died last night of a massive heart attack.
    Awesome.

    So Iíve got a bunch of applications and resumes out within a 50 mile radius, been looking for months, but have nothing lined up. Gotta drive back to FL Saturday am at the latest, and itís gonna rain like hell the whole trip.

    Grrrrr....

    Sorry to hear things went sour.

    Sometimes when God pulls a rug He throws a pie.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Sorry to hear that. I would not be surprised if it were your age that got you. I interviewed for a job here last year and absolutely had no doubts the job was mine until the interviewer slipped up and told me they were looking for a younger person to replace an older gentleman in his late 50s who was planning on retiring within the next 5 years. I wish i had a recorder on me at the time! Age discrimination does exist!

    If the job is not right for you it’s definitely for the best. Something better will come along. Good luck!

    It's hard to man up when you keep getting your butt kicked. I still have the bruising from years past.

    But time does move on. Keep the faith Dave - there'll be something coming just around the corner. All will change someday.

    Just remember when you're feeling you're at the bottom, it can ONLY get better. Be patient. Things WILL get better.
    Probably better than you can even imagine.

    I'm sorry that didn't work out Dave!

    I'm a firm believer that when one door closes another one opens.

    You'll get something better that was meant to be. No Doubt.

    I too am sorry about the fiancťe passing.

    I’ve just realized it is the Company’s loss, not mine...
    But I’m sure I would have gotten the job if I was a black, transgender, Muslim American veteran in a wheelchair with autism.
