Something Ain’t Right. Actually, A Couple Things…

I’ve had enough of this “sick” business. I’m not sure what kind of horrible plague has been brewed, since the flu shots were useless and the weather changes by 25 degrees every few days, but this is ridiculous. I’ve been sick for like 3 weeks and the antibiotics just tickled it a little.
I still had a pretty awesome week. Got to have a great trip to the gym, meet up with a friend, have a nice night at church, and I seem to have forgotten Thursday altogether. Huh. Wonder what I did that day.
But it was nice and productive. Then I woke up yesterday feeling like junk. It was a long day, it was my last day at my awesome job working in the church. People came to say goodbye, and I tried to make sure I tied up all the lose ends. I was pretty wiped out from all of the emotions this week.
I got an email from a recruiter, and he was indirectly asking me if I was interested in a position in an awesome company. I was pretty amped. I emailed him back, and, as calmly and intelligently as possible, said YES, I WOULD LIKE THAT!!! Super excited. This changes everything, the sky opened up and the sun was shining just for me!!!
He calls me to talk to me, and he sounds like he has a big secret. He’s speaking very quietly, with the phone very close to him mouth, and he’s mumbling, like he’s trying to make sure no one hears him. To make it fun, he also has an extremely heavy accent. I missed about 75% of what he said. I did my best to answer his questions, and then he dumped out a sentence I didn’t understand. I said ” I’m sorry, I didn’t catch that.” He said it again. He repeated the same thing, in the same speed and volume about 3 more times. 5 minutes later he finally said “I’m asking about your visa status”
Oh! Well, why didn’t you say so! I’m not sure what he said at the end of the call, but it seemed like he would be passing my info to someone else. I’m not sure why, or what that means, or what I’m supposed to do, but I think that’s what he said.
So now, here I have this amazing opportunity to work for this unbelievable company, and it all comes down to one guy, mumbling to me on the phone. One guy standing between me and something great, and I can’t understand the words that are coming out of his mouth!! WHY?!?!
I swear the weirdest things happen to me. Like a recruiter with marbles in his mouth. I emailed him after the conversation, saying I had a difficult time hearing him and wanted to follow up, and that I was sorry for the difficulties. So we will see what happens.
But today me and my mommy went and saw a great movie. And now I’m back in bed, because I’m still sick. For like the third week. At least the kids have calmed down from their near-homicidal “been out of school too long” tendencies. I gotta rest up for my awkward-off as the new girl at my new job on Monday.
