One down, many, many more to go

I went to my first of many interviews yesterday. It was a strange experience. I haven't been to an interview since I was hired here ten years ago. I wore dressy shoes and my toes were pinched. Owwweee! I guess I need to find more comfortable shoes if I'm going to be hitting the pavement.

Sorry if my posts are sad and kind of depressing. It's hard to stay upbeat when I'm surrounded by people who have worked here for 30 years. What do you put on a resume when you've had the same job for most of your adult life? They don't know any other kind of work.

To Monkey Gurrrrl and anyone else wanting to catch a bargain, keep your eyes open. Right now the discount is only 10%, but if sales slow down (and they already have) discounts will get deeper. I'd say, "I'll keep you informed," but I may not be here past tomorrow.

Here's a message from a neighbor that made us happy and sad at the same time:

I can empathize. One of the major considerations that keeps me here at FatCatLawFirm is the relaxed dress code. If I ever had to put on heels and {{shudder}} pantyhose, I would die. Just DIE, I tell ya!

As far as that farewell message, even though he's long ago sold his interest in the Viper Room, I know that's Johnny's way of communicating with me - see, he *knew* you'd be posting the picture and that I'd see it. He misses me. :)

You don't have to be sorry. It's not easyh to write a new resume when you've only done one thing in your adult life. The upshot is that people will see that you are loyal and that is highly desired in the world today.

I listed each of the titles I held in the company and the years I held them so that people can see that I went through the ranks quickly. Please share that bit of info with your friends. Maybe it'll make someone's day.
