Re: What's New/The Postman Always Emails Once

WOW so that was quick.

I put in my application at the time I made that post (checks-- at 8:12 am). Emailed Sam (friend's husband) to say that I'd put it in, he said that he'd talked to the principal this morning and that I should call later today while it's still fresh in everyone's mind. So, while I'm planning to do that, the principal called ME just now.
Dude is desperate. It's crazy.

He's like, oh, we can do a phone interview on Monday so that you don't have to travel out here, but your resume looks good and Sam has great things to say about you, I think you'd find that we're a very welcoming and supportive staff, we'd really like to get you on board, so let's work out how to make this happen.

This is the most "in the bag" a job has seemed to me, ever. Seriously had a great little phone conversation just now. He said that he'd also gone through VCU teaching program on the Social Studies track, and then ended up teaching math.

So. Phone interview Monday. I need to set up to take my Praxis next week. I could be in a classroom by week after next.

Whew.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.

Pretty much.

Basic geography, basic graphing/functions, basic beginning algebra.

Early algebra is so much fun for sadistic math teachers. Especially word problems with multiple variables.

Re: What's New/The Postman Always Emails Once

Oh, Crissy! Great for you!

I had a time the other night. I wanted some food from Puelo's Grille, got to their site, read the menu, etc. and called the delivery service. They said I was out of their area. WHAT? If I could, I could walk one block west and point at it. It's just right down there. They said they'd look into it.

I then got an email that said I had misspelled it. I'm like WHAT again. How did I get a menu, a map, a phone number, and an employee on the phone?

I swear, I was beginning to fume, but was not going to give up. Who is stupider?

After about 3 hours, yes, 3 hours, somebody named Elizabeth said she would take care of it. What did I want?

So, eventually, I got my order.

How in Hades did they think I was out of their delivery realm, when it's just down there? How, how, how?

So, today I got another email. I get $10.00 off my next order.

I've used GrubHub, something else slips my mind, but this service is called Bite Squad. I've never heard of them, but I guess it's around here.

In my situation, you would not believe the hellish level of frustration I was experiencing. Please use a hankie, or at least a tissue.

I'm serious, though. I was so puzzled, hungry, and trying so hard to make sense of the situation.
