I'm living Groundhog Day

Did you ever see the Bill Murray movie, Groundhog Day? Where the lead character lives the same day over and over and over again?

Welcome to my life.

As I mentioned before, I'm job hunting. As part of the process, I'm doing "go sees" at personnel agencies. These experiences have not been pleasant.

Why do I send them a resume? They ask me to repeat all the information on the resume. Each and every blinkin' time.

Then there are the asinine tests. Typing. Spelling. Math. Alphabetizing lists. Yo, people, if I couldn't do these tasks, I wouldn't have been working as long as I have.

By the time I get to the "personal" interview, I'm snarling.

Perhaps this explains why I've never gotten a job through a personnel agency.

Added to the frustration is the fact that I've been hit with bird bombs twice this week. Not once, twice. Once on the sleeve of a new jacket that I was wearing for the first time, fortunately on the way home...and the second time, on the collar of a new shirt while I was on my way to work. Didn't know about it until a kind lady on the streetcar mentioned it to me. So I had to do laundry in the office washroom before I could go in. Thank heavens for those "stain pens", had one in my purse and it proved very useful. Being hit with a bird bomb is supposed to be good luck. For whom? I think those little feathered monsters have it in for me.

Onwards and...onwards.

Whatever you do,don`t look up with your mouth open trying to figure out which one in the flock had a good aim.
Sometimes another one has a better aim!
Happened to me.

It's a plot - they like to see how much BS you can take before you blow a gasket - prepares you for your new job...

As for the birds, they probably know you have become the Crazy Cat Lady and have started a campaign...it has to be new clothes, or right after you've washed your hair and it looks kind of good for a change, or just before you have to give a presentation...where do you think the idea for the Stealth bomber came from?

Good luck with the job hunt...a lottery win would be nice right about now...
