Drop the Ball II

The thing I find really frustrating is being left hanging.

I don't think there is anything I loathe more than job interviews. Nevertheless, I was ready to go to the interview this afternoon. I was ready to receive either a "yes" or "no" response. "Yes" would have been great, "no" would have been discouraging, but I've been trying to gear myself up for running the interview gauntlet (or, more accurately, gantlet, altho' either spelling is acceptable) over the next several weeks, so I think I could have dealt with a rejection.

It's the lack of a concrete response that's giving me a headache.

Rationally, I know there's nothing more I can do about it tonight. Yet, I'm going to sit here, nervous, on edge, stewing over it.

All I wanted was a "yes" or "no." I don't want to be the cannon fodder in some kind of internecine game of one-upmanship.

I understand the feeling. Best of luck.

And, I'll be sure to use the word internecine today. What a wonderful word!

Wonderful in a macabre sort of way. I like it, too!

Yep doing job-interviews makes you feel like the ball in a pin-ball game.
Bumping around and you never know where you're gone end up.
