Hags Always Seem to be Allergic To Cool Women Like Me

Today at work we had all moved to new seats because we are expanding.  Since my supervisor didn’t put me down for a new seat since I’ll be leaving the department he told me to just sit in one of the empty seats assigned to one of the new hires that will be joining the team later.  So I sit next to this older woman who shall we say is the negative Nelly on the team.  Always has something to bitch about.

Haven’t Even Started and I’m Knocking The Socks Off Him

I don’t start my new trainer position until Monday so I’m still on the phones.  In fact they still haven’t announced it yet – they seem to really drag their feet on this process.  Anyway… the other day the manager I’ll be reporting to had me go in his office along with my supervisor.  He basically was giving me his vision with the trainer role and how it plays into the sales floor, employees, company vision yadda, yadda, yadda.
 
At one point he started giving me his impressions of me and my presentation when I interviewed.  He was saying, and I quote, “I didn’t expect the presentation you gave.  It took me by surprise.  That’s a good thing by the way.  It showed me that you are passionate, fun, outgoing and professional.”
 
Yeah, that was my “HR walking nightmare” (to quote Vox) Kiss presentation he was talking about.

Were You Dropped On Your Head?

There was one guy on one of my dating sites a while back who stood me up.  I can’t remember if I blogged about it or not and I’m too lazy to look it up.  Two dudes have done this, set up dates and then were no call no shows.  Yes.  It amazes me that there are people like this in our world.  Men in their 30’s and 40’s doing this really rude crap.  I mean, you can’t pick up the phone and call?  Even if it is to say you changed your mind?  I’d have a hell of a lot more respect for you if you called to say that instead of being a low life chicken shit.
 
So this one in particular, I let him have it on email.  He responded back with some lame bullshit of course and then tried to be all nice and set up another date.  I said no thanks and then blocked his profile.  Turned out he had another profile and tried emailing me there.  I told him to get lost and blocked that one.
 
Now some months later he has a new profile and has emailed me again with this message….
“like to meet up I have the day off for work will do my very best to win you over and make up for my unescuse of not showing will be fun think it over 623-XXX-XXXX mike”
 
Can you believe the nerve here?  Some of you may be saying everyone deserves a 2nd chance but I have to say HELL NO to that.  You no call no show on a planned date?????  Fuck you!  Making a girl get ready doing her hair, makeup, nice clothes and not showing up or calling is so NOT the thing to do!!  There is no way in hell someone who does that gets a 2nd chance.  Then how would this person treat me going forward?  No thank you.
 
I haven’t responded to this jerk yet.  Just wondering what to even say before blocking him yet again.  Or if I say anything at all.  I can’t believe the nerve. 

Let The River Run – I’M A WORKING GIRL!

Well it only took 2 years, 5 months and 19 days to finally get a professional training job again.  The good news is that it’s a professional trainer position in a company that is reputable, full time, full benefits, M-F and only 15 min from my house (that’s a miracle in Phoenix).  The down side is the salary is a lot less than what I was expecting.  When I first went for the Trainer job to begin with months ago, the recruiter told me my asking salary was in line with a senior trainer role.  Now that they didn’t hire me the first time, brought me in as a rep and now promoting me to a trainer job, it’s a way different story!  I have to be honest and say that pisses me off.  We are talking a 24k difference. 

Duck Tales (with pictures!)

I think some days ago I had tweeted how some of the ducks from the lake have been making appearances on my street lately.  It’s a sweet looking couple.  They keep showing up at the house next to mine in the mornings when I leave for work and this morning one of the geese were there too.  Weird.

Wonder If That Will Hurt My Quality Score

So I get another flirty caller on my phone at work today.  He had a sexy accent that I couldn’t quite place at first.  It wasn’t Aussie, it wasn’t quite British but it had some of that in it.  Turns out he was born in South Africa (so kinda like that Leo DiCapprio thang in Blood Diamond).  Travels quite a bit to London for work.  Has a big ass house in Malibu, CA.  And he happened to mention he is single.  He calls to renew his contract.
