So, earlier today I was at a job interview (I'm still not sure if I should call it a "job interview" or "a meeting with a potential client." One gives me all the power and the other gives the other person all the power. Personally I like having all the power but I'm not sure if that's realistic here. Okay, I'll call it a job interview.) So, I'm at this job interview, and she asks me something like what I was looking for in a job, and just at the moment when it was time for me to start talking my phone made a chimey noise which meant I had an email, and suddenly my mind goes to my massive to-do list, in particular how I haven't yet finished checking references on these babysitters I'm thinking of hiring. And I was thinking "oh, right, I got those emails I haven't looked at yet, and that woman called me back yesterday so I still need to call her, and I think there's still at least one I haven't even contacted...." and then it's a good 30-45 seconds later and suddenly I'm like HOLY SHIT I'VE BEEN TALKING THIS WHOLE TIME. What the FUCK have I been saying? I honestly have no idea. Something about Bookkeeping, I can only hope/guess.
I usually consider an interview a success if I've made the person laugh at least once; not only did I get to make somebody laugh but I've learned that they have a sense of humor, because if they don't have a sense of humor, I don't want them as a client. So, I was done talking (phew) and I saw that she was laughing. I'm going to assume that she was laughing because I said something funny and not because I said something so incredibly stupid that she just felt sorry for me and it was a pity laugh.
So, how did the interview go, you ask? I have absolutely no idea. But thanks for asking.
