Good Morning! And to all my fellow Canadians, happy “Thursday”! (Canada Day *aka the best day ever* is Friday!)
This is Canada Day in Ottawa. It is the best/craziest/BEST experience a Canadian could ever have!
Thanks for the well wishes on my interview. I think it went well, and they said they would call me Friday. My references have all been called, so it’s just a waiting game now. I really, really want the job!
Clearly with my excitement, I have told a few people about the details of the job and how much I want it. For the most part, people say “good luck!” and that’s that. However, I have encountered some people who just make me want to scream.
I have told some people about the job and have gotten some of the following responses:
“That will be too hard for you”. **Ummm….no. It might be too hard for you, but it is what I went to school for. That’s like saying a Doctors work will be hard. It will be, but that is why they are a Doctor!
“You don’t want to drive that far for work”. ***Ummm….actually I don’t mind. I knew where the job was when I applied.
“You won’t like it”. **Remind me when you started feeling my emotions please.
I get really flustered when people say things like this, because I don’t want to start a big commotion, but at the same time, are you serious? Did this kind of conversation become acceptable and I just missed it?
I am all for debates. I am all for critical thinking. What I am not for is telling someone how they feel, what they are capable of, or what they like. I would honestly rather have someone call me fat, stupid or ugly then tell me I am incapable of doing something.
So this was a bit of a rant, but I needed to get it off my chest. Phew! Better now.
On a happier note, if you are a fan of the Fast and Furious movies, go see Fast Five. It was a goodie! (Another good thing about small town Chilliwack? The local movie theater only costs $3.50 per person!)
Have you had any recent run ins with rude people? How do you react? Are you a Fast and Furious fan??
