cuz i know you're all DYING to know...

i'm back from the 2nd interview which i think went EXTREMELY well. having an uncanny ability to store information that i think is useless at the time i'm storing it, i was able to pleasantly surprise them with all sorts of retail lingo like "stock" and "modules" and "stuff" and "the things"....

i was tag teamed by two of the managers at once, and they were both excited at the end of the interview, and seemed quite surprised that i not only knew about "add ons", but was a firm believer in them, and that i THRIVED on busy days and that i had made it through not one, not two, but THREE back to school seasons back when i worked at Wal*Mart in the stationery department, and that each time, i was the ONLY person working in that department, w/o help from any of the others as WELL as performed back up cashier/layaway/paint mixer/fabric cutter/key maker, etc.

there is only two reasons why i would think that they would NOT hire me:

1) they think i am overqualified.

2) they seriously think i was on crack.

what i had MEANT to sound like:

Assistant Manager Tony: so. try to sell me this desk. lessay i walk in here and want a desk, and i walk into this department, and it's your department. sell it to me."

Aubrey: "well, first i would ask some discovery questions. for example, what size unit are you looking for? do you need a lot of storage, or is that not really as important to you? are there particular colors that you need to stick to for your decorating motif? and then i would make sure that you had anything else you may need to go with it, i.e. paper holder thingies, a coordinating pen holder/garbage can/file holder?"

but to my ears, it sounded like:

Aubrey "yip yip yip! um.. uh.. *twitch* yip! yip! YIP! yip yip!!! um.. um... well, uh.. yip!"

i felt like i talked 5 times my normal speed, and that i couldn't form words into sentences. and i was dayum thirsty, so i felt like my colored chapstick was coagulating, which made me lick my lips continuously and try to casually wipe it off without making it into gooey chunks while two men were staring at me and engrossed in my every yip. er, word. i jokingly said "heh, i haven't had nearly enough coffee yet, so i haven't quite woken up, har har!" when they prolly were thinking "yeah, but that like of COKE you did before you walked in the door did you wonders there, lil darlin!"

anyhoo, they said that if for some reason that i don't hear from them by monday, that they will have chosen someone else for the position, but that most likely i will be hearing from them by the end of the week.


now we're back home for a couple few, then it's off to Michael's for yet more torture! oh, the humanity!

yeah, i'm finding that scott and tony both are cases of 'great management material', meaning stereotypes of every pointy haired boss you've ever heard of. they're always mega cool to my face, but the second i need to ask a favor or coordinate something, they get all dickhead on me.

they still haven't sorted my schedule out. all the other cashiers besides me quit, so i'm the only closing cashier left in the entire building. which sucks, because of not having transportation. i HATE having to rely on my mother's feeble minded boyfriend to come pick me up.

in cases like saturday night where i was sitting outside for 45 min after everyone left because he ran out of gas before even leaving the house, proves why.

i so need to move out. and get a cheap car. *sigh*

WHOO HOOO!! You sound like me at interviews...I have to keep telling myself "talk slower than you think you should and it will be right."

When i'm excited/nervous, I'm like a rabid chipmunk on meth with a caffeine overdose.
