I forgot to mention the funny part. Remember when I said I totally screwed up?

I couldn't find the door to the building (it was apparently blocked by trucks). Since I wasn't sure if it was the job for me, I left. I got a call half an hour later and I was so rude to the poor girl. I told her I was there, but couldn't find the door to get in. She said she wasn't sure if she could reschedule me because they set that time aside specifically for me. I told her to "do what you gotta do" so she said she would talk to her supervisor. Obviously they rescheduled me (and described where the door was). So I could go back.

Oh and the truck thing gets even better. I think only me could do this too- because I backed into one of the truck's plastic barrels as I was backing out to leave. It was in my blind spot. Good think it was plastic and no harm done!

How goosey is that? And I think only I would ever use the "I can't find the door" excuse and actually mean it. Actually I've never heard of anyone using that excuse.

Ha ha ha! That's a GREAT way to make an impression, might not have been the proverbial good impression, but it seems it was enough for you to stick out. And maybe your whole, you gotta do what you gotta do attitude made the powers that be think, "Hey, this girl doesn't need our job....what makes her so great? Let's reschedule and find out."
Psychology is funny isn't it?
Oh, and I was going to tell you, I read your other blog, and I really like your potty advice. Like just make a decision, this is the day, and then start.
I have been back and forth with Grant, but after reading how you did it, I was like, I'm going to set a date and just tell him this is the day potty training starts (He has no idea that it isn't teh start of the annual potty training for all kids everywhere!) So, yesteday I brought home a calendar I printed of the 'net and marked Monday the 12th as the date Potty Training starts. I told him, "Grant, Monday is the beginning of Potty Training month and from that day on, you are going to have to start using the potty. That's just when it starts and we have to do it. So, we're going to use pull-ups, and Miss Lisa is going to help you too, and when you go on teh potty, you're going to get stickers, then after so many stickers, you get a prize!" He said, "I get a prize?! I get stickers?! Okay, I no want to do potty though." I said, "Yeah, I hear ya, but the Potty Training starts in Monday and so we have to start that day, but it won't be bad. It's gonna be great! Stickers and prizes and poopy in the potty! This is going to be a great month!"
So, we shall see. I will keep you up to date. But thanks so much for the unsolicited advice!

That is so great on the potty training... Gavin was so so so hard and we went back and forth, too. Once we put our foots down and stuck to our guns (and everyone else did, too) it went by much better. Yeah- little kids are the most adorable thing ever, but I don't miss that at all! Good luck.
