Don't call us, we'll call you!
In this case, they didn't even do that until I bugged enough. I had my interview last Monday, and it seemed like everything went well, so I waited. On Friday, I get a call from another place that I applied at about two weeks prior, but said "I'm still waiting to hear from this other job, so go ahead and try to find somebody else." Well, dumbass me :P. Worried, I called the district office, and ended up leaving a message with the interviewer's secretary, who said "he'll call you back shortly." Well, the phone never rang. Finally yesterday, I called the store in which I applied, and the manager that I talked to wasn't there, so the other dude on the phone said he'd have her call me tomorrow (today) and let me know if she heard anything. She called at about 1:30 this afternoon only to tell me "if we have a position for you, we'll give you a call." Gee, thanks. It took a whole f*cking week for you to tell me that? You couldn't have maybe called me the day after my interview and told me? Or hell, even called me back on Friday and told me? Now I'm still stuck without a job, no source of income, and a trip next month which, come Hell or high water, I am not postponing. I'm going to give the other place a call and ask for an interview. After that, I'll probably go and beg for my old job back at KFC. F*ck me, I swear :P. Oh well, back to C++...
