What's Meant to Be...

I received an email yesterday from the company I had the interview with.  The email said they would not be offering me a position.  This irked me for a few reasons.

1.  Are you really going to tell me no in an email?  I think that's kind of rude!  I mean I took the time to talk to you on the phone for over 30 minutes, and went in the same day for an interview.  Then I get a "no thanks" in an email?
2.  Why not?!  You sure made it sound like it was almost a sure thing while I was talking to you, and even told me about how the next step would be a shadow shift.  Why tell me that, and act like that and then tell me you aren't going to hire me?  You could at least give me a reason!  To say in the email "we were very impressed with your skills and experience." and then to say "unfortunately we aren't going to be offering you a position." is like saying "you're perfect, but no."  It just doesn't make sense.

But I guess it's meant to be.  Just means I'll have more time this summer for the pool and fun.  I was concerned about how I would do everything anyway, so this just means it's for the best.

I went to the gym last night and did my 20 minutes on the elliptical, then did the weight machines and then another 20 minutes on the bike.  I was so proud of myself.  I really could have stayed longer, but I knew I had to get home since it was already just about 10pm and I knew hubby had to go to bed. When I walked through the door I told my husband how I had added 20 minutes on the bike to my workout.  You want to know his response?

"I probably still burned more calories then you."  He then proceeded to show me "before" and "after" pics of him.

I seriously almost started crying.  The tears welled up in my eyes and I held them back.  Yes he has lost more weight then me.  But he isn't eating!  He's seriously taking in maybe 1100 calories a day.  He has a fruit smoothie for breakfast, a protein shake for lunch, and then he has dinner (which usually consists of a small piece of chicken or meat, and a cup or two of a veggie.)  I keep telling him that yeah, he's lost more weight then me, but as soon as he starts actually eating again it will all come right back.  Still doesn't make it hurt any less with the lack of support I'm getting and the comments he's making.  I mean seriously, how hard would it have been to say "great job!" or "that's awesome!" when I told him about adding an extra workout in?  So thanks dear.  Thanks a lot for the support.

So as you can tell yesterday wasn't a very good day for me! LOL  Here's to hoping today is better!

Heather dear,

Why not call the woman you originally talked to and ask for feedback? Tell her that you are looking for constructive feedback for the next job you apply for? I think you at least deserve to know what happened!

Blessings sweet lady!
