I don't like sports, don't know a softball from a cake of soap.
Oh don't get me wrong, she's nice, very nice. So is the husband. I like them both. There's more to it than just these emails. BTW, when I read some of them to my husband, he laughed, but along with some other stuff I told him about the initial phone conversation w/ the husband, and the interview, we've both come to the same conclusion.
I've always worked for larger companies, or corporations.
This is a Really small business. You know all those questions you're not supposed to ask during an interview? Well, I was asked several of them, but in such a way that I realized it was totally innocent. They just don't realize you don't ask such things. In a nutshell, they are guileless. There weren't trying to inappropriately get information, I could tell there was nothing furtive going on.
Oh, like at the end of the interview, I pulled out some reference letters I'm actually very proud of. They said "Oh, I don't think we need to see that." They tried to make out like they were seeing other people, but I'm 99.9% sure they didn't, they just liked me and hired me without checking prior employment, references or anything like that.
When she was showing me an excel tool they used that was extremely basic and simple, I could tell she thought it was the best thing since sliced bread, and said to me "Don't worry, you'll get the hang of this in a couple of weeks."
Ha...another thing she asked was "Do you have access to email at your home?"
Stuff like this.
I'm leaving in a while, on a logical level I'm sure this is going to be a good fit for both of us. I want a few hours of work a few days a week, nothing that will disrupt my sleeping in, swimming or watching netflix, and they need me.
Wally seems to think she's nervous about hiring a new person....he's probably right.
Wally is just always right. <snort>
