Crazy -- I wonder why she wasn't forthright --- I mean for the right person this would be a dream job.
I've asked myself this, and the only thing I can come up with is that she just assumed whatever the job ended up being would be ok with the person.
I was very clear with her that I was simply looking for a couple of days a week, a few hours. I did let her know of course I'd be available if someone else was out sick, on vacation, etc. The way it was advertised, and the way they presented it, I thought it would be the dream job for me.
Maybe if you're a small business owner you just assume even the part time people are just as interested in keeping your business going as you are.
I've always felt responsible and accountable for my work. The months I haven't worked I adapted to the feeling of being free, and letting others be responsible and accountable for a change. It's been very wonderful. I'm not willing to give that up.
You know, re-reading this thread, 9 years ago nimh said he was 33, kicky said he was 37. So now they're about 42 and 46.
Can you imagine kicky being 46?
Then again, 9 years ago I was 46....****.
nimh being 42. No way.
