Excuse me, who are you again?

So, when I eventually calmed down from the utter and complete RAGE I was feeling in regards to the incompetent, unprofessional, and irresponsible administrator that stood ME UP in the interview that I attempted to attend yesterday, I got to thinking about all of the other ridiculous interview that I have experienced, and the ridiculous interviews that my friends have experienced.

Situation 1

Again, I venture to an interview. Again, I sit in traffic.  This particular Principal asked me to meet her at a coffee shop in downtown Brooklyn. Fine, no sweat.

I get to the interview.

Principal Z asks me, “So you taught at Elementary School 100?”


I look at the resume that she’s holding in front of her hands…



She looks at me…Ummmm what’s your last name again?

I tell her.

Ummmmm, do you have a copy of your resume?

Yeah, sure…here you go.

I MEAN REALLY PEOPLE?? Is it too much to ask for the person who is interviewing you to actually HAVE YOUR RESUME? For them to DO some HOMEWORK?

Absolutely, completely, utterly, F***ING, FRUSTRATED

Dear Friends,

Today is a day for the record books.  It will indeed have to be a three-part entry.  It is AN EPIC FAILURE FOR THE EDUCATION SYSTEM. For the first part know that I drove TWO HOURS for a potential interview.  That is the beginning of this torturous tale.

For now I must go on a very, very, very, long run, to gain a little composure.

That being said…when I came home, ready to rant, I signed into WordPress. I came across this talented writer, who made me laugh after a HELLISH morning.  As a fellow writer, I wanted to point you all her way.  Do take a look at Sarah Leaps, as I found it delightfully funny, particularly inspiring, and, after the day I’ve had it makes me want to do my own version of the freelance hustle.
