Interview From Hell

So I get there at 2:15 to drop my resume off, and SURPRISE! They were doing interviews right then. So I had to fill out an application, then wait in line for 15 minutes, before I'm taking to meet the first woman. She was very nice, so I played my happy, cheerful, customer-oriented self. I got complimented on my handwriting. Then she writes a little thing on my application, and asks me if I'd like to go to the second stage interviewer. I smiled, thanked her, and made my way across the store to where the other interviewers were.

There weren't a lot of other people over there, but I met a really nice guy named Shawn. We talked for a good 20 minutes before they called me in, where I re-met Sharon, my first interviewer, and the second interviewer, named Andrew. So he asked me a ton of questions, all of which I did miserably on.

Example One? :
Andrew: "What do you expect from the store?"
Me: "I'm not sure. Nothing, really.I have no set expectations."
Andrew: "So you don't want anything from us?"
Me: "*pause* Besides being paid?"

Example Two? :
Andrew: "Name something you've overcome, and how you did it."
Me: *explains all about getting over my insane fear of heaights and flying by forcing myself to go up in a helicopter* Probably would have been better if I hadn't told him my big fear about that part was getting my head chopped off by the blades. I'm just hoping he understood. I think he does: He's scared of flying too. Poor bastard is going skydiving for his bachelor party. *shudder*

Example Three? :
Andrew: "What do you know about our company?"
Me: "Not much..umm..I've seen the tv commercials, with the happy face going around the store making the prices lower."
Andrew: "Would you believe our store is the largest retail chain in the world?"
Me: "No."
Andrew: "It is. *proceeds to explain about locations all over the world*"
Me: "Oh..wow."

Gah. I can't beleive I was that nervous. I wish I had known that there was going to be an interview. I might have been a bit more prepared then. Hah, I wish. I still would have been that bad.

So, after the interview, I did a bit of shopping. Was insanely hyper and amused by everything. Still am. Except about the fact I have a ton of homework.

But hey!! Some of that homework is: A PROJECT ON PSYCHOPATHS AND SOCIOPATHS!! How amazing is this? I am so excited. It's so much fun to learn about. I wonder if I can write about Everett and Rylly. Probably not.

I finally got a panoramic frame for my gorgeous picture that I took in the clouds, when we climbed Mount Ampersand two years ago. Man, I had so much fun on that trip. And I'm already looking forward to this year's (Lake Placid). All the guys, and Heather and Rachel are going to go on it.

Whiteface Mountain, you bitch, I'm coming back!!!!! Ahahaha!
