Prayer Requests

Instead of the oh woe is me, I need a job post, I figured I was past due on prayer request for other people, forgetting that A LOT of people have it worse than me.  Here are my requests for now:

Amanda’s little girl, Maddie, has been having some SEVERE allergic reactions to something, but they’re not exactly sure what it is, and can’t get in to the doctor to find out for sure until next Friday. In the meantime, poor Maddie can’t go outside for extended periods of time.  Pray for Mom too, she’ll need the help keeping a 6 year-old entertained!  Also, pray for her small group, it’s just not quite going as she’d hoped.

My mom, she is on the job hunt as well, only up in Michigan, which has had an even worse market than Nashville.

Of course, there’s my jobless self, which needs SOMETHING to happen!  I would seriously take ANYTHING right now, I just can’t be on my feet all day long (due to hairline fractures I’ve had, in my feet, and they never really go away).

I know there’s a ton of other requests, but I really can’t think of anymore at the moment, so feel free to let me know, and I’ll add to the list!  Have a great weekend all!

Interviews Gone TERRIBLY Wrong!!!

This is a list I found from Inbox Humor about things NOT to say at an interview.  I can’t say I’ve done any of these, but these take the cake on craziness!  They asked executives from over 100 top American companies, and ended up with this list (I bolded my favorites):

  • Said he was so well qualified [that] if he didn’t get the job, it would prove that the company’s management was incompetent.
  • Stretched out on the floor to fill out the job application.
  • Brought her large dog to the interview.
  • Chewed bubble gum and constantly blew bubbles.
  • Candidate kept giggling through serious interview.
  • She wore a Walkman and said she could listen to the music and me at the same time.
  • Balding candidate abruptly excused himself. Returned to office a few minutes later wearing a hairpiece.
  • Applicant challenged interviewer to arm wrestle.
  • Asked to see interviewer’s resume to see if the personnel executive was qualified to judge the candidate.
  • Announced she hadn’t had lunch and proceeded to eat a hamburger and French fries in the interviewer’s office.
  • Without saying a word, candidate stood up and walked out during the middle of the interview.
  • Man wore jogging suit to interview for position as financial vice president.
  • Said if he were hired, he would demonstrate his loyalty by having the corporate logo tattooed on his forearm.
  • Interrupted to phone his therapist for advice on answering specific interview questions.
  • Wouldn’t get out of the chair until I would hire him. I had to call the police.
  • When I asked him about his hobbies, he stood up and started tap dancing around my office.
  • Had a little pinball game and challenged me to play with him.
  • Bounced up and down on my carpet and told me I must be highly thought of by the company because I was given such a thick carpet.
  • Took a brush out of my purse, brushed his hair and left.
  • Pulled out a Polaroid camera and snapped a flash picture of me. Said he collected photos of everyone who interviewed him.
  • Candidate asked me if I would put on a suit jacket to insure that the offer was formal.
  • Said he wasn’t interested because the position paid too much.
  • While I was on a long-distance phone call, the applicant took out a copy of Penthouse, and looked through the photos only, stopping longest at the centerfold.
  • During the interview, an alarm clock went off from the candidate’s briefcase. He took it out, shut it off, apologized and said he had to leave for another interview.
  • A telephone call came in for the job applicant. It was from his wife. His side of the conversation went like this: “Which company? When do I start? What’s the salary?” I said, “I assume you’re not interested in conducting the interview any further.” He promptly responded, “I am as long as you’ll pay me more.” I didn’t hire him, but later found out there was no other job offer. It was a scam to get a higher offer.
  • An applicant came in wearing only one shoe. She explained that the other shoe was stolen off her foot in the bus.
  • His attache [case] opened when he picked it up and the contents spilled, revealing ladies’ undergarments and assorted makeup and perfume.
  • He came to the interview with a moped and left it in the reception area. He didn’t want it to get stolen, and stated that he would require indoor parking for the moped.
  • He took off his right shoe and sock, opened a medicated foot powder and dusted it on the foot and in the shoe. While he was putting back the shoe and sock, he mentioned that he had to use the powder four times a day, and this was the time.
  • Candidate said he really didn’t want to get a job, but the unemployment office needed proof that he was looking for one.
  • He whistled when the interviewer was talking.
  • Asked who the lovely babe was, pointing to the picture on my desk. When I said it was my wife, he asked if she was home now and wanted my phone number. I called security.
  • She threw up on my desk, and immediately started asking questions about the job, like nothing had happened.
  • Pointing to a black case he carried into my office, he said that if he was not hired, the bomb would go off. Disbelieving, I began to state why he would never be hired and that I was going to call the police. He then reached down to the case, flipped a switch and ran. No one was injured, but I did need to get a new desk.
  • Asked if I wanted some cocaine before starting the interview.

Just random things about me you may be interested in knowing:

  • My parents originally wanted to name me Katie, however, Christina had a better ring with my middle name, Eba
  • I was born with a congenital hip disorder. That, or the doctor had to dislocate my hip during birth, but either way, it caused me to have to have a pin put in my hip, a few surgeries and full body casts, physical therapy (I had to learn to walk all over again before kindergarten) and a lot of pain.
  • I have been diagnosed with “grossly abnormal” feet! My feet are soooooo wide, I am doomed to tennis shoes FOREVER, and have such difficulty finding shoes anyhow, I wear Men’s 8.5 6E, certifiably wide ass shoes!!!! Unfortunately, my feet are prone to fractures, as a result of congenital hip disorder. I’ve had to have removable casts on both feet, at different times.
  • I tend to stick my foot in my mouth all too often. I have a knack for saying TOO MUCH!!!
  • I truly believe I HATE science and math because I didn’t grow up playing an instrument. I’ve always wanted to play the piano
  • I LOVE black olives, but HATE green olives!!!!
  • I cry when I get the hiccups!!! I always have, and the more I hold back, the more the tears come.
  • My first concert was in 1998, the Backstreet Boys. I was a HUGE fan, and thought Nick Carter and I would live happily ever after. After Paris Hilton, unfortunately, he’s damaged goods!!!
  • I once went to school with a head full of curlers.  It was a psychology experiment, exploring deviation from the norm.  We all had to do something outside of our comfort zones, and my grandmother came up with the idea.  The bus driver looked at me strangely, and the hall monitor said “I hate to tell ya, but I think you forgot to take out your curlers this morning.”  I just chuckled a little and went on with my day.  I wanted to see how people would react at Kroger, but my mother wouldn’t let me! 😦  I got an A on the assignment, which was most important.
