Just a few moments ago I was called into a manager's office where I was told that he was not getting a job we both hoped he would get.
He hoped he would get it so he could move on. I hoped he would get it because I really wanted his job. :) Looking at the people that were eligible for his job, I was the most qualified person to step into his place.
So I sent out a text message to some people that knew about this possible opportunity - just to let them know that it didn't pan out after all.
The silver lining? At least I have a job.
EVEN more of a silver lining? My mom, who does not text and is not the most computer/technology literate person, texted BACK "rats."
How cute is that? My mom actually texted. :) And it was one of my mom's typical mom-isms. She's proper - so she doesn't say curse words...just something along the lines of "fiddlesticks." I just can't get over how cute that was.
So as bummed as I am about the discouraging news, I'm so happy I have a supportive silly mom. :)
