Sorry to hear that you didn't get this job. I believe that things happen for a reason and maybe the other job is the one for you. Good Luck.

Don't give up or get down on yourself. Something will come up just for you!!

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

Life has a funny way of sending us disapointments, and then something else comes along and we find that things worked out better than we planned, Keep your chin up!

Sorry about the job. I do believe that there is probably a better one out there waiting for you. Glad to hear you have another one to explore. Hope that one works out for you.

Theta, I know you're disappointed. I've been bummed about things, too, but I hope for both you and me, that better, happier solutions will come our way.

I have the opposite problem. I have 3 positions open and can't find anybody to fill them.

One is a cook's position. I had one guy hired for 3 days before he stopped showing up. He was late each day he was here anyway and on one day he left after an hour, claiming his wife called and she was sick. So he's gone for 4 days and then calls me wanting to know if he still had a job!

I hired a replacement for him, a young guy. He didnt' bother to show up the first day.

Another fella I liked called to see if the job was still open (while the first guy was still employed). I told him it might be open again real soon. After the first guy didn't work out I called this fella and left a message with his roommates 3 straight days for him to come see me. He never did.

Book me on your next cruise and enjoy your personal punching bag.
