Bit like buses. You don’t get them for a long time then suddenly they come in bunches.

I had interview one a couple of days ago. Yesterday I was interviewed for a different job. Tomorrow I’ll be interviewed by yet another company.

I was beside myself looking for enough clean business shirts. Fortunately that’s OK. I’ll just have a fun time washing them when this is over.

I think I looked a site before I got changed for my first interview. Looking like a deadbeat in jeans and unshaven. Then I was off in my nice woollen suit after a shower and a shave. It’s always a bit of an anti climax after the interview. I’m sure they went OK though.

Always being nervous having a bite to eat while wearing my suit and tie. Making sure I don’t have pasta with any kind of sauce.

Peter, for a lot of college graduates, blue and white collar folks the notion of an ‘interview’ is beyond them here right now….............never mind keeping a shirt laundered!  That you’ve had THREE of these is reason to celebrate!

Yes but think of the ironing I have to endure.

Plus I seem to have gained a small amount of weight. At least that’s what my suit jacket seems to be telling me as I button it up.

You are just buttoning the middle button right?  The ironing will help you lose those couple pounds!

Yeah, you always only button the top button if it’s two buttons, middle if it’s three. If it’s a bit snug, go ahead and leave it unbuttoned.

But the watch is also very important. If you want to be dressed like a gentleman, you must wear a watch. Of course, it’s not necessary to buy a new watch to be well dressed. Used watches are as elegant as new ones.

One job interview seemed a bit too suss for words. I’ll see how it turns out.

The first job interview didn’t work out. The last job interview seems promising.

And the verdict is???

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
