Mama Deb

This was amusing.

I bought an air conditioner today. The big one in our dining room wall was enough to keep us cool our first summer, but it's old and it's not doing the job anymore, and we finally convinced our land lady of this. Although, we're buying it ourselves.

We kept calling the big appliance place and nothing happened. So, today, I went there. And they went on line and they found the exact model we needed. And while I was waiting for it to happen, I played with my PDA - I'm writing an "accidental marriage" story and it's actually flowing. The salesman noticed and I happened to mention that I type 40 wpm with my thumbs and faster with my fingers. That I was a secretary.

Turns out they needed one. Next thing I know, after I pay for my new AC, to be delivered and installed next Thursday, I'm having a job interview.

They really would have hired me right then, I think, but it's full time and includes Sundays right now. And I can't do that. Also, I couldn't do that to my current employers. And then there's this con thing. But. So funny.

Also tells me that if I need to get a new job, I probably can.
