NON-PROFIT REJECT

Well, I am not going to post any level of detail on this for a number of reasons. However, I think I did quite well. But, the environment was just a bit too negative for me. So, in the end, I basically told them that I didn't feel this was a place I would want to work. I think my honesty shook them up a bit, but I was able to walk out with my self-pride in tact. And, ultimately, that is what matters.

Then I went to the beach to clear my head. Much to my relief -- no bird shit. However, I saw a man running down the beach blowing a whistle and a person running behind him screaming. I lifted off my iPod (Stevie Nicks/A. Moyet today) and they were warning the surferes of a shark sighting. The surfers all returned to the shore.

Now, logically --- I know I have nothing to do with the arrival of sharks. However, given my run of luck as of late -- one never knows! Could I be a jinx????? LOL!

CATALYST, Matt, not a jinx. :) It is funny though, that your presence at the shore has met with such coincidences of nature of late, given your general disdain for the non-concrete portions of the world! LOL! xo - k

You should feel quite proud that you followed your instincts on that job.

It is a great thing to know that a job would be wrong for you and to hold out for something better.

You're the Pied Piper of Sharks! Perhaps it was Stevie Nicks, though...

Hey Mate,
Why don't you buy one of those hats that look like an umbrella.
That way you'd have protection from the birds and you head wouldn't look like a toilet to them.
Awesome Aussie
