The Daily Teaser — 8-10-2015: In California.

Hmmm … 

Remember me saying I had a job interview, on Monday … ?

I think I can safely say I haven’t bagged it.

Especially as the manager who interviewed me told me they’d be in touch by Tuesday, if they were going to hire me.

I think they were after someone who could start immediately: as well As do the four days of training, needed.

I’m disappointed, obviously.

There’s upsides, though.

I’m feeling rather pleased to have been interviewed: whatever the outcome, it’s done my confidence a favour.

And it’s garnered me a helpful or two thought, from folks at work, on how to deal with another.

All good … !


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: and scoring five out of five.   She also put in her answers for this week’s Weekly Teaser: I’ll have those answers up, next Wednesday.

Moving on, once more: let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How ToLicense and video …
