I said... thanks, but NO thanks

The phone, the phone IS ringing...

What, what is your decision about THE JOB?

I said...... thanks, but NO thanks.

AAARRRRGHHHHHHHH!!!! ...the sound of screams reverberating off of the San Gabriel mountains.

It is 9:15am Monday morning.

I believe my recruiter has begun JackO'Clock early.

The whys of my decision to be continued...

  1. I'm late to this party but I went back and read the details - I can't wait to hear what lead you to your decision...

  2. Good for you! How's E feeling about all this?

  3. I'm glad you made a decision- sounds like you are happy with it to, which is the best thing!

  4. Send your recruiter a bottle. :-)

    Sounds like you made a decision that feels right for you.

  5. Good for you--you seem at peace with your choice :)

  6. Gut choice? If so I think it must be the right choice!

  7. This just educated me to read ALL the recent posts before I just start commenting. But congratulations on taking my advice before I gave it.

  8. And, oh, yeah, I am SO stealing that cartoon.

  9. Okay just so I understand...jack o'clock early is 9:15? Man you are west coast!

    Looking forward to the details.


  10. I agree...
    The recruiter deserves a bottle!
    You deserve a party too!
    Funemployment, Whoo Hoo!!!!!
    Blessings, EJT

  11. "2 roads diverged into a wood..."

    No matter which path is taken, there is bound to be some regret.

  12. Good for you dear. It's tough to say no, but I think you'll be glad you did.

  13. Good decision! I think the right thing will come along at the right time.

  14. I feel your struggle. But way to go girl! You won't regret your decision!

  15. Whew! When I read that your would-be boss is "a perfectionist" AND "very set in her ways" AND "blunt" ..... then the former assistant with the "bad attitude" ? my thought was, run away, run very far away.

    Point #2: I've got 3 kids and a P/T job I find very rewarding, my hand-picked career. Yet, I cannot imagine working F/T. I don't have enough time/energy as it is. I'm not a very organized, efficient person, maybe that's why. Hats off to all those F/T working moms who successfully juggle it all. I don't see myself being happy doing that (or my family). Purely the logistics.

  16. Good for you! When the time is right there will be a job out there for you.
