Crossed Wires & Miscommunications

First I was dumbfounded.Smiley

Then I was in denial.

Next, I got pretty mad.

And then a lot madder.

To the point of exasperation and wanting really badly to cuss somebody out.

To their face.Smiley

Now, I'm just happy that I have a house to call home, some crappy weather to complain about and lots of other opportunities that are just around the corner.

Yeah, it turns out that somebody didn't get the message across that my husband is NOT at entry level.  In fact, he is only one test away from being an accredited actuary, which is a pretty damn big deal.  And anybody in the insurance industry ought to know that.  Especially after 2 really good phone conversations in which my husband made his goals and skills readily apparent to anyone who might have truly been LISTENING.

At least they could have taken the time to READ his resume.

We wonder what these people must have been smoking.


Sometimes I can only sigh and smile and wonder WTF. Smiley

I guess we'll chalk this up to yet another misadventure in this whole effort to get our butts to Texas.

And hey, at least we didn't have to pay for that plane ticket.....


  1. Oh NO! I am so sad, what a bummer.

    On the bright side, God's still working on y'all. He's got something bigger planned and so, just hang in there and trust that it's gonna be good!


  2. I am sorry. That is a bummer. Happens all the time. Welcome to the new planet Earth.

  3. I don't know why people are so fond of wasting their time and money. So much could be solved by READING.

    I do think that each interview is practice, so something was gained:)

  4. Too bad but I hear the job market is a tough one and a far cry from what it was even a few years ago.

  5. I'm sorry things didn't work out as planned. I'm sure that was a rough day. Good thing you didn't have to pay for the plane ticket. That would have put me over the edge!

    Well I'm guessing that the Lord has something better in line for you...eventually.
    Sure hope it happens soon for ya!

  6. I'm sorry...I bet things get better soon! I don't get people sometimes either...

  7. My sister's husband is trying to find a job here so they can move back to Texas this summer. They are running into the same thing.

  8. Aww, I'm sorry. But as the saying goes, "Something bigger and better is out there!" ---chin up, sweets!
