My First Job Offer(s)


My ex boss' husband rang me up this morning while I was still sleeping to ask about my exam.

(I have a feeling that he already knew about my results and that's why he rang.)

I told him that I passed.

He then asked whether I'm looking for a job. I was too sleepy to decipher the hidden message, but I kinda sensed that he wants me to work for him.

Since I don't really want to work for them anymore (the wife, especially), I simply said that I'm going home for a long holiday and I'm not planning on working at the moment.

This afternoon, I got another phone call.

The ex colleague's boyfriend, whom I helped out with on Saturday, offered me to work full time for him. He wants me to start right after I get registered, which is hopefully the beginning of next week.

Since he knew that I want to go home for a break, he only asked me to work for a week for now. No long term commitment just yet, on both sides.

I said yes on the phone, because of my inability to say no to people, especially since I've become rather close with his girlfriend.

But I don't really feel like working.

I have to move out by next Wednesday. If I start a full time job next week, I won't have time to pack, get the movers to come in, arrange for a storage place, and do the other two hundred things that I need to do. I might even have to reschedule everything and maybe extend my lease for another week.

Ugh! Decisions decisions decisions.

To work, or not to work.
