I interviewed for a new job on Monday.
It couldn't have gone better.
Seriously - I ROCKED it!
But I didn't get the job.
Not a lot of people knew that I was applying and interviewing for this job, but there were a handful of them.
Some of those, I told right away. Others asked how the interview went today and I had to break the news.
Nearly every person said the same thing. Some variation of, "Wow - their loss."
And let me tell you - that's nice to hear.
Rodney Carrington has a comedy bit about funerals, it goes something like:
"Funerals are awkward…They always try to make you feel better by saying, 'He's gone to a better place.' Well what if he was an asshole? What do you say then? Shouldn't have buried him in the sweater…"
So I got to thinking, were people just saying the job interview version of "He's gone to a better place?"
I hope not.
