One Earring’d Interviewee – An Interview Story

July 3, 2012 by Lady Unemployed

Well, I went on my interview Monday and I thought it went pretty good!

Yup…pretty good.

Pr-ett-IE goo-Dah.


This can only happen to me.

Is this happening because I have a blog about it? Is that jinxing me, or something?

Okay, it went like this.

I go into the interview and three people are there to interview. Totally fine.  And I can’t help but notice one of the managers (a guy around my age) keeps eyeballing me. Now, I know I look good all stylish, but trust me, this was not a “I’m checking you out” look. This was a “what the hell is wrong with you” look.

I didn’t think anything of it at the time. I complete the interview. You’ll hear from us blah-blah-blah.

Two hours later. TWO. HOURS. LATER.

I am home and I look in the mirror.


My Right Ear Looked Something Like This – Earringless.

My right earring wasn’t there.

What the hell happened?

How could I have not checked?

Now, I’m certain that an interviewer wouldn’t turn down a candidate because they are sitting there without an earring, but people this is ridiculous. I must have looked like such a total dork sitting there, jabbering all confident with my earring gone.

I’m not going to obsess.

And if I happen to get the job, I promise I won’t ask them if I lost my earring during the interview.

On an entirely different note, there is a worker at my unemployment coffee shop that doesn’t know my name and keeps calling me by the same “wrong” name each time I see him. It’s been like that for weeks. And the uncomfortable thing is – he’s the only one who doesn’t know my real name. The other workers do. What should I do about that situation?

Anyways, that’s another post for another day.

Now, I’m off to look for that cursed earring.

Oh, and Happy 4th of July everyone!


  1. Hi – Only You and ME could have things like That happen!! I Totally ‘relate’ to your plight! Hope you find your earring – and get the job! I have several ‘singles,’ also – perhaps we could start a Fashion Trend – mismatched earrings! ;-}

  2. And me 3! It always happens at weird times also. At least we are not alone. The earring goblin is as bad as the dryer sock monster sometimes. Maybe worse even since no one can see the dryer monsters work other than you!
