I have done something I never thought I would do. Something I never dreamed I would have to do. Something I thought for sure I would do anything possible to avoid doing. I conquered one of my biggest fears. I went to a job interview while wearing my glasses!
I submitted my resume for a position just because. Unemployment likes it better when you actually try to obtain gainful employment outside of mooching off of the governement, even though the government mooches off us. I never thought I would get a call within two hours of sending my information let alone be scheduled for an interview the very next day. Of course I jumped at the chance for the interview because I was really excited. I didn't even think about my glasses situation until after I hung up. Then it was a little too late.
I thought maybe I could pull off wearing my contacts to the interview. I had three different pair laying around doing nothing so I thought maybe one of them would fit for a hour or so. No dice. I tried them all on but each one ended up with me looking like George Costanza with grapefruit in his eye. I would have winked my way through the interview and that just wasn't going to fly. I had no choice, I had to wear my glasses. The only plus in this was it eliminated the need for me to wear any eye makeup. Bonus!
But I was petrified. After being made fun of like a little handicapped kid by three grown up Barbie doll wannabes previously, I was more than a little nervous about going to a job interview with these crazy glasses on. I've gone to the store, I've gone to a few restaurants, I even did Christmas with the whole family but no where that I was the real center of attention. All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a FREAKSHOW! I thought of canceling the interview.
NO! I could do this. Besides, with some coaching from the hubs and my Mommy I decided if the people at this place weren't going to hire me because I looked like a freak in my glasses then I don't want to work there anyway.
I went to that interview and no one laughed at me. Not to my face anyway. I thought it went really well so we will see. I just cannot believe that I actually did this. I'm a freaking ROCKSTAR!!
