Oh, silly me. I thought it was because you stopped looking every time you thought you might get a job you liked.

Do you seriously think WPD really believes what he is saying? He is just an attention ***** that wants a reaction from people. I have never seen a logical response from this kid. If he truly believed half of what he says, then he really is an idiot. But I will give him the benefit of the doubt that he is simply an attention *****

At 38 I'd hardly describe him as a kid and while a couple of your assumptions are correct, others are definitely not! Stick around.

I had an interview with two managers and did ask when I would know the manager did say 20 minutes after I got home.

Sure enough he did hire me and they also had to do a background check on me but he said it would be fine.

Another interview I had I had to wait for 2 days since he had three more people to interview but said so far I was best suited for the job. However, I did decide that was not the job I wanted.

Beware of posters with low Rep-to-Posts ratios.

Now why would you say something like that?
