So I got fired from my last job. Was supposed to have an interview. My GPS would not work, I wound up driving in circles & being lost. Fast forward I had to call & say I would like to cancel & reschedule. Looks good its pretty much a guarantee I''ll get the job, plus I also have that offer job lined up, the one where I went to see the hiring manager with panties with holes So the unemployment is temporary so dont attack me there!!

So this girl I know, I dont even know how to start about our ""friendship"". But her daughter fell ill a while back & I was shocked when she called me & asked me to visit her daughter at the hospital. Now I just considered myself acquintances with her so I was shocked that she was ""begging for visits"". I realised she was pressed for friends so I went to visit her & her daughter at the hospital anyway. Since that day we have been talking more & more.

So today right after I had cancelled the interview & was on my way home, this girl calls me & asks if I wanna have lunch with her. So I pick her up, we go to the last place I got fired at as I forgot some stuff & we head out to lunch. On the way to my former employer I slightly hit the car in front of me. Thank God zero damage! Nonetheless I apologize to the car owners & all is good!

At this point she starts to ""direct "" me about how I should drive. And she starts announcing what colors the traffic lights are. This got me heated up. I become the bigger person & don't point out that I have been licenced to drive since I was 16 & she is not!Anyway doe when we get to my former place of employment I ask her to stay in the car & wait as I wont be long. Next thing I see her coming out of the car. I let it slide. As I pick up my stuff, she extends her hand & introduces herself to my former boss. I wanted her to to stay low & chill in the car. She had on this synthetic hair & her ""tracks"" were showing & she just looked greasy! I had been honest with her & told her her hair looked like a bird's nest & she agreed to that herself. Now I dont see why she would embarass me at my former job. I wanted to leave with dignity

So we head for lunch. And she is generally chronically unemployed & her husband is also presently unemployed During lunch (Chinese buffet) she dips EVERYTHING even shrimp in hot sauce. After lunch the waiter comes and asks if the bill is altogether or separate. She offers to pick both tabs. Normally I feed on people like this but I guess I still have a conscience so I tell her lets each pay for ourselves. Then it gets awkard because she had already asked for one bill & the waiter had made a bill for one & now I HAVE TO start calculating my part in my head!

After lunch we hop onto my car & I have my second accident of the day. Just as I reverse I hit another car. I look around, my car has a huge dent & the other one is miraculously okay.

At this point I start asking myself: What kind of tomfoolery is this? Who ever has two accidents in one day? Then I realise both accidents had something in common. This ""friend"" of mine was in my car.

I ask if I can drop her at the train station. She suddenly wants to pee & hates public bathrooms so of course it has to be done at my place!

We go to my place. She marvels at the mansion. Nothing new there. Then I start telling her nothing grew on trees, the SO & I both work. She knows I was let go but she has seen my hustle so no big deal. And I lecture her about her marvelling & oogling everything yet she & the hubby don't like to work. I guess that's when she gets tired of me & wants to go home.

Now this girl has the nerve to ask me to drive her home.
1) Remember she said I could not drive, was telling me when traffic lights changed colors etc? And suddenly her greasy behind wants a ride home? But I can't drive!

2) I have gone to two places with her and had two accidents. She is bad karma. Why would I drive her home just so I can have another accident?


3) When the SO gets home, he tells me in between the lights & the dent, fixing my car should be about 1500bucks. Then I realise I should have let her pick the whole bill at the restaurant. She got a free ride I got her bad karma plus her free ride is gonna cost me a lot of money.

4) When the SO analyzes the damage he complains about how expensive I am becoming instead of being grateful I survived an accident & came home unscathed.

What a bad day! END RANT!!

An unemployed heifer. Pot, meet kettle.

BTW, you "may" drive, but anybody who hits two cars in one day certainly can't do it well.

Have you considered therapy?

I can't get past the first paragraph, where you call to cancel the interview instead of asking directions how to get there.

The whole world is going to hell in a handbasket, I swear...

I just wrote you guys an essay. So I condensed everything. As long as the post was, it was still a summary so I DID ask for directions, & was on the road from 8:45 to 11 for a 10.00 appointment because

1) Navigator did not work so I had to rely on barely existing & inaccurate signs
2) Well meaning but stupid well wishers. I stopped by a gas station. It was pretty busy, coffee drinkers, gas tankers etc. I aasked where this place was. Everybody said to go straight. I took that direction. Minute I got there, found out I was lost.

I wish people would just say they do not know where a place is instead of pretending to be helpful.

Now do you realize that if I had gone into detail instead of summarizing everything, I might as well of written a novel??
