It started early morning, I picked up the phone nervously call the restaurant I wanted to apply at. The manager answered, I told him I would like to come by to drop off my resume. I asked, ” What time should I visit?” “around 3:30”, he replied. I also told him I recieved an email from the other manager, Terri. In her email recieved last Thursday 4:25pm, she has told me to drop off my resume this week. On friday, I went in to hand in my resume and gave it to the hostess working. Terri wasn’t in because it was her day off. After I left the doors, crossed to street to get to my bus stop. As I was waiting for the bus, pulled out my Blackberry. On my Blackberry, I usually have emails from my hotmail sent to me. From Terri’s email, I reply that I had left her my resume on March 2nd and around 1:30ish. I did this because I know I really want the job and was worried she wouldn’t have it.
So back on March 5th,I was planning on going to see the Manager at 3:30pm. Took the 137 bus early, I was properly dressed and was sure my confidence was there. 2:30ish: I was on the bus, I got a call from the restaurant. It wasn’t Terri, but another manager told me come by 5:15pm instead of 3:30pm because Terri won’t be there till then. I agreed and told him ok, I was almost already there. I made the decision the stay within the area and waited until it was time to go there. As time went by, I walked around in the snow and kept looking back to my phone staring at the time. The places I had gone to were slow and dead. At 5:07, I got anxious and excited to go into the restaurant to talk to the manager. The hostess seated me to a table and told me to wait. I waited for a few minutes, praying I will be successful and ready. I was smiling and know I can do this. As the Terri came in, I stood up and reach out my hand for a hand shake. Introduced myself and smiled of course. She was shaking mine as well, but she finally told me, “Sorry, the position has been filled.” My smiled disappeared and my heart dropped. “We have your resume on file” she says. All I told her was “thanks for letting me know” Terri then had left, leaving me alone at the table. I quickly walked out trying to hold my tears. As I got out into the snowy weather, I stood in front of the restaurant, I burst into tears. I felt like I got buried in a Avalanche. That is why I am upset, I hope things will get better.
