Today, I went for a job interview I scheduled 3 weeks ago. I spent $200 on a new suit to really impress them and practised like crazy every imaginable question they could ask. They already had filled the position 2 weeks ago and forgot to inform me. FML
I agree, your life sucks 32 400
You deserved it 2 809

That sucks. On the other hand, now you have a nice new suit!

Gah, see this is why I HATE interviews. They just treat you like dirt and expect you to lap it up in the hopes of a job.

He can't sue. There's no case. If anything, he'd LOOSE $200.

@ 38 you cannot sue for every thing.

um number 30 he didn't say first

I guess u didn't "practice" how to spell...

38: it's people like you that give americans bad names. sue for everything. sue because you looked at me wrong. please realize there are ways to settle problems outside of a court room and out from behind a lawyer.

FYI, the original comment I replied to said first. js

your right-- since lawyers don't cost $200 n hour n e way... you don't know much about lagalities of situations do you?

Ajjas013 6

Yeah it said first, I was there. He just edited it. And he's a loser.

haha go figure the op spells practice wrong

op try practicing spelling practiced. and @30 you're* grammar Nazi ftw. :P

I've been there. I even had a recruiter for a rather nice software company seek me out and actually FILL the position while in the phone interview with me. Just save the suit for the next big interview.

good idea I had this happen oh and btw fml moderator people there is a flaw in the system because you can vote for both fyl or ydi on each fml.

I don't think that's a flaw... the two really aren't mutually exclusive.

It's not a flaw. It's always been that way, for both VDM and FML, so you can vote for both if you feel the need to. ;-)

She's right; it's not a bug, it's a feature. Trust me on this one; I designed the entire system in one night while drunk on gin.

I hate it when shit like that happens. I went in for a job interview awhile back and was told that they had filled the position. They just didn't want to take the time to call back everyone so they were telling us as we showed up for our interviews. And I am sure that they just had a TON of people to call back for a staff therapist position... really? Are there a hundred other therapist in my town who want to leave their practice? Some places of business are just ******* lazy.

Are you sure you didn't schedule it 3 weeks ago today?

That sucks. On the other hand, now you have a nice new suit!

I hate how you have to act like you give a shit about the company or the position when, in reality, the answer you really want to give to the question "Why would you like to work for our company?" is "Because I like having a roof over my head."

txgirl09 5

YYEEESS! Exactly. Why do I want to work here: Because I like having a house and food to eat.

seriously that sucks but everything happens for a reason maybe something better is out there :)

That sucks, but at least you have a nice suit. Hey, I used to lurk this website a while ago, then quit until now. What happened to all the classic commenters? I guess perdix is plexico, but what happened to intoxicunt, redbluegreen, allmidnighteyes, and the rest of them?

Intoxicunt is still around. Haven't seen the rest in ages.

Oh we're still here, just sneaky is all. (;

I'm still here, but my work got smart and blocked FML. I can attest to it's addictive nature. It's less effective to participate using my iPhone on the 3G network (yeah, the Wi-fi is filtered, too), but I do try my best. I miss Witchcraft and XOfiestypixie :(

perdix 29

Yeah! I've had to pinch hit for him when a story starving for a song reference comes along!

perdix 29

Oh, snick, I use Safari on the iPhone to get to FML. There are no apps I know of that include the Private Messages. That's just about my favorite feature! Our computers at work are so locked down, we can't install any apps. Hell, we can't even change our screen saver! WTF?

perdix 29

And that's kinda backfiring because it takes me so much more time to do it on my iPhone!

#11, I'm here. I only get on to correct people and tell them how stupid they are or make important points though. That is to say I don't get on for humor or chatting lately. I have a job and I'm about to start college. Everyone told me to get a life, so a life I have gotten. ;)

perdix 29

#83. Toxi, they're not as much fun as they look on TV, are they?

Perdix, they have us locked down also. I use my Kindle, it is a little slow but I can tap it over to the dictonary or related material in a flash. No bosses at night but I don't want my crew to see me screwing off. At least the screen is bigger than my touch.

O Toxi, hi there! I know what you mean Perdix-ipo this site can run your life at times, I like how the iPhone app doesn't send you a message eveytime someone comments :D

Omg you sound like the biggest self indulgent narcissistic d-bag I have heard in a very long time, intoxiCUNT.
