Ouch. Well, congrats on your interview! I hope you get the job!

The people in your life didn’t sound very supportive today! I know sometime when I’m in a bad mood every little thing someone says sounds bad to me, even if they didn’t mean it that way. I’m sure they are proud of you they probably are just too wrapped in their own stuff to really listen! I hope your Boyfriend or Best Friend comes around and has some time to listen to you!

First, congratulations!! Fingers are crossed that this will go well for you!!

Now for what you asked for:  It could be that they don’t want to get your hopes up after such a long job search.  I know I get really superstitious about getting my hopes up and am often not so excited to others to not encourage them to get their hopes up as well.  It could also be that they’re tired of hearing about your until-this-moment unsuccessful job search and didn’t fully open up their ears to hear that this is really good news!!  It sucks that they can’t be as excited as you are right now, but I’m sure this will change if you do land the job.

Awwww, that sucks! I don’t think you are being overly sensitive at all! I mean, a second interview that you rocked after being out of work for a year and a half, that is HUGE!! Congrats!! I really hope you get it! I am sorry that people aren’t realizing how big of a deal it is for you, because it is. In the case with your Boyfriend or Best Friend, I would sit him down and flat out tell him that you would like to talk to him about YOUR day. Tell him how important it is to you. Sometimes I have to straight up put myself first like that in cases with Darling Husband. People just tend to get caught up in their own lives sometimes. This happens to me a lot too. Good luck, and best wishes in your *maybe* new job!

COngrats on the interview, hope you get it!!

Sometimes people are just too wrapped up in their own things to hear the new news. But if I were you, and my Boyfriend or Best Friend did that to me, I would lock eyes, and tell him he needs to pay attention to what you have to say! Sometimes I have to do that with the hubs, but then I know I have his full attention. You gotta snap them out of it sometimes

Any adult is uncool to a 15 year old. That’s just life. Good luck with the interview!

Good for the 2nd interview!!! Way to go!!!  I totally understand.  I hope you get it-and you don’t have to wait long for the answer. . .

cause I’m still waiting to schedule #2

and just ignore the 15 year old.  🙂

Congratulations on your second job interview! I’ll cross my fingers for you!

I get where you are coming from and I don’t think you are being hyper sensitive. It sounds like a crappy day and all you wanted to do was share a bit of good news. I recently had this happen to me as well, and I completely agree that it is a huge buzz kill – especially since I was having a meltdown of my own, and instead of the person I called helping me through it, they interrupted me and had a meltdown themselves.

edit: Just saw you got the job! Congratulations again! You go girl! Laughing
