So two weeks ago I had an interview for a job and they hired me and said I would start on the 15th. That was great. Well now for the last two weeks it seems like they’ve called me almost every morning with some new problem I needed to fix or some other paperwork they needed me to fill out before I could be cleared to start. Annoying but not much of a problem until now.
Wednesday morning they called me and told me they needed me to call my previous employer and make sure that they would take the call from the background check agency and that I absolutely needed to call before noon. I was told that as soon as I did that everything was done and I was good to go. So I called and assumed everything was fine. Then yesterday morning they call and tell me that the background check place still hasn’t finished their stuff so they’ll have to call me Monday morning to let me know. It’s very frustrating to not know if I’m going to be starting a brand new job up until the morning that I’m supposed to be there.
Now the good part of my rant, my boyfriend is absolutely wonderful. With everything being so up in the air about this job I’ve been kind of stressed out. The call yesterday morning basically just set me over the edge. I was upset about not knowing still so he got up and made me breakfast in bed and told silly jokes until I was laughing. He later went out to bring back dinner and surprised me with a couple of movies I’ve been dying to see.
Sorry it’s so long, I just needed to say it all. It’s nice to know that no matter what is going on in our outside lives, he’s always there to make me smile and make things better. I’m a lucky girl 🙂
