How Hard is it to Just Tell the Truth?
How hard is it for parents to just tell you the truth? I applied for a position through one of those online babysitting sites. The mom e-mailed me, and we set up an interview, to meet her and her kids. We met, and I think it went well. The mom said she would e-mail me with a few days and times to do a trial run, that night. Well, that never happened. I e-mailed her, after a few days, to tell her I was still interested in the open position, and asked about setting up that trial date. If she didn’t want to hire me, fine, but don’t tell me you are going to set up a trial run, and then go M.I.A. Even if she didn’t want to tell me face to face, at least tell me she will think about it, and then e-mail me later that she doesn’t think it will work out. How difficult is it to tell someone the truth, rather than lie, and then disappear? I guess I should be lucky I even got an interview, being a guy, even though I am a teacher, and work in the nursery most Sundays…
