    So I got called for the longer shift, but here's hoping my place will be open. Read that around 4:45 the fire department got called for a report of smoke. Seems like a transformer blew. Here's hoping thar gets fixed before 5 tomorrow morning.

I thought I'd get used to it, but then I asked why I SHOULD get used to it...

    Got to work and my boss pulled me into his office and asked "I'm totally not promising you anything, so don't get your hopes up, but IF an opportunity arose, would you come to first?" "Yes" "how soon could you come?" "right ****ing now, I was going to talk to you about this soon". Later he announced that a 1st shift guy with my job is transferring. Of course, I totally got my hopes up, the timing seemed too perfect.

    Not happening. Found out today. I mean, there's like a slight glimmer of hope that I might get some improvement in my hours, but I don't know.

    Camping in the rain thinking about this should make for a bang-up weekend.

    Sorry dude. It sucks when you get your hopes up just a little bit to have them taken down.

    I wanted to give you rep, but I guess I can't for awhile. It made me laugh. I should have said recipes for baby food.

    Is that kosher? I can give them the deadlines for my other offers but the company names too?
    In a recent job interview I was asked how old I was, if I had any future marital plans, if I had a girlfriend or not and how much of a drinker/party guy I was.

    Technically, those questions are legal to ask. It's if they use your answers to discriminate against you as a candidate is when it's illegal. (I know, how do you prove that?)

    Let me hunt for a link and post it.

    Edit: Here's the link...question #2

    I'm pretty sure the age thing is completely illegal. The others you can skate around but it's still awfully gray.

    Unless there's an age requirement for the job.

    The thing is, with me having dropped out of college for some years and having just graduated this past May, I'm a 28-year-old looking for an "entry-level" position against people 3-6 years younger than me.

    In my situation, I don't really know (and really can't prove) if an employer would choose someone younger than me, if they knew how old I am.

    Question #4 on that link pretty much answers everything. The place I interviewed with was also a non-profit, four full-time staff members.

    I'm literally the only person in my company in the state of Hawaii that has to work tomorrow. So I'm having my 8am video call with my boss and probably calling it a day around lunch time.

    Take what she says with a grain of salt. Auntie KC was actually around back in the day when they had to crank and wind cars by hand for them to run.
