Excellent Phone Manner - Part 2

Posted by Unknown |

So the phone calls from the unknown caller have kept coming. I was sure it was just someone out to prank me.

Then I got another one this morning. Expecting the usual "Hello?" "Beep. Beep. Beep." I picked it up and said a jolly, slightly sarcastic "Hello". And there was someone on the other end.

It was a person from the Government, wanting to interview me for a position I applied for. If I get it I get to work with trains. Yes! She gave me a phone interview, and I was nervous and not expecting to be interviewed and did a bad job. But they want me to come in for further information and training in a week and a half at 7:30am on a Sunday morning. It's exciting. But I'm wondering why I need to be given information at 7:30am on a Sunday morning. I'm pretty sure they're giving us a taste of what working for the railways will be like. Doesn't bother me though. I'm up at 7:30am all the time. At least I've done it once this year.

Anyway, it seems that Howie's previous lack of decorum on my behalf didn't destroy my chances of getting at least an interview. That's good.
