My last two weeks  
So, starting a couple weeks ago... I call in to the temp/placement agency again, asking if I should call the firm where I interviewed. And was told "No, they just emailed and decided to go with somebody else for the position." This is after I was asked to interview for this job. For the second time. We'd talked about what hours I'd work, for fuck's sake. So I said fine, whatever, and hung up.

They called back a few minutes later. The firm had called and asked if I could come in and temp for a week.

Great. Thanks.

So I said yes, and went in last Monday. Waited for half an hour for someone to pick me up from reception, only to be met with "There's been a terrible mistake. You weren't supposed to come in till tomorrow."

What. The. Fuck. Ever.

I did take the chance to quiz the girl about who got the job, and she said "Oh, they DID pick someone, but after checking on some stuff, decided not to go with him after all. So the position's still open. I don't know what they're doing."

Good GOD.

So I came back in on Tuesday, did my job, went home. Came in Wednesday, managed to finish the job they thought would take a week. Before I left, I talked with the boss. Said I wanted to clarify, that just because I'm taking the bar doesn't mean I don't want this job. The bar is my backup plan. I said these words: "If I can avoid being a lawyer, I will." And reiterated I believe I am the best person for this job, and I would like to work there. She thanked me for letting her know.

So. Down, further down, down some more, back up, and down a bit. Is it any wonder I'm slowly losing my mind?
