oh no you didn't just say that....

....some people. oh.mah.god., you know how i talked to the friend who *might* watch my kids *if* i should get a new job? well, she told one of her friends, whom i know, and can't really stand. she didn't mean it to be spouting *my* business, but *hers*...which i wasn't aware of, nor did i care about....until....i saw the "friend" in the neighborhood park today (the old 'hood), as i was returning a blanket *to a daycare child*. you know where this is headed, don't you? well, if not, fear not, dear reader, for i will tell you. she says (in front of the daycare mom, in case you hadn't figured that out already), and i quote...."i hear a congratulations are in order."

...yes, not being a great liar, i told the daycare mom that i'd interviewed for a job.

...good lord, why do people keep doing things like this to me??? this is the second time i've explained to the SAME mom that i've been looking for a different job.......

I hate gossip and people who run their mouths, it's frustrating, and nowadays it seems that you have watch very carefully who you talk to and what you say. How sad :(

I suppose it's better then the Mom know know that she might be looking for a new Day Care provider then at the last minute...

I mean, don't you feel responsible to at least tell your parents you're looking for a new job?

anonymous....i love it when people decide to not reveal themselves when they're playing devil's advocate....

....i am going to give my families two weeks to a no...i don't feel responsible to tell them that i'm looking for a new job...cos if i don't get this particular job, i'm not going to look for a while. this was a bit of a one-off. the last time this happened, she new full well that i was looking.

thanks for stopping time, feel free to reveal yourself... ;)

yeah really, like what would you do? Jump through the screen and pop him/her if they weren't anonymous?

As long as you give them notice, NONE of their business.

And they have to know how stressful and time sucking a job it is!
