    Got my first interview in since I don't remember when. It was a 45 minute drive up there. The guy talked to the previous interviewee 15 minutes into my scheduled time, let me talk 3 minutes and said thanks much, but lets not waste each other's time any more.

    According to my GPS, that little trip cost $9

    I don't want to send that jerk a thank you note.

    It would be a waste of 44 cents.

    I wouldn't send him a Thank You note either, but I would have said something.
    Maybe tell the jerk that you made an appointment and drove so far, and you really feel you deserve your 30 minutes, or whatever length of time they allot.
    Some psychiatrists allow 20 minutes, some 30 minutes, some even longer perhaps- for a patient.
    We all know how busy doctors get, but damn them, our time is just as much precious and important as theirs is. I'd let them know that too.

    Oh shit!
    Sorry about that....I didn't see the word job in there, and don't ask me why, but I was thinking you were talking about going in for a doctor's appointment and having to wait and then not getting your full time visit.
    I hope you will accept my apologies :eusa_pray:

    It was your title-----depression--- I was thinking that you were seeking help for that, sorry again~

    Hahahaha...

    C'mon, Baruch, that was funny. She thought...omg, classic.

    I've never sent anyone who interviewed me a thank you. You're way too nice.

    I would have asked why they thought talking to me was a waste of time, and I think I might let their supervisor know they're not really interviewing people. He probably already had his person chosen. What a jerk.

    I'd hire you! What do you do???

    You shouldn't have worn your $30 "Obama 2012" T-shirt.

    Job hunting really sucks.....

    I had an interview outside Seattle earlier in the year: Flew me RT from Denver, put me up in Hotels, rented my car, and paid for all the Sea Food I could stand...

    AND THEY STILL HAVE NOT LET ME KNOW IF I GOT THE JOB!!!:eek:

    I know exactly how you feel. When my husband was laid off and I was looking for work, it took me forever just to get my first interview. I show up and they say their budget has been cut and they aren't going to hire anyone. Never even got an interview. I went home and cried.

    Some people don't understand how difficult it is to get a job today.

    I will be praying for you.
