I decided that it would be easier to take a taxi rather than hoping a bus would come along and get me there at the right time, so at about 1510 i phoned up
for a taxi and was told it would arrive in about ten mins. All Good. 15 mins pass and it doesn't arrive, i phone the taxi firm & they say it will be here in a couple of mins, I them phone manpower to inform Marting (my dude in Manpower) that i'm waiting on a taxi, to which he says perfectly amicably that he'll pass a message on thru switchboard that i'm running between fifteen and twenty mins late, awfully generous of him i thought.
ten to four comes and the Fkin taxi Still hadn't arrived, i phoned Manpower back & explained, he gave me the switchboard number of the firm i was to be interviewed by, so i phoned them, explained, and was told i'd be phoned back.
I don't think it needs to be said that they didn't call back, and so, it was because of a fucking incompetent taxi firm that i missed a damn good chance at the starting point to the carreer i would like to pursue.
But, i was thinking as i got ready to wander into Megabowl to see a man about a job, at least i have a backup plan, a Safe Option™. But Noooooooo. I spoke to The Man™ about A Job™ And apparently they didn't want to take me back. :/
One good thing tho, over the last couple of days EzE & I have been playing a rather spinkee game called Empire Earth, And it's rather alot of fun, and highly addictive, so much so that it falls int the slot of Total Waste of Immense Amounts of Time™
This is good :)
