Sometimes things do work out for the best!
I heard nothing at all back from my job interview at the school. I thought it was quite rude of the principal to not let me know something. My friend (the teacher) actually went and asked him about it--- and he said they really liked me, it was a tough decision, blah blah...and that they were so torn between me and another candidate that they ended up flipping a coin to decide! And I lost. Which is fine, but an email to say "sorry, but thanks for applying" would have been nice. Oh well.
Actually, though, as it turns out I'm glad it worked out that way. The woman who DID get the job had been working as a substitute teacher at the school, and my friend ran into her the next day. She confided that getting the job was "a godsend" for her. Apparently she really needed the health insurance benefits that come with the position because her husband has just been diagnosed with a recurrence of prostate cancer.
When I heard that, I was so very glad that SHE got the job....I don't know what Gregg and I would have done without health insurance when he had lung cancer. Thank goodness they will be able to afford treatment now. And honestly, the job didn't pay very well anyway so I'll be better off in the long run holding out for something better.
I'm just happy to know the person who got the job really, really needed it!
