Feeling sad and guilt…

This morning two bad things happened…One I still feel guilty about and sad about the other one.

I was driving David to school and accidentally passed a bus with his stop sign raised.
Actually the bus was in a long like of cars on the other side in a two lane street, and every car was just sitting there, the ones before the bus and the ones behind. There was no gap or any indication the children were boarding onto the bus. As I passed the front of the bus, the driver raised it’s stop signs…A girl on the side of the road started stepping in front of my car, but backed up and waited for me to pass…Did I do something illegal? I was surprised by the stop signs going up as I passed the bus and also by the girl. I didn’t think stopping along the body of the bus was safe either so I passed it really slow…I saw the girl passing the street behind me.
I saw the bus stop there before but it was always on my side going home. I am laden with guilt now, but really what it the law in this case?

I tried to scroll through this FB page for missing pets, to see if someone is missing a orange cat with white marking on the face, it is an older, big cat, but I couldn’t see such post.

I didn’t see if it was a male or female, I was too distraught to look. The cat was laying in the middle of the road, in Clearwater on Belcher between Nursery and Druid…I had to swerve to avoid hitting it’s lifeless body, and I only drove a few feet, then turned around and picked him up and set him on the grass. I said a prayer and left him there hoping someone who was missing this cat would walk there to find him. I don’t know what’s better…never knowing or finding out…Sorry to whoever owns this cat.

Employment rants and all

You know what law I would like to see?
For employers to disclose the real reason for not hiring the person in front of them.
In my early USA days…I was so naively confident that I can nail an entry level data entry job, and the recruiter who also happened to be the owner!!!! that day he did interviews…??? anyways, he told me I wouldn’t be good for the job. Wen I asked him why, he said bc it’s boring. I argued that I needed a job. And his argument was that he needed people that will stay working for his company long term.
When I asked him why does he think I won’t stay long term, he said I see your personality. I then asked what’s wrong with it?
He’s answer: You are outgoing, you like to work with people, you have a lot of good qualities you wouldn’t be able to put to use by sitting at that cubicle and I will lose you no later then 2 months…and after we put in 2 paid weeks to train you, we will be frustrated to see you go. As much as I agreed with him, everything was absolutely true, I was angry with myself for not getting the job.
I was also happy that he told me the truth, or at least he told me something…most employers don’t even bother contacting you after an interview, let alone tell you why you didn’t get hired.
Who else thinks that if employers told the reasons for rejecting your application would help improve your interviewing skills??? lol. No I mean who believes they can improve on themselves, if they knew the truth, or they would reconsider the jobs they apply for?
After this interview I decided to reconsider my job search parameters and I opted for appliance sales at Sears…that didn’t go over so well either…at that time they asked me if I have 20 years experience in appliance sales…I didn’t. I was 26, so Unless I started making revenue profits for a million dollar company at 6 years old…so my answer had to be no. (ok only 2 years experience, but still…how do heck you gain experience if you never get hired in the first place lalala). The naive me brushed it off… went strait back to retail for minimum wage…what else is a girl to do fresh off the plane, with 10 years experience in retail Bam#
