I assumed he’d be cool because he knows we’re both pinching pennies and didn’t worry about it.
Then he asked me what he’s getting and I said, “I don’t know.”
I think he assumed I was being coy or something. I was just telling the truth.
So while he’s with his family tomorrow, I will be out buying his gift.
I only wish I could remember which video games he’s expressed interest in recently…
And I am horrible because I haven’t gotten him anything.
Thank goodness for referrals or I’d be shit out of luck.
Do you ever wait so long for the movie you just turned it to to come on that you forget what movie you were waiting for?
I’m always mildly surprised at my choice.
Like, oh I guess I was in a “dude has a mental breakdown” mood. Or, I’m only watching this because of Scarlett Johansson.
Now to work my ass off for the next three months so that this becomes my full time gig and I can quit the job I’m in now to work from home!
I don’t want to speak too soon but I think I rocked it!
I’ll find out tomorrow if I got it (which, given the fact that he discussed a start date with me, I’m confident I did).
He kept saying how he’s been interviewing so many people who are either juggling too many jobs/projects or can’t code at all.
I made sure to let him know I have little to no responsibilities (never been happier to not have kids) and I’ve been coding since everyone had a MySpace page, haha.
Wish me luck!
