I finally decided to quit grooming. I called my boss up and told her to not schedule anymore grooms because I am done. I thought it would be a really quick phone call, but it took 45 minutes for me to quit. When I first told her, she acted like she was expecting it. She showered me with compliments and told me how well other people thought I was doing. I thanked her and then said I don’t have the patience for it anymore, so it wouldn’t be wise for me to continue.
We finally came to a compromise of me just bathing dogs that come in to be boarded. Which is something I was actually thinking to continue anyways. As soon as I hung up the phone, I checked my email and I had four people contact me about coming in for a interview. I am going to take that as a sign that it was meant to be.
I also had a business call me for a phone interview which I begrudgingly accepted. I do not answer my phone because my anxiety gets worse on the phone. It’s like my anxious brain starts screaming at me, so I can’t hear the person on the phone. That leads me to just saying yes to whatever they are asking me and ending the phone call with no idea what was said.
Anyways, I called the business back and followed through with the phone interview. It went a lot better than I thought it would. I even remembered what was said. When we were wrapping up the interview, the lady asked if there was anything else I wanted them to know. I thought about telling them I had Keen, but I decided against it. I will just let them know when I go to the onsite interview, otherwise I will be written off.
I did so much out of my comfort zone today. I’m actually very proud of myself. Today started out absolutely terrible. I had hit rock bottom once again, but as soon as I made a decision and acted on it, it all changed. It just amazes me how quickly it all changed. I will update you all on any interviews (or maybe even jobs?) I get.
