I got turned down for 3 jobs this week. 2 at Lakeland Regional Medical Center, the fancy name for our hospital, for patient access representative and 1 at Watson Clinic for security guard/hospitality hostess. I'm pretty sure I could check someone into the hospital or push them around in a wheelchair or drive the tram out in the parking lot at the clinic.. Guess these HR people don't know me very well!
I have to have 2 teeth pulled on Monday, it was supposed to be this last Wednesday but my BP was too high. I wonder why??? Maybe cause I was having 2 teeth pulled??? I also forgot to take my BP meds that morning. The dentist told me to go home, take my meds and be back at 3pm. When I went to start my car it was dead, nothing, zip, nada. Had to call Meagan at work, she picked me up and I took her back to work. Came home, took meds, went back at 3pm and BP was still the same! Come back Monday, she said and we will try again. Since my car was dead, had to have it towed to the shop. Thought it was the alternator gone bad again but was only the battery cable broken in two. So it only cost me $30 instead of the $200 I thought it might be.
Yesterday I was online taking a test for Publix when a Verizon tech put my phone out while working on the neighbor's phone which was out. Lost my internet connection and fouled up my test. He left my phone out when he left, I only had express dial tone and no one could call me either for over 24 hours. Had to call repair from the edt and they told it would fixed by 8pm tonight. It was back in service by 230pm today. I called Publix this afternoon after I had a dial tone and she said they had sent me an email telling me I would be able to finish taking the test. Wish me luck and pray for me. The rest of the test is on Microsoft Word, Access, Excel and Data entry. I will do that Saturday morning. Even if I pass doesn't mean I will get a job but I did make it far enough to take the test. I thought that was pretty good.
How was your week??
