Once again… the malefic.
Yesterday the company I work for offered my job to a promising applicant. Yesterday she accepted. Today (a Tuesday) she changed her mind.
Meanwhile, my sales manager just left for a two week vacation. He returns on the 24th. Coincidentally (???), Mercury returns from its trip backwards through the Zodiac on the 24th as well.
So my professional life has been put on hold until he returns and they can recommence the interview process. I’ll continue to sacrifice two hours of my waking day to the car for the newish commute. Sigh.
I should have known… with Mercury in retrograde… that this process would not be easy. But that’s not really something you can share with your boss and expect him or her to comprehend or respond. “No no no… we need to wait until Mercury returns. We can’t interview now… It would just be a communication disaster!”
