Job hunting update part 4

And the search continues...Sadly, a couple of jobs that I was excited about last week seem to have busted. Kansas City Regional said "no" and the probation thing didn't work out either. So it is hard to get excited about anything right now. I interviewed today with KC Housing Authority. This would be assisting poor families in finding low income housing. I'd say the interview went well, but who really knows? The guy did ask for my references (that could be encouraging if I wasn't so pessimistic). The pay isn't very good either so I wouldn't be destroyed if I didn't get it.
I'd say the most interesting news came last Friday afternoon. After completely giving up, my old director called me back after 3 weeks of not returning my calls. He asked me to come in on Thursday to "talk about possibly returning". This is what every unemployed person wants to hear. If I do have an opportunity to return, I would take it since there appears to be no other offers on the table (There is still a slight chance I might hear back from Truman)

I figured there are several scenarios that might happen on Thursday:

scenario 1. My director is on his hands and knees and begs me to come back "we were so wrong to fire you. You are the best, please come back. I never liked that Assistant director, so I fired her"

scenario 2. I go down on my hands and knees and beg for forgiveness. Pride goes out the window. I offer to clean the bathrooms and re tar the roof. Tell them how right they were to fire me.

scenario 3. My director says "what are you thinking? You were fired, you can't come back! Can't you take a hint!"

scenario 4. My director says "I called you here because we want the men's bathroom keys back. We are on a tight budget.

Time will tell

May the door be opened that you need to walk through.

I'm hoping he begs you to come back in a failed attempt to avoid a wrongfull terminiation suit that you will bring against him. Retiring with a boatload of money in damages would be sweet compensation.

Then again .... companies that find ways to firse people so they can save on expenses don't often have boatloads of money.

... hope it works out and that we get an final update soon.

Let's hope for Scenerio 1. It could happen.

If that doesn't work out, I saw a job opening in the paper. Sunflower Centers of Kansas has adult case manager positions. It is in Paola, KS though.
