I thought I was the only person who added ‘Batman’ on the end of a statement when I was trying to accentuate the statement.
I had a job interview over Skype this afternoon. It was with an Architectural Design firm and I think that it went really well.
It started off on a bit of a funny note. I’ve been dealing with a woman at the firm who has been arranging the interviews for the CEO. When she called me on skype prior to the CEO walking in she was immediately startled and said ‘Holy Blue Eyes Batman!’
I laughed. I also said ‘Sorry’. I’m not sure why I said that. I just chalk it up to being Canadian. I’ve gotten reactions from people about my eyes for my entire life. It’s not really anything new for me. And I genuinely do think I startled her. I can’t imagine what it’s like to see my face as big as a wall.
She said ‘Are you wearing contacts?’
‘Nope, this is my natural eye colour,’ I said.
She apologized to me several times for commenting on my eyes (I think she felt really awful about her reaction), and then she told me she needed to dim the brightness of screen. (She seems like a good person. I bet if I did work there we’d be friends.)
The CEO came in, the interview went really well. I genuinely think they quite liked me. The CEO was laughing and told me that my qualifications were impressive on a few different occasions.
I don’t want to get my hopes up only to get disappointed, but my hopes are up with this one.
Cross your fingers for me, please!
