Last week was quite an event.
I interviewed for a job with a diner downtown that was looking for an executive chef.
The diner features French cuisine and the place seemed like a good fit for me and my strengths and weaknesses. I met with the owner of the diner for an interview on Tuesday. The manager wanted to ask a couple of questions after I finished the interview with the owner. I was doing my best to answer all of the questions when I noticed smoke coming out of the air vent above the manager. I tried to interrupt the guy, because I thought the air vent problem might be important. When I interrupted his question, he became aggravated and started to yell. I had to blurt out the reason why I interrupted the conversation in the first place. When the guy looked at the air vent above his head and saw smoke, he told me to evacuate the room. I walked outside and the owner finally came outside and told me that they would be in touch. I didn’t hear anything at all for three days and then the manager called to offer the job to me. He acted like I was crazy when I asked him about the smoke coming out of the air vents. The manager tried to tell me that the smoke came from the kitchen, but I knew that wasn’t true. After seeing all of the strange problems, I thought it was best for me to wait for a different job to come my way.
