I got a phone call yesterday!

Canada
November 8, 2008 12:48pm CST
I was on my way to work yesterday, using public transit, and my cell phone rang.... I was shocked and caught off guard to answer it and find that it was not my husband! It was one of the ladies clothing stores that I have applied to at the local mall! She wanted me to come in for an interview and gave me a time of 8:30 Tuesday Morning (Remembrance Day) I have made arrangements for mt son's therapist to come for eight instead of nine so that I can make it to this interview on time! It certainly is promising!!! So, To make this a discussion, What was the last good news you got and how long ago did you receive it? Was it by phone or by mail? Or did it just come to your doorstep? How long had you been waiting? Share your stories here! I also want to take the time to thank everyone for their prayers and support over the last three weeks! Hopefully this is the right job for me! ~Heavens~

Oh.... good luck on your interview on Tuesday!!! Very few people have my cell number as well, and if anyone other than the 4 people I've ever heard call my cellphone, it would surprise me greatly. Granted, I don't give it out much. lol. I'm someone who really appreciates the little things in life, so saying what my last good news was could be very recent. Such as this morning getting a call from my mum saying that she and her hubby are coming over to visit today for my birthday (which is tomorrow). That's a nice surprise, especially because I know they're bringing all sorts of goodies with them (large bulky grocery store type things, because they have a vehicle and I don't).

Well, first of all Happy Birthday!!! It is nice that you will have some time with your Mom today and she can bring you some much needed items! My most recent good thing is that this morning my Mom told me to purchase my son's school pictures and that she will pay for them! I guess we are both really really thankful for our Moms!!! ~Heavens~

I am so excited for you, I hope that one day I will get such a call..I hope this is what will work out for you and your family. Since I haven't gotten my "call" for an interview I would have to say my latest good news was I received a DVD in the mail that I had bought for my daughter for the holidays. It was a great deal, only 15.51 including shipping and handling and it came quickly and thankfully I got the mail instead of her, that would ruin the surprise..I am trying to get her the Star Wars DVD set. I bought her the second one for her birthday, because at the time, that was the only Star Wars DVD I could get using paypal..So I received the first one today, but I am 1.07 short in my paypal to get the third one, so I have to wait until mylot pays out..So it is exciting, this is the first I have bought things so easily and it is my money and I just love it, shopping from home like this...:)

Thanks heavens..A job would be better, I can buy more and not have to wait, but patience is one of my faults, so maybe I am learning this..Mylot is great, though my average payout a month is 15.00, that is better than nothing and it helps that when the holidays come, that I have some gifts covered.. Though I am waiting on your discussion about giving gifts that are free or very inexpensive..I still have more people I would like to give to and if I can have an alternative, that would be great..:)

I'm glad that you make $15 a month here...I am lucky if I make $4 to $5 a month I usually get a payout every two to three months! Right now I am just under $4 and that is rolled over from last month but then I have been busy the last couple of months too! I guess I had better start that discussion soon hadn't I! Perhaps we'll both get some good ideas! ~Heavens~

That is really good news and I will keep my fingers crossed that this is what you are looking for. I cannot really answer the rest of your discussion as I have not had any good news for a while, I am not saying that I had any bad news just that I have not been waiting for anything!

I bought a bike here in malaysia where i am a foreign student. And the bike had alot of problems of which i was not aware of. And no buddy was ready to buy the bike and it was giving me problems day by day and i had to make repairs of all that which being a student was not easy at all. I tried so much to sell the bike and everywhere i got nothing but disappointments. But suddenly i was surprised by a caller who called me at 7 in the morning and he wanted to buy the bike the same day and that too at the price which i bought it for. I was so happy by the call and a took the bike to him straight away and he paid me the same time. It went at the same price at which i bought it for.

Usually good news to me come by mail. It is good to open my E-box to find that one customers is insterested in our products and would like to discuss more about orders. But bad news also comes by mail. Bad to receive reject mail.

Hmm Last time I got good news was I need to reschedule my counseling meeting, it was cancel. It was by phone. The good thing about this was...I felt lazy and didn't want to get out of bed and go all the way to the office. So the other good thing about this is I got extra sleep I wanted for the day.

Congratulations! I will pray that you get a job and also pray that it is the right job for you. My last good news tha tour family received was when my daughter's boyfriend cam eto see me and asked permission to propose to my daughter. I didn' think that there was anyone left who did it the old-fashioned way any longer. What I especially liked was that he also phone d her three brothers and asked their permission too. I like him so much so of course I said yes but then I had to wait a week before he went to the USA to propose. It was the hardest week of my life as I could not warn my daughter and I did not know what she would say. Everytime she called I would make the calls short and this upset her so much she asked me what was wrong. I have never kept secrets from my daughter si this wwas so fifficult. anyway, last week he went witha ring and proposed to her and she said yes.The next day she called me and said 'Mummy, this is the first secret that ou have ever kept from me" I aske dher what she said and then she told me that she had said yes. I was so happy that I dropped the phone. I called her back to ask if she had a ring and she told me that she had a white gold and diamond engagement ring and that she was so happy. I am overjoyed that she met this man for whom I have so much respect and admiration. so my good news was by phone!

As a university business student, my last BIG good news was 2 months ago. I was re-hired by a Investment Bank on Bay St. for my coop term. I had originally turned down their offer but they liked me so much that they accepted me upon my request. I am very happy with my current line of work, and my current situation has made my year! Besides that, I tried to find something good in every day I live. Yest, there will be ups and downs but it is our ability to focus on what will get us to where we want to be that counts. I think it is fantastic that you received an interview and good luck with it. Think positive and what is meant to be will be!

Thanks so much for sharing your success with me mayhem23 and welcome to My Lot! I am so glad that you are stating out your career with a great job that you enjoy! I have been looking for a change in my life and started seriously applying about three weeks ago! I missed an interview at another store about a week and half ago because I had to help my parents move and so I am thrilled to have been offered another at a different store! I know I will find the right place for me! All the best in your career and I hope that you enjoy My Lot as well!! ~Heavens~

Hi heavens, This is the first chance I've really had to be on here, since Friday. As you know, I've had a very busy weekend. I'm thrilled to hear about your phone call, and upcoming interview. What a pleasant surprise 'for me too,' to log on and find this discussion. I'm anxious to know who the interview is with. I'm not sure what your week is like schedule wise, so maybe you can send it to me. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for this one. As far as my last good news goes, I received an unexpected phone call the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend. The caller said 'he' had something to drop off at my home for me. It was a great blessing to receive this gift. Another thing that comes to mind, is the day my brother and sister in law picked me up to go out for lunch. When it came time to pay the bill, they treated me. I 'know' that you're aware of the significance of this act, on their part. These are just two examples, but I'm sure I could come up with many more, if I really thought about it. It's great to count 'our' blessings. Take care. Love and Hugs to you.

Hi Mom! Don't have a lot of time here as I work today but I wanted to acknowledge your response here...I just am eating lunch here, I was at the mall this morning as I found that nothing I own that would be suitable for this interview tomorrow even fits me!!! So I had to get shoes and a top for this which I got for good prices as well as nylons and a couple of accessories! I went all out because it is Laura Petites, a woman's clothing store in the mall they are looking to fill two part time positions and that is all I know at this point! Thanks so much for stopping by...I knew you would once you got home from your week-end...I shall try to visit your topic later! As for my days off this week they are tomorrow and Friday! Love and Hugs ~Heavens~

Actually, I had already thought about what you'd wear for your interview. I 'know' what it's like to be at a job where you don't really need to dress up, or you wear a uniform. Then when something like this comes along, you have to refurbish your wardrobe (often from head to toe.) Any of 'these types' of stores I've been in, always have well dressed, accessorized employees, etc. Hopefully, if this is the job for you, the pay will be such that you'll be able to add to your wardrobe for this purpose. Who knows, maybe they have an employee discount. I really do wish you all of the best in this, and you'll definitely be in my thoughts and prayers. Something good just has to be finally coming. We'll have lots of catching up to do, so hopefully we'll accomplish this ASAP. Hugs.
