1 day of hunting down...

It's not like I have a babysitter at my beckon call. And if you don't know anything about the background of a restaurant, let me tell you, you only apply between 2 and 4. This is the "down" time of the business and the only time a manager has the ability to see you.
So, I arrive at Longhorn just after 2. I am wearing a nice black, casual dress that shows the peaks of my breasts, big white beaded necklace and topped off with.....heels. A pair I have NEVER worn, but were $5.00 at TJMaxx.
The manager sits me down, even though he told the applicant directly before me, that he had no positions. He looks over my application and tells me it is ridiculous. (meaning ridiculously overqualified and outstanding;)) He asks me how Arkansas was.....I say, AK, is the abbreviation for Alaska, and I loved it. (What are we teaching in school these days....anyway) He goes over the basics, what brings you to town, (I have lived here for 4 years...and my last job was here, in town for 3 years) yada yada yada. He boils it down to, there is just not enough shifts for me. If anything he has too many servers already. I tell him, I don't want to work that much anyway, and ask him if he could just fit me in. (It doesn't help that I'm not available for any lunch shifts) He says he likes me (DUH, what's not to like;)) and that he like my vibe (does that mean tits?) and that I would be a great fit. He says he is pulling my application and giving it to the General Manager and together they will fire some people and hire me.....(We shall see)
Selling yourself is like being a door to door salesman. If you don't finalize the sale before you leave the door, you usually don't get it. I'm confident that I sold myself, but I can't work with an oversupplied staff issue. I was told to call him next week. And I will. Everything will work according to "His" plan. I will either have to go somewhere else or wait a week or two. I have NEVER applied somewhere and not gotten the job. I'm not being arrogant, I just am a good bullshitter and can sell myself (even if it means using my knockers)!
Keep me in your thoughts as I decide what to do from here!

I will be hoping for you to get this job. I usually get jobs that I apply for too - knockers never hurt.
