Phew!

Pitney Bowes called, to say they had decided to appoint someone else in the position I'd applied for. I don't think they were expecting to hear me exclaim "Thank God for that!" quite so sincerely. But with two offers under my belt already, a third would just have been overkill.

I thought it was funny. Not sure they quite saw it like that...

LOL! Talk about an embarrassment of riches! *hugs* Good luck on making your decision.

I've made it already. Apple have just sent me a 'Welcome Aboard'-message ;-)

Fantastic! After so long without offers, it must feel fantastic to be glad when something doesn't come through. I hope you enjoyed the feeling, and congrats on going for the Apple job.

Thank you! And it did feel strangely wonderful.

Congratulations
I hope you realise who this is! I set up an LJ account as I've lost your e-mail address and I just wanted to say congratulations on your new job. You must be a mixture of emotions - relieved, excited, a bit nervous...
Well done, you. When do you start?

Re: Congratulations
Of course I realise who you are! But sweetheart, you didn't have to go to all that trouble to set up an account...or have I turned off anonymous posting by accident? Anyway, now that you're hear, we can be in regular contact again (as long as you can remember your login!). I must add you to my flist, and will do this in a minute, so you can see all my supersekrit friends-only posts too, like the one that went before this and talks about the pros and cons of the two job offers I received.

I feel all those things you mention: relief, excitement, worry...but in the main, I just feel impatient. I don't start until April 1st, you see...

Ooh, I'm so glad you're here!
