no!? NOOOOO!!!
I AM SO so SORRY. Ugh.
I was really hoping for change for you guys. I wish I could do something. I hate that for ya'll. Please know that we all think the world of you and Mr F. Better days are SURELY ahead.

Oh geez!!! It's nuts to be strung along for so long to then have it turn out so badly.

So sorry!

P.O.M. said...

OH fuck.
That's all I can offer - unless i was closer then I'd come over and offer a bottle of wine.

Mrs Furious said...

Yeah it blows. He was there on Friday and they obviously interviewed someone today that they offered the job to. It sucks because you feel like you got so close but there is no runner up prize. It came down to a personal gut feeling of the vice president and not because he lacked the skills. Which is good... but also bad... because you kind of feel cheated. Like if you have the skills and can't get the job... then what are your options. We are really considering the RV.

Mr Furious said...

Thank God Mrs F is making chicken soup for dinner...I don't know why that is consolation for me right now, but it is the thing I want most in the world at the moment.




Besides a good job.

Cara said...

Eeek I am sorry. Not that you care at this raw emotional moment, this just means something even better is in the future.

Supermom said...

NOO!!! This totally SUCKS!!

I am so sorry you two!!

~sigh~

Mrs Furious said...

Cara,
This is what I am trying to tell myself.


Supermom,
On the upside I'll still be available for playdates. Just make sure you've got liquor. ;)

G in Berlin said...

I am so sorry. Have some soup and then a cry and then I guess go back out there and keep slogging, both at life and trying for another job.

Kelly said...

Im so sorry. It seems like you cant catch a break! I wish I had something more helpful to offer, but the RV sounds great.

G in Berlin said...

Also- have you looked at USAjobs.gov? There are an awful lot of federal jobs available- I'm not certain if any of them suit the Mr's skills, but there are a lot.

{big sigh}
so sorry.

hang in there.

Loralei said...

I'm so sorry. I hope that another opportunity presents itself...and soon.

wootini said...

Nooooo! Oh no, I am so sorry. That totally, totally sucks, especially to get so close.

julie said...

This blows.

You guys should make a big batch of that white trash stuff and eat it until you feel sick.

And then start over tomorrow.

so very sorry.

Amy said...

Oh shit...
Get the RV. I'm not even kidding.

Supermom said...

I will hit the ABC store just for you!!

When do you want to come over? :)

I'm glad you are still here for playdates but I knew how important this was for you and your family!

Call me when you want to get together.

HC said...

Oh fuckity fuck fuck!

Fuck.

Just, fuck.

I'm sorry. :(

Jenny The Bold said...

That really sucks!!!

I don't think that money can replace family time. And since Mr. F is getting more hours with less pay-it's not worth it! My advice would be to definitely downsize. I've thought about an RV in the past too with wanting to quit my job. It may not be a reality but there's got to be a way to cut down on costs-and housing is huge.

sara said...

Mrs. Furious!

I'm so sorry! What a disappointment! I'm completely irritated with this company for giving your family the run-around and pulling at your heart-strings (as my mom would say). Pooooooooooo.

I'm only thinking good thoughts for you guys. And I'm psyched to hear about plan C.

workout mommy said...

NO!!! that SUCKS! I'm so sorry for the furious family. :(

angie said...

Oh God, no. No. No. No. I am totally crying. I am so sorry on so many levels. My heart is breaking for you. I will call tomorrow, figure you need tonight to yourself. I can't even believe it. Fucking morons.

northerngurl said...

So sorry for you guys. That sucks.

Jen said...

So sorry. However, just remember, "Every cloud has a silver lining," so be hopeful because difficult times always lead to better days! I've seen it happen too many times. Crossing my fingers for you guys!!!

Robin said...

I'm so sorry.

Smitty said...

Sorry Mrs. F. And sorry to Mr. F too.

I wish I could find more here in MI, but with a 15% unemployment rate...

I will keep my ear to the ground anyway.

Running in Alabama said...

that job is probably gonna get the ax in budget cuts next quarter...I feel it!

sorry :o(

Andrea said...

Im so sorry I can understand what a dissapointment this is for both of you.

Karen said...

I am so sorry Mrs. F. I wish there was something I could do.

Mrs. Smitty said...

So sorry to hear. Enjoy your chicken soup tonight Mr. F. and I hope in the near future you are both able to find a silver lining.

TotallyFried said...

I am so so sorry to hear the news.

{{{HUGS}}}}

TracyMcLarney said...

Just wanted to add my sorrys having an unemployed husband and 4 kids I can totally relate to the money stress. Hopefully something better will come along soon.

Mr Furious said...

Smitty,

The irony here is that the job actually was back in Michigan. It was why, in many ways, it was the perfect scenario...

Oh well...

Me, Only Better said...

I am sorry.
Very, very sorry.

inkelywinkely said...

This sucks, ya'll. I will be sending good vibes your way and hopefully something good will happen.

I know I can't offer up anything that would help you in a situation like this..but, maybe I can bake something and mail it? Would that make you feel better?

Torey said...

So sorry Mrs. F!

I think you may need to do a bitchfest Thursday too!

Wish there was something I could do!

Kiki said...

Mrs Furious, all my love to you tonight, I am so sad for you and for Mr. Furious....wishing you both a peaceful nights sleep and dreams of unlimited options...RV = travel = maybe a visit to the beach! (I can hope)

Any chance of a return visit to Charleston?

Love to you and a big hug too!

Mrs Furious said...
