...and sometimes you don't. Or, rather, sometimes you think you have a new job, and then you don't.
All I can say is: I'm awfully glad that they had the courtesy to call and rescind my offer of employment on the Friday afternoon prior to my scheduled Monday morning start date.
After all, I mean, they could have waited 48 hours and sent me packing on Monday morning, as I waltzed into their offices, mocha in hand.
So, in retrospect, it was nice of them to call so far in advance.
Perhaps I should ask them for the money that I'd have made with the other job offers I could have accepted but didn't.
Or maybe I'll just sleep in on Monday morning and continue enjoying "Attack of the Comfy Pants: Part 2—Spring is Coming!"
