Taxmom

Several years ago my boss' kid (teenager) got whacked playing hockey and was left with a nosebleed that didn't end. Docs finally went up the aorta from the groin to cauterize it from the inside. (Aren't you glad you asked.) As for the interview, in my experience you have to have one truly awful interview experience early in the job search process. Suspecting it was not as bad as you thought, but if it was, I'm betting you've paid your dues and it will improve from here forward.

I thought I was going to have to feign a nosebleed during a very long teaching session last week. A colleague handed me the lid of a biro and hissed he would carry me out if I would start picking. It was very tedious.
Sorry to hear the interview was not a triumph. I hope it has been better than you thought, and that it will be good news on Tues. Dix points for not boking.

Thank you both although I am not expecting good news.

Thank you for the tip on how to give yourself a nose bleed. A very useful strategy which I might apply the next time I have a meeting with the Other Side.
