it really is a small world... unfortunately.

so i finished up my jurisprudence course and took the exam today, got it finished relatively quickly partly because it was so easy and partly because i really had to use the bathroom and wasn't allowed to leave until i was done! the people we were sitting next to were really cool, so we exchanged some e-mail addresses and hopefully we'll keep in touch. it's nice to make new friends in a new city, right?

so everything was peachy keen as a jelly bean until after the exam when canuck and i went to the college legal council to get our documents notarized so we could submit the last of our registration materials. there was this chick there from quebec who sat behind us during the course. first of all, during the whole thing she spoke on her cell phone in french. she also made a complete mess at her desk, spilling all her coffee and leaving napkins, paper, crumbs, and crap all over the place. then she shows up late on the second day, and is completely spaced out. while we were waiting to get our stuff notarized, she struck up a conversation with us about how she was sued in quebec numerous times, but the courts decided there was no case in all of them, blah, blah, blah. half the time she was talking, i couldn't follow what she was saying because she kept rambling, but she did speak perfectly fluent english. when we finally get to lawyer's office (he was extremely nice, by the way) she just happens to drop the name of the OTHER guy who supposedly hired me three weeks ago and who has not returned any of my calls and she then tells everyone how she is now going to work for him. so, in a nutshell, not only am i now officially unemployed and starting from scratch, i lost my job to this dumb, crack-head broad and i haven't even gotten an explaination why. i don't even know what to say or think right now, what is this? why do i keep getting screwed?

i'm depressed and i want to go home.


  • oh that does suck...I'm sorry. By the time the Other Dentist realizes they've made a mistake it will be too late because you will already be happily employed somewhere else, I'm sure of it!

    I can imagine you will be in for a big culture shock living in Toronto from such a fabulous city like New York. I hope you feel better and more settled soon. Canada really is a pretty nice country...but you probably won't get really delicious pizza like New York.

  • thanks cindy! after i vented, i started to feel a little better about the whole thing. it really isn't the end of the world, and he's the one who's ultimately missing out. besides, the timing of the whole thing is perfect - the new classifieds in the oral health journal come out on monday so i can start my search fresh from scratch.

    good news, our stuff finally arrived from new york and is no longer in customs limbo so i guess things are slowly starting to come together.

    thanks for reading, do you have a blog of your own???
