The Wrong Call

You never want to go to work sick. Especially your first week. It doesn't matter if that's the first time you've ever called in sick in your life, your new co-workers have no frame of reference, and any doubt they had during the interview process will be amplified hundred-fold. So, in hindsight, I guess it was a really bad idea calling in sick to that job interview that one time. The woman in human resources sounded shocked, but she must have been able to tell that I could hardly talk. I was young and just out of college, and for some reason I thought this kind of thing must happen all the time. The HR woman rescheduled with me, but I suppose she must have had to reschedule with all the people I was interviewing with as well, and that's something you'll never recover from.
