I will tell you a true story. I don't get on the internet a lot, once or twice a week, so if you comment, please be patient. I will respond. Years ago, I took an office test. It was a small employment agency, two typewriters (a year or so before pc's), two tables, two chairs for the test. I walked in and my first words were, "I'm sorry - I'm really nervous..." I kept apologizing and sounding like an idiot, but it came out.
So the test started. A timed typing test. The tester was required to watch to make sure no one cheated. Part way thru, the chair broke. So he moved me to the other table with the other typewriter, #2. I can type without looking up, and got most of the way thru, then glanced at my paper - no ribbon. It had ran out. So he, the tester, wasn't sure where the extra ribbon(s) were, so he moved me to the good typewriter (back to #1), and moved the unbroken chair over. So I started again. Well, I can't remember - something broke. Anyway, after fiddling around, he took the ribbon off #1, put it on the other typewriter #2 which was out of ribbon, moved the chair again, and told me, "Lady, I don't care whether you can type or not - just calm down and take the test - I'll pass you I promise! We really have a limited office budget and I just want you out of here..." I was still apologizing, and he watched me but was rolling his eyes. Well, other things like that have happened when I was nervous or upset, but this one struck me as the funniest. (Airplanes can be scary when upset so won't go there. Let's just say, if you're about to take off and one of those oxygen mask deals pop out, maintenance has to fix it which takes over an hour and you have to leave the plane. We were seated anyway - just starting to board.)
Since registering here, several things have gone out. One my washing machine and another my phone base with four little hand phones, and a few minor things. We've replaced them now. It must make me nervous being here... But hope I'll overcome it. If not, well, it might not be worth the cost. Anyone have any ideas for how to avoid this?
