  3. Any ideas?

    I apparently applied for a job months ago. I keep records of all the jobs I apply for. I can remember thinking about applying for a job that I don’t have any written record of. Yesterday they called me, wanting me to interview. I stuttered and stammered (way too much) because I actually...
