Truth: The best policy

telephone.

To start off, my husband hates to talk on the phone. I don't mean he dislikes talking on the phone...I mean he HATES it. Normally, when someone mispronounces his name, it's a good sign that it is a telemarketer. I have always said "No, he is not here." Today, that backfired on me big-time. Layton got laid off from a really good job about 6 months ago, and was fortunate enough to get hired on temp-to-hire at Fersenius, through SOS staffing. It is a great job! He seems to really like it too...but we have a few months left until he is hired permanently. There is a lack of stability there which causes a due amount of stress. Today when the male voice calling asked for "La-ton" and I said he wasn't here...they told me that it was Fersenius wanting to interview him for a full time position...(YAY) I felt so stupid walking into the other room to say "Honey, you have a job interview on Wednesday." But hey, HE HAS A JOB INTERVIEW ON WEDNESDAY!!! YAY!!!!
