I Have Confidence In Sunshine...I'm Being Sarcastic Again.
Does anyone actually like my drawings?..sigh
When I was younger my sarcasm was funny and accepted, mostly because I come from a line of sarcastic and cheeky people,BUT... as I have grown older It has sometimes been a bit of a problem...I'm sorry to say that people just do not get 'it' and I am left to explain myself time and time again....or not....
Yesterday my friend Ben called. He had just scored himself a new job,close to home,and said that I should come on down as they were looking for more people to work the floor and someone to work in the kitchen as a kitchen hand... SO... I went down there at the requested time and the Owner ,a rather Impressive Italian gentleman, asked me one question-
" 'Ave you ever worked in a kitchen before? "
It was then that the aforementioned affliction of sarcasm raised it's silly head and I said-
" Why yes! I have been in the kitchen since I was 18 "
WELL....It was then in that awful moment that I realised what I had done.The rather impressive Italian gentleman called his beautiful wife over and he announced to her that I had YEARS of experience working in kitchens (literally I do but not the type that he , and now his wife, thinks)
They were all excited, shifts were being discussed at warp speed and although I did try to explain that I would prefer to work the tables, it was no good and I was asked to return TODAY to be shown the kitchen by a little guy with a 'Kill me now' expression.
It all just happened soooooo fast. I am uncomfortable at the best of times with,let just say untruths, but this was OUT OF CONTROL and I don't like out of control.
I will let you know how it all goes. Part of me says that it can not be rocket science and I will be fine...The other part is imagining myself being coaxed out of a small cupboard by an emergency services guy with a soothing voice.
Later, at home,I told Alan and he said- "I have confidence in you"
It was then sarcasm returned and I launched into a few lines of that song from The Sound Of Music-
Come on all together now you know the words
I have confidence in sunshine
I have confidence in rain
I have confidence that Spring will come again
Besides which you see I have confidence in MEEEEEEEEEEE
No really, I did.
