Good news and bad news

So which do you want first? Okay, the good news is I have an interview on Thursday. I don't know much about the job except that it is an office manager only 3 days per week. If I have to work in an office I'm all about the short work weeks. I can find another job to work Thursday and Friday. I've also discovered, collecting $249 a week of unemployment for the last year, that I can survive on very little money.

The bad news is that I came home to a message from the company I DON'T want to work for but interviewed for anyway. They didn't say anything except please call us. And if they had decided not to hire me I'm sure they would say so in a voicemail. And it's not like I had a lot of competition, they don't advertise their jobs. Dammit. 8 hours a day of no internet access. I would feel totally out of touch with my friends and the world. But I only have one week of unemployment benefits left. And the job pays decent. So it's not like I have a choice.

Do you have any idea how stressful it is to be forced into a job you think you're going to strongly dislike and feel trapped in? I don't know what to do. I can't just take the job and keep looking because we can't accept phone calls while we're working. No potential employers will ever be able to reach me. Not to mention how unfair it would be to them to quit after they trained me for 3 weeks. I'll think about it tonight...which is a shame...because I was hoping to relax tonight.
