I dont' talk much about work here, but....

I had one of the worst experiences at work today.

I was interviewing a candidate for a job. As I was asking questions, noting down answers, and figuring out what to say next - my stomach started getting upset. And more upset. And more upset. I'm getting to the point where I'm splitting my concentration between asking good questions and figuring out the most polite way to say I have to run to the bathroom....

Halfway through my scheduled time, I have to admit lunch didn't agree with me, and I have to cut this short. I felt terrible. (Physically and mentally...) Then, I got him over to the hiring manager and ran to the restroom.


When I returned, I called and apologized profusely to the hiring manager. And felt terribly embarrassed.

I couldn't even knit to make myself feel better - I had (gasp!) left my knitting at home!
