I'm Hired

I just got a weird answering message (well Mr. Ashley got it and had me listen) that said:

Hi Ashley Lastname! This is AJ from Smitty's and I'm reviewing your employment application and we have a job for you! It's a position as VJ. So please give me a call."

Okay, great! I got a jobby job!

Now unfortunately, she failed to leave a return phone number. Also, I don't recall applying to anywhere called Smitty's. I have submitted my resume once a while ago, but it was to our local newspaper, which is not called Smitty's and would probably not hire me via answering machine message while forgetting to leave their number.

And what the hell is a VJ? Do you think MTV is calling me to be a Video Jockey? WTF?

I've followed every lead I can think of and I'm fresh out of leads.

It looks like the Closet has narrowly missed a bullet for now. Be glad for inadequate phone messages, readers.

what the hell? Totally bizarre right there! I don't know what VJ would mean, other than what you already said...congrats on the job though, you must be special if they want to hire you and you never even applied!

Where I am, Smitty's is a pancake place... Don't think they need any VJs there. I wonder if they'll call back in a few days?

Hopefully it's not the girl version of a BJ?

Me... a girl version of a BJ? I laughed out loud! Hopefully you're not onto something there...

This is odd! Around here, Smitty's is a breakfast place too.

I heart your comment leavers.

When I read the post the first thing that came to mind was,

"She's gonna be on MTV???"

That would be an interesting direction...they need a blogger.

I think you should show up at your nearest MTV office and tell them that you're THRILLED to take their offer as the newest VJ.

If anything, just to watch the confusion...

Yea surely you can track this one down after that last troll who never had a chance.

BTW I have totally missed you over the last week my computer died and I was without:(

Oh yea and I love always reading everyones comments you have some funny readers.

I love all of the ideas your commenters have left. I'm sure the answer is somewhere in the list Sasha came up with. :)

How old was the message? Sounds like something I might have said many moons ago?

Wait a minute. You have an answering machine? No voicemail?
