Paper Belly-Shirt

So, in a previous post I talked about a job I was interviewing for. I was offered that job but had a horrible feeling so I didn't take it. Immediately I felt better. Well, I have still been applying for different jobs and had an interview today. Boy, was it the strangest one ever.

I'm going to start off with a story of me being sick to set the scene;

I am always sick. Once I am over it, its only a matter of a couple weeks before I get sick again. Its pretty annoying, not to mention physically and emotionally draining. I have been to see pretty much every specialist you possibly can and thought as of Friday I was out of luck. That there was no one out there to help me with how often I get sick. I was then told to see a Pulmonary Dr to help with this HORRIBLE cough I keep getting. I made and appointment on Friday with Dr. Julie and scheduled an appointment for today at 11:45. So now that I have set the scene for you, here is where it gets interesting.

Like I said before I have been looking and applying for other jobs.2 weeks ago Steve was looking at the news paper and had a feeling to go to the job section where he found a posting for a medical receptionist for CCI Medicine. Great, sounds like something I would enjoy doing so I applied, sent in my resume and waited. Yesterday afternoon I got a call from a Dr. asking if I would like to interview today at 1pm. I quickly said yes and got directions. When I hung up the phone I then got another call from that same number. I thought it was weird. It was the front desk receptionist calling to confirm my Dr Appointment today. Hmm... I put 2 and 2 together and figure out I have a Dr. Appointment with Dr Julie at 11:45 and at 1pm the same day I have an interview with Dr. Julie. I laughed so hard. I couldn't believe that coincidence.

Fast forward to today. I got up, picked out an out a outfit to wear that was extra nice for my Dr appointment since technically that was really my 1st impression. I curled my hair even. I wanted to make sure she immediately thought well of me. I brought a different, nicer outfit to change into after my appointment for my interview. Well...The Dr. walked in and said, "I recognize your name, don't we have an interview scheduled today?" I said "Yes, we do, Quite the coincidence." she smiled and said " well lets just combine the interview with your appointment"
Ok, that's fine. We can do my check-up then get down to business. The Dr. does her thing and then last part is that I had to take the top half of clothes off and put the paper shirt thing on.. which is like a belly shirt and impossible to put on without tearing it. I put the paper belly shirt on and waited for her to come back with my belly hanging out and my right breast as well. It wasn't the most comfortable thing, but hey, she is a professional she will forget my body for the interview right:)

Wrong! You may be asking yourselves "what? why would your Dr. NOT forget about your body?" Oh maybe because right after my exam, in my paper belly shirt she said" OK, lets start the interview" I froze, I didn't know what to do. I know, everyone is gonna say, " Katy, you are crazy! why on earth would you not asking if you could put your shirt on?" well, I don't know the answer to that. All I know is that I panicked, didn't know what to do and proceeded with my interview basically shirtless. Just hanging out!
Not only did my Dr. interview me, she asked all the other Dr's in the clinic to take the time to interview me as well. Oh and let me know forget that the Nurses and Receptionist were included in this group of people who basically got to see my goods. I am being honest here, and not over dramatizing it. This is really what happened. The interview ended and I got to put my shirt and bra back on. Talk about uncomfortable!!

I never thought I would have an interview like that. At least it makes for a good story...maybe a good story to tell at parties.
If I get the job my co workers all got to see me in a way I never thought they would.

I feel really good about the interview overall. I feel they really liked me and what I had to offer. So I would be surprised if I didn't get offered the position. Even more surprised now that they have seen how amazing I look....
