I fucked it up

I had my interview today. They told me that they were going to call me at 6:30, but they actually called at 5:30, as I was stepping out of the shower. And it sort of went downhill from there. The good news is that they will give me more money for each dependant I have (two); the bad news is I would have to start in October for sure. The additional bad news is that I won't know if I've made it for another two weeks.

I feel like I blew it, more-or-less. I didn't pay enough attention on the application, typed my birthday as 6/27/07. Misunderstood some British English. A couple of questions I just totally had to pull answers out of my ass. Oh, it was bad. I wish I could just tell the truth sometimes: 'I don't know the answer to that question; I have to think about it more.'

Anyway, check back in the next couple of weeks and we'll have the official word.
