I applied for a job last week. At the interview, they told me it came down to me and one other person. My prospective employer said they’d make their decision by Monday.
On Tuesday, I called to see if they were still weighing their options, or if they went with the other guy.
“The other girl.”
Now, she didn’t quite emphasize it that much, but she definitely wanted me to know that they hired a female, not a male.
To me, “guy” is gender neutral. It just takes less time than saying “person.”
Am I crazy?
