Just handed in the notice for my flat. I’m moving out on the 5th of March.
The agency I was in touch with didn’t get back to me – despite what they said. For Monday I had an interview with another agency scheduled but they gave me a ring to tell me the interview was cancelled and that they’d do a phone-interview later that day instead. Which they didn’t.
Yesterday an agency I interviewed with weeks ago rang me and asked if I was interested in a position they were looking to fill. They required a skill-set that was so far away from mine, they could have been looking for an experienced truck driver as well, wouldn’t have made a difference. What do these people have my CV for?
Simply said, I’m just sick of this. Are these people lying to my face? Are they just incredibly unorganised? I don’t care any more. If New Zealand or Auckland was a place where I’d like to stay then I would have beared with it for longer. But there is basically nothing to keep me here.
After the time in Oz I was surprised, even shocked to experience the people here in Auckland. From all I knew before coming here, Aussies and Kiwis are not very different. Yet the experiences I made were very different, not only in business but also in private life.
On this side of the Tasman sea I met so many close-minded and xenophobic people, I couldn’t believe they are supposed to have anything in common with the Aussies I met. Ask for directions in the streets of Auckland and people will treat you like an idiot. No sense of helpful friendliness.
I will now organise an ordered retreat and figure out what the best way for my return to Germany is.
