Twilight Zone

I've had a weird experience.  The job I was interviewed for last week is done and dusted.  Didn't get it.  That's OK.

However, the people who interviewed me told me they'd contacted all three of my referees.  I've since contacted them and they say they weren't contacted.  So who's telling the truth?

My referees are all people I've worked with for years and whom I trust.  I've been volunteering at the other place for about three months and thought I trusted the people there.  I just can't understand why anyone would lie about this.

Frankly, my money is on my marvellous referees.

I don't understand dishonesty.  I'd much rather hear the truth.

Grrr. So with you on disliking dishonesty. And querying the motives. Did they have someone lined up for the job in advance? And in a perverse sort of way I am not certain I would want to work for an organisation who couldn't even be honest at the outset.

Yep. I'm bewildered by the whole thing. Still like the people, but the trust is gone.

And losing the trust is awful.
