Yes, we need to make money to survive, but some work opportunities will only ever lead to toxic drama.

Listen to your instincts.

Just politely say... "I'm sorry. I just had a death in my family. I must go."

Then run. I promise there are other jobs.

Job interviews can be nerve-wracking. You might go into one wondering what to say, what to ask. You might be acutely aware of your heart pounding in your chest.

But then you manage to ace the interview and get the job.
