Being already employed, I wasn't looking for a job but one kind of fell into my lap.
The interview went GREAT and the job seems more appealing in every aspect than the one I have now.
How long after the interview does it usually take to get an offer (or the opposite)? Its been 12 days and I was wondering if I should call or if I am being very impatient.

It depends how many people and when they are interviewing. If all their interviews are over you would usually here in a few days if you were their first choice. If the first person turns them down then it'll take a few more days. They are unlikely to tell you you have been rejected until they have someone who has accepted the job. If their first choice wants time to think about it, and then rejects it, you could be waiting a long time.
Just give them a call to find out whats going on, if they are considering you they wont change their minds unless you phone every day.
Did Steve tell you that? Fuh - Steve. Just look at this tiny ad:
