Just call me Persnickity

There are things I expect in this world.

Coffee will be hot and brown.

Showers will be hot and have sufficient water to make you feel, well showered.

Hard cooked eggs will have their centers cooked.

People that fall into that strange but ubiquitous normal category should be, well, normal.

Punkin Head is agreeing with me that given the people we are dealing with to get jobs it is amazing they have jobs and we are seeking jobs.

My current recruiter has done the following in the last 48 hours:

Given me the wrong call-in number after we had both checked it twice, he blamed this on his "colleague".

Given the people seeking a decent employee the information that I did not give a reference for my last direct report after he to spoke to my former boss, the Director of Quality. He told me that he was surprised I reported to someone that high up the food chain.

Sent me the incorrect address for the company I am supposed to show up for an interview with at 8 AM. He is correcting his colleague's records.


Big Daddy got my fountain working in the back yard. I may need to go faux drown myself.


  1. It sounds as if your recruiter is under thirty and couldn't find any other job. He may even be under twenty five. As they say, "sorry."

    1. But he has found 100 morel mushrooms in the last few days.

  2. Nothing quite like a good faux drowning, especiaLLy if you are holding someone else's head under the water (did sweet little ole me just type that?!?!?) ... time for coffee and let Cooper back in - they are predicting snow in our region tomorrow!

    1. This snow situation is getting to be ridiculous. Say hi to Cooper for me.

    2. I wiLL. They have us scheduled for snow at 11 AM.
