You are hired based on a whole host of factors including:
- the people you know
- the people you don’t know
- your reputation or lack thereof
- your skin color
- your height
- your weight
- your shoes
- your last name
- your (dis)ability
- your gender
Don’t let a recruiter, your spouse, or your colleagues tell you otherwise.
My advice? Buy a new suit, get a haircut, and update those old glasses. Shine your shoes, sit up straight, smile, polish up your presentation, and eat a Certs.
The behavior-based interview is just a formality.
Isn’t it awkward when there is one guy at work and you know he’s on the chopping block — but he’s the last to know?
Then he finds out and he’s like, Oh, man, I can’t believe they fired me.
And you’re like, Dude, I know, it sucks. It’s so unfair.
Except you totally knew it was coming & it’s the best thing for everyone involved.
Our Justice Department is no different than your accounting department, and that’s really scary to me.

I keep watching this & adding reactions:
- It takes a lot to make Mario Lopez look sharp.
- Does she say OSAMA in the beginning?
- Towards the end, you know she’s thinking, “Yeah, nailed it.”
- I blame her parents.
We are back in action here in Kitten City.
I’m having technical problems.
By technical problems, I mean that Charter Communication sucks and I can’t get on the interwebs, watch cable TV, or talk on the phone from home.
We called about the outage on Thursday (“We are responding!”) and on Friday (“It will be restored in two hours!”) and then again today (“Call back when your outage is restored and you can talk to a customer service rep about having your account credited. Refunds are not automatic.”).
This is America. Why are we paralyzed by rain? Why does our infrastructure fail so often? What if Al Qaeda attacks us, again? Why am I not receiving an automatic refund from my power company, communication company, cell phone company, etc., when I have no service on certain days?
I’m not sure what’s worse: The Taliban or the telecom companies. They prorate the hell out of my bill when I add services. Can’t they prorate an automatic refund when I have an outage?!
- One communication company.
- Three services.
- One low price.
- No reliability.
I would be better off with two tin cans and a piece of string. It would be cheaper, too.
