A Nibble

Well I had a good job interview awhile back with one of my former competitors last week. We talked about the business and asked each other a few questions and it seemed to go well. I was honest as I could be and was pretty much myself, I even bathed and shaved for the occasion and refrained from telling rude jokes. They got squishy on some questions I asked... but I pretty much knew the answers to them before I asked them... and they knew I knew too. If nothing else, I know that we play the same game, and it looks like we play the same way...

But... they called me in for another interview next week. I know I can do the job, I think they know I can too. The problem is this: what their idea of a senior sales guy is... may be different than mine. And with our economy in shambles right now... beggars can’t be choosers. We’ll see what happens.

For now it’s -32C out. I think the block heater’s out on the Dawgmobile...she cranked this morning, coughed, and farted...but didn’t catch. Truck is 12 years old so maybe it might be time for a new battery too. Whatever... I ain’t gonna screw around with it today.

You guys stay warm.

Cheers.

    1. Meh. I'll get the block heater fixed, put a new battery in and it will run like a champ.

      How're you guys doing down there these days, M?

    2. Might be making progress. Got the quacks to agree that we need to look at metabolic issues rather than further medieval surgical savagery.

  2. 25° below? I haven't seen that kind of weather since I left South Dakota - and I don't wanna see it. Make sure you got your antifreeze topped off every morning!

    If the economy is in the kind of shape you describe, what they really want is Divine Intervention. What they'll actually get is a life ring, and they better be able to hold onto it until the storm passes and the sun comes out again.

    I'm glad you got the call, though.

    1. Well that's the other issue, Jack. If I get it, will it be a good job or a circle jerk? Things are so predatory and mercenary right now, it's unbelievable. It isn't "do unto others" up here, it's "screw them before they screw you..."
