Ah the Meanies.
I struggle with these posts - I don't exactly know why except that if I wanted to get all psychological on my own self, I figure it's probably because they are traumatic enough when I receive the offending message in the first place, so to have to stare at it and analyze it again to write a blog posting makes me...uncomfortable. And mad.
And pretty much want to skip over the topic entirely, but I think it's important for the world to know just how vicious people can be to HR and Recruiter types, just so you all give us just a smidge of sympathy.
(Is it working? Do you feel even *slightly* sorry for me yet??)
Okay, the sad kitty picture made me feel slightly better for some odd reason...except now I feel I must go hug a cat.
Anyhoo-as I sifted through my pile of Meanie Monday choices, I came up with one that was short and sweet.
So here he is, and I'm going to use part of his real name because I feel like it...an email to me from Tobias.
Same deal, I contacted him because he used to do insurance- found him on a major job board etc... here's his email back to me, a nice and simple email from an asshole:
"I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU GOT MY EMAIL ADDRESS. BUT LOOSE IT AND DON'T CONTACT ME EVERY AGAIN. OR ELSE."
Alright TOBIAS... you jackass.
First of all, I OBVIOUSLY got your info off of A JOB BOARD you posted your damn resume on.
Second, you want me to "loose" your email address and don't "every" contact you again?
I totally want to get all grammatical on his ass but I'm afraid he might retaliate with an assault rifle.
Oh, and "OR ELSE" WHAT?? Hmmmm??
(Again, possible assault rifle usage fear comes into play here...)
So instead, I will stare at your address, try not to notice that it's on my way home and use every ounce of self-control not to go to the drug store ON my way home to get some cotton balls.
