Job Wording

Here's a little clarification of typical vacant job listing lingo...


COMPETITIVE SALARY:
We remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.

JOIN OUR FAST-PACED COMPANY:
We have no time to train you and you'll have to introduce yourself to your co-workers.

SEEKING ENTHUSIASTIC, FUN, HARD WORKING, PEOPLE:
...who still live with their parents and won't mind our internship-level salaries.

CASUAL WORK ATMOSPHERE:
We don't pay enough to expect that you'll dress up; well, a couple of the real daring guys wear ear rings.

JOIN OUR DYNAMIC TEAM:
We all listen to nutty motivational tapes.

MUST BE DEADLINE ORIENTED:
You'll be six months behind schedule on your first day.

SOME OVERTIME REQUIRED:
Some time each night and some time each weekend.

DUTIES WILL VARY:
Anyone in the office can boss you around.

MUST HAVE AN EYE FOR DETAIL:
We have no quality control.

COLLEGE DEGREE PREFERRED:
Unless you wasted those four years studying something useless like philosophy or English.

NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE:
We've filled the job; our call for resumes is just a legal formality.

SEEKING CANDIDATES WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF EXPERIENCE:
You'll need it to replace three people who just left.

PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS A MUST:
You're walking into a company in perpetual chaos.

REQUIRES TEAM LEADERSHIP SKILLS:
You'll have the responsibilities of a manager, without the pay or respect.

GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS:
Management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want, and then do it.

Kitchen Signs


So this isn't Home Sweet Home ... Adjust!

Martha Stewart doesn't live here!!

Ring bell for maid service. If no answer, do it yourself!

I clean house every other day. Today is the other day.

If you write in the dust, please don't date it!

I would cook dinner but I can't find the can opener!

My house was clean last week, too bad you missed it!

I came, I saw, I decided to order take out.

If you don't like my standards of cooking ...lower your standards.

Although you'll find our house a mess, Come in, sit down, converse. It doesn't always look like this: Some days it's even worse.

A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen, and this kitchen is delirious.

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand!

Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator.

Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused.

Countless number of people have eaten in this kitchen and gone on to lead normal lives.

My next house will have no kitchen ... just vending machines.

I'd live life in the fast lane, but I am married to a speed bump.

It'll be a 6:00am to 3:00pm work day for me today.

Unfortunately I can't put it off. My Boss is one of "those" people so.....

Have a happy day everyone.

If not today then tomorrow.

No hurry. wink

Good morning all.

BB pancakes in the corner Midgie. Enjoy.

Got a text from Susie. She went by the Breast Center and the path report looked good. She will get a final report from her doctor.

Our orchestra conductor cut rehearsal a few minutes short last night. Said his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and she had an appointment with the doctor today. He wanted to get home to her.

It started raining about the time we got out last night and ended up with an inch of rain. Still some snow on the ground but boy what a soggy mess it is out there.

Got some chicken out for dinner tonight. Shake and Bake time again.

Guess I'll go play something for a little while then do my first round of treadmill.

Have a great day everyone.

Bets

Lovely winter day cold (50's) but sunny and almost cloudless.

Schemer is on my lap and makes posting most difficult as he is the most affectionate cat I've had - a real lush. His coat is thicker and softer and he has recovered quite well from his humileating operation. And right now he's purring up a storm.

Might try some games today besides zuma and ricochet.

Because of this nsaid I have to eat breakfast - what a chore as I haven't eaten that for several years now. But the meds are working, oh happy day. Also I can't take aspirin with it but still can take turmeric. That's fine. But the best thing is -the games didn't cause it.

Everybody, get well take your meds and happy Tuesday

Tuesday already? I'm not done with Monday yet!

Another lovely day here except for the wake up call of heavy machinery and those back up beepers at 7 am sharp. Road work continues. Yesterday the chopped up all the old asphalt and then smoothed out the road to let the residents drive back in for the night. Very very few did. I advised my neighbors across the street to be very careful. When we were told it was OK to drive in, a ton of people got stuck in the soft dirt and then it rained and there were tow trucks galore. What a mess.

This time no rain predicted, all seems to be going OK. Only 3 cars in front of my house this morning, and they seem to be leaving slowly.

STILL no sightings of my drug dealer, boytoy of the drunk lady guy or his car. I'm thinking he's either in jail or left her? Hope it's one or the other and he's not just on a vacation somewhere. Love to 'clean up the apartments' of all icky people, but then again, the all seem to be icky. I'm positive it's a halfway house now. Never advertises a room for rent, mostly single males who get 'visitors' like once a week, and after staying a month or two, they are suddenly gone. What a weird place!

Off for a walk in my NEW Coogie brand satin, embroidered, red and black and gold 'track jacket'. Yesterday's thrift store find. Oh so gorgeous. Gonna be the talk of the construction crew. rotfl

Hey Nan go for that 5K. My 1st race was the Tulsa Run-might have been a 10K. I was routenly running 5 miles but never the Tulsa run milage. Anyway a lady from Bartlesville and I ran together which was good because she quit easily and I tend to start and go faster and faster then drop. I kept her going and she slowed me down -goodgoodgood. toward nthe end I looked back and all I could see was a lady in a wheelchair and an overweight kid. But we finished and got our tee shirt!!!
