Foxy Foxy.

Architect asked me if I watched "the game" Sunday, and I just shook my head no at him like a deaf mute. He looked wounded and continued out the door. How terroristic he must think I am to have not watched the Superbowl. I could have at least pretended to care. I could've gazed at him adoringly while he told me about some stupid E-Trade baby commercial long enough for him to finish talking about football and clear his desk of those architect rolls of paper and throw me down on it. Damn. I promise to pay attention to the next sporting event I'm obligated to as a US citizen.

Some other architect told me to "slow down on my burrito" hours later. You're lucky I'm a deaf mute today, bucko.

Scheduling interviews for Lieutenant over the phone and I ask for their emails to confirm the appointments. Would it kill you to provide quasi-professional sounding email addresses, people? "Doctor and nurse @ yahoo dot," one candidate started to say.

"Are you the doctor or the nurse?" I interrupted him. He won a few points back by claiming to be the nurse in the equation.

I had my own interview with Parole today, and managed to get through it without puking on myself nor anyone on the panel. The dude manning the door has a calming effect on me, because he looks like Rob Zombie. I don't know if that's meant to scare away prospective aggro parolees or what, but I'm down.

Point taken.

That's probably not the explanation HR would want, though.

What about a professional-sounding password? Back in my old job, my boss asked for my login and my password. I took FOREVER because I was too embarassed to give him my password.

"Tommy, what's your password?"
"Hmm, um, *cough* SelenaGomez."
"Who?"
"*sigh* She comes out on the disney channel..."

i had a couple password problems in my day, but mine are always more along the lines of "kill yourself" and "a thousand times die" and whatnot.

Haha, people's responses to those passwords should be a blog in itself!

Haha, it feels so professional that you had a specific link to your entry!

Unicorn+swear word is a lot cooler than my passwords...
