So I had the best Fun Friday activity EVER and no one was around because of Spring Break! Which is probably for the best considering what I posted was probably illegal and against at least one confidentiality agreement… Anyway, it’s gone now — so if you missed it I apologize.

My latest irritation — and it’s a small one. These commercials that start out describing this luscious meal of salmon in a “delicate sauce” served with greens and yada yada. And then they carry the plate out of the kitchen and give it to a cat! It grosses me out. They get a shot of the cat chomping on the food with it’s big fat face and they’re careful to get the sound just right so you feel like you’re right there… sharing your delicate salmon with a big white cat. It’s a total turn-off. ”Restaurant Inspired Food for Cats.” Phooey.

Just had to get that out.

    I find it amusing every time I see a Fancy Feast commercial with the fat persian Fudge lookalike cat sitting there and a waterford crystal tray is set in front of it and then some butler dude dings it with a silver fork. 

    I like Mom and Dad’s old approach with the food on the laundry dryer.  If the cat gets too fat to jump up there and get it, he just goes on a diet for awhile until he can.  Worked for… what, like 6 years or something? 

    Ha, good old Fudge…

    “I am very bad about time and don’t mind admitting it. Having to arrive at a certain hour doesn’t make sense to me. What does make sense is that I do the job. Any company that insists upon rigid time schedules will find me a nightmare.”

    And the Number 1 thing you DON’T say in an interview:

     ”My manager dismissed and blackballed me in the industry.”

    Is “The Softer Side of Sears” the one that “Panders to Queers”? Keith, I think I have used 20% of those answers. When I was much younger and certainly cared much less about keeping professional veneers intact, an interviewer went through the entire interview with me and agreed to hire me at the end of it; then he hit me, in his HR candor, with this curveball: “Okay, just come in on Monday, and we will fill out some paperwork and get you a drug test.” I politely said, “I’m sorry. I wasn’t aware that this was a drug-free workplace. I use drugs. Thank you very much for the opportunity.” and walked straight on out like he was the fool. Wasn’t I a strange kid?

    The difference between you and the candidates I put to work is, you were honest and told the dumb ass up front; my candidates don’t tell me until after they’ve taken it and failed….”Oh, I didn’t know marijuana was an illegal drug..!!”  REALLY???????
