Dingbats Galore

Have you ever come across people who are such dingbats you don’t know how they make it through the day without killing themselves accidentally with a spoon? They seem to be growing in number and they seem to be in a place to hire people. Idiocracy is coming true. The dumber and dumber are calling the shots little more by little more.

First you have one who couldn’t do basic math if it was staring her in the face. Which in this case it was staring her right in the face. The answer and all. Yet she still got it wrong. Not mixed up with another past position, but flat-out wrong.

Then you have one who knows her schedule, she knows exactly when things can get done, she can meet, etc. and yet when the time comes, whoops, too busy or too much do to or…insert whatever other excuse you want. FYI just be sure to put “too” at the start of it. I think some brain cells went to some far away place long long ago.

Then you have one who isn’t trying to trick you. He wants straight forward answers. There are no tricks to these three whole questions. There is nothing tricky about them. By now you can surmise that the only thing tricky was trying to count how many times the dingbat said tricky during the course of his three whole questions. All three of which were stupidly generic.

Then you have the real dingbats who conduct an interview like it’s a Twitter conversation. You’re sitting there on Blogger while they are using Twitter. No joke. Not more that 140 characters came out of their yap for any response. I can only surmise she was trying to go green and save the planet by breathing and speaking as little as possible.

Yep, the dumb have truly risen through the ranks. Ever deal with such dingbats? Soon we’ll have surgeons that go to remove an appendix and take our your liver. We’ll have cops who help the bad guys carry their stolen goods away. We’ll have lawyers who…Can they get any lower?

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

My dad always used to tell me I’d have one at every job. And so far, he’s been right…

    Very very true, you usually get more than one too

That’s why we have the Darwin Awards.
Although my interview answers tend to be really short…

    Mine are short, unless they ask for some stupid “what did you do when” question
