    Dirty environment and/or people.

    No one appears to be happy, including the interviewer.

    They actually expect you to be on time every single day!

    They will not allow you to bring your German Shepherd, Trixie, with you to work.

    They have a cafeteria but will not give employees free lunch.

    Hey, hold on a second here . . . ! You don’t have to wait to find out whether HR at Randall D Randall Industries, Inc. is going to hire you or not!
    Grrrrrrr.

    OSHA is still on the scene investigating what happened to the guy you’re replacing.  The boss said he was hoping it would’ve been cleaned up before you arrived for your interview.

      “ . . . and this time, make sure it ALL makes it into the hands of that OSHA inspector, every single dollar. We don’t want a repeat of what happened last time when you tried to pocket a couple of bands of loot for yourself. Grrrrrrr.”

    Last time, the inspectors didn’t have change for 100s.  Maybe use smaller bills next time, or at least take out my cut ahead of time.

     “Cut”? “Your cut”? You don’t get a cut! No cut for Livvie! I’ll bet you’re the one who put the full mop bucket at the top of the stairs and switched that employee’s Tic Tacs for double-dose sleeping pills!  You had ONE task: hand over an envelope to the inspector WITHOUT opening it first, and especially without taking anything out of it! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.



    :(

    Umm, Randy, it kind of looks bad in the interrogation room when YOU’RE the only one who knows about those sleeping pills and nobody else mentioned it.  That’s just my observation after watching too much Law & Order.

      Note to family:



    (Now that it’s been posted on the refrigerator, it’s just like being engraved in stone. Legally binding.)

    The interviewer has alcohol breath.

    The interviewer wants to discuss my career over dinner.  

    The interviewer wants to know my bra size. 

    The boss's secretary is his mistress.

    There is a full bar in the employees lounge.

    The interviewer asks you to make him a sandwich.

    He asks for the market value of your tilde portfolio.

    He constantly corrects your grammar.

    He seems fascinated by your nipples.

    You notice that you're standing on a trap door and the interviewer is reaching for a lever ...

      All of those encompass reasons I never applied for any jobs when I was in Australia, and instead just returned here to the US. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

      Not at all, mon ami! I even enjoyed the experience of that established my lifelong aversion to Vegemite! Just think of all the wonderful content it provides for banter with you, Mate! I’m grateful for the subplot that you and I have developed here.

      That solidarity instance of tasting Vegemite lasted a split second; it was bad, but it doesn’t detract from my overall impression of your great country and the great people I met during my two visits there.


      (((Pants no longer on fire; it has been doused.)))

    Did you see the petroglyphs on the sacred Aborigine rock?

    "THE sacred Aborigine rock"? You do know that there are literally thousands of those, right?

    I was unaware of that.  There is one huge rock that is off limits to the public, saw it online.

      No. The first time I went there, I was a 19-year-old Marine aboard ship on a Western Pacific Deployment. There were 5,000 Marines and sailors on four different ships, we had shore liberty in Perth and Fremantle, Western Australia. We were there about five or six days. The second time I went there was a year later, same location, same setup.

    That is rather limiting, too bad.
