Your office's version of HRoi seems quite rigid in his beliefs. People who are that stiff are usually hard to work with.

The non-sales ones are probably all trying to make a connection to a job poster.

Can I talk to you about your janitorial supplies?

Fuck off. I don't know you, it's not "re" and cold call emails are not "following up." Die in venomous spit.

I think the problem with Linkedin is that people don't realize that most people (or at least me anyway) actually give a bit more of a shit about cultivating it than other social media accounts. I seem to get a lot of randoms that I met once in passing for a few minutes and have no interest/reason to interact with again trying to add me -- it's not Facebook, where i just say f*** it and add you so I can enjoy creeping you later.

Most people I know either do not use Linkedin or has an account, which haven't been updated in 6 months plus.

That would be "people that want to know useful people trying to connect to a useful person."

That's why I post on this forum. So far nobody has offered me a job yet, but to be fair I have practically no marketable skills and a horrible personality.

I have man flu and I don't understand why my back hurts.

Anyone thinks there is such a thing as "gravitational waves" needs to go back to their escuela of origin gravity is a force that presses down on objects keeps them on the earth. It is like a straight line wind, except that the wind blows down and not sideways. That's why things don't just float away.

I may have, however, accepted invites from women who looked smoking hot in their profile pics

Possibly a form of phishing. They may be able to learn a lot about you (for potential identity theft) using what you may have posted about yourself on linkedin. Attractive or not I never accept connections with people I don't know. The only time I may do so is if it's a serial linkedin networker in my organization (who I can verify by asking our mutual connections).

One thing I been seeing a lot lately is people try to do farmer blow but they fail to where they are walking around with mucids dangling from the nariz don't even think anything of it. To me that demonstrates lack of manners and class.
