Fuck off. I spent 20 years doing hot, hard, dirty, and often dangerous work so I could be a fat assed, desk driving, corporate shill.

The never ending struggle between labor and management, white collar vs blue collar, red vs blue, etc is what built this country.

I can see how fluffing would be hot, hard and dirty, but how could it be dangerous?

And go think about the labourin' man over a long weekend at your million-dollar lakeside cottage while drinking $13 bottles of craft beer.

Because breaking in the new fluffers is dangerous work. The ladies get so into it skin can be lacerated.

One guy was always called Mildew. I really never thought twice about it. Another was called Sparrow and another was called Toad. Somehow these weren't meant as insulting at all.

When my daughter was growing up I gave most of her friends nicknames: Larpet, Wyvern, Bob, Pinto, Smooches, Cleo, Aspen, Spinner, to name a few. Good times.

Oddly enough I know a girl named spinner as well. Good times.

All over my FB feed I'm seeing posts be like "I'm soooo happy it is College Football Season once again can't wait for dat cresp fall weather and orange leafs of which I associate with College Football Season!!!" When I see reference to cresp weather and orange leafs I start in with a bunch of expeldivs. Who would want such a weather phenomelnon?

Anyone here with experience interviewing candidates and making hiring decisions: what are the best days of the week to schedule an interview?

According to research studies (srs), Tuesdays and Thursdays are solid days. One even mentions Friday as a good day, despite "conventional wisdom" saying Friday is bad because it's the end of the week, people are excited about the weekend, and generally are decision-fatigued.

Timing-wise, mornings before lunch are thought to be optimal. But I'm kind of stuck on the day. Obviously my ability to interview and whatnot will carry the most weight at the end of the day (pun intended), but I'd like to optimize my odds wherever possible.

Thoughts?

If they give you a range of times in AM pick the earliest. A guy at our office offers candidates 730-11am and anyone bright and early is a step ahead.
