Seriously though, isn't it amazing the email addresses people will put on a resume or job app? The all time, what in the hell is she thinking award goes to, "backdoorlady@..." I kid you not. Calling Ed!

Maybe not for the position she's seeking, but a job's a job, right?

Especially given the number of news articles that have popped up in the last couple years about how bad for you it can be to have these sorts of email addresses, post pictures of yourself on-line, etc. But people keep doing it.

Don't smear my kids into the sidewalk, please.

Then you'll love my story. I look in my rearview mirror one day and discover the girl behind me is applying eye liner while driving!!! She's looking in her rearview mirror, up close, and the light ahead of me is red. So I stop, she stops, and I think everything is cool. Then she taps my bumper, I put it in park, and get out to inspect the damage. I'm moderately pissed and she's apologetic because "my foot slipped off the brake". Well, there's no damage, so I calmly suggest that applying eye makeup while moving, or even while stopped at a light, is a bad idea and we go our separate ways. What a moron!!!

The real tragedy is that when (not if) this woman causes an accident through her inattentiveness, she'll likely escape unscathed; someone else will "” sadly "” pay dearly.

Unfortunately, In my experience those who have the ridiculous e-mails are often not the most choice candidates. Neither for the job we had been interviewing for nor the "job" you might want to hire her for.

this is one of the ugliest and most disgusting trends in the history of menswear, I'm sure. Started with the faided jeans and such of, say, the '70s, and went on to the very costly Dolce and Gabanna ripped jeans and on down to all sorts of average-priced ripped baseball caps and so much more from companies. Even the great RL has gotten into it. If clothes can't be elegant they should at least look in decent condition.
My philosophy is that of Flusser's - in "the office" casual clothes should follow the same basic rules as dress - in decent condition, fairly clean, following aesthetic/color principles, fit decently. I'm of the old school when people (and their mothers, when applicable) would feel some shame or embarrasment if the individual went out with clothes that are ripped, stained, etc.

A local NPR photog went to Union Station to try out a new panorama camera that some uni is developing. He set it up on a tripod and started taking photos.

Now he's bitching because he was asked to stop photographing. He's claiming that he has every right to do what he was doing (and that they were inconsistent in their treatment of him, first being told by one guard it was fine).

The fact is that using a tri-pod in Union Station requires permission. If he had held the contraption in his hands, he would have been within his rights. But he used a tripod.

Bitching like this makes the whole fight over photography rights weaker.
