Sounds like you walk like a jazz playing wolf from a Tex Avery cartoon.
I think I am batting 0 for every cultural reference you have ever made in a post responding to me!
i need a time machine. i dont even need to go back in time. just stop time while i do work
My soon-to-be boss asked me to send over a writing sample this afternoon. I attached the file, clicked send, and Gmail lagged for a second. The message went through but without the attachment. Now I look like an idiot before even starting the job. I obsess shit like this and it is making me furious.
Maybe he doesn't plan to actually read it so he won't notice (you already have the job anyways!)
I once took an art class that had some required papers. It was a studio class but I think there were some writing requirements since it counted as a part of our core curriculum (I really didn't think the teacher actually cared about anything except the art we made). I had written the first 2 out of 3 papers that quarter but this one just completely slipped my mind and I had zero time.
Took a word document, saved it, opened the file in a text editor (word is a binary format so this doesn't work) and just deleted a few random sections and added random characters in others. Saved it and emailed it in...
Figured this would buy me a little time to finish my finals and I could just write it over break whenever the professor emailed me to say he couldn't open it (it was realistically maybe a 2-3 hour item, I just hadn't had time).
Dude never said a thing and I got an A on the paper and for the class
dude, if you are going to get a time machine, YOU HAVE TO DO SOME TIME TRAVEL!
i know the feeling exactly. that shit happens to me all the time, and i obsess over it the same way. sucks.
Professional-level jobs that require filling out applications. I have a fucking advanced degree, a résumé I've pored over, and a great cover letter, and you want me to fill out an application that talks about which elementary school I attended? Seriously?
Fuck you, HR.
OK, don't send it, professor. We probably weren't going to hire you anyway, so fuck off.
Seriously you don't know Tex Avery?
oh im sorry, are you trying to be an asshole, or are you making a joke? because it really seems like you are trying to be an asshole.
Looking at this thread clicked the gen chat link and suddenly I'm using a mobile version of SF WTF
