Laugh of the day


A couple of weeks or so ago, one of the contractors blew up in anger and
ran screaming, never to be seen again.

They hired somebody to replace him.

Unfortunately on his way driving to Des Moines, he was stopped and
arrested for a felony warrant in Florida.

So they hired somebody else to replace him. That guy was supposed
to start today, but he didn't show up.

Aparently he also has a felony warrant...

One wonders... at what point does the company began to, oh, run background checks for outstanding felony warrants?

Further leverage to threaten them with... how many felons will it take to replace you if they don't make you happy?

They did run the background checks, but only after they hired these guys...

I have no outstanding felony warrants, to the best of my knowledge.

Can you do 3D mapping in realtime in an embedded environment using C++, are willing to move to Des Moines, and willing to work in a soul-crushing, insanity producing work environment?

I'm not quite that desperate yet.

Genius
You know, stuff like that you just can't make up.

Wow.

Of course, with the developers I'm working with at MY soul-crushing, insanity-making workplace, I'm not in the least bit surprised. (No offense to the outstanding devs out there; I'm talking about a different breed of cat here.)
