Ever have one of those days that nothing seems to go right?
This morning I was jarred awake by a call from the consulting company I used
to work for.
"Hey, I submitted your resume to X
"Why did you do that without asking
me? I have another group handling my relations with that company!"
"Look, I don't work for you guys, you
can't submit my resume without my consent, you probably just lost me a job!"
Nice of them to attempt to help me out, but that's just fucking
unprofessional. If you are a consultant, you probably know what I'm talking
about. If a large company gets more than one of the same resume from different
companies, they'll just toss it out. My old company is still using my resume
without my permission, I guess that pink slip I got didn't mean as much to them
as it meant to me?
Then I had a lot of other things to deal with today, mostly involving money,
which I'm very short on these days, being unemployed and all. On top of this
shit, I have to try and deal with the person that administers the server that
codewolf.com sits on. Usually he's a great guy (on the very few occasions that
I've dealt with him, he's been very easy to deal with). However today was an
exception... Here's a bastardized transcript:
"Hey, I still have no email access,
how is that server move going?" (sent from my gmail account)
"It's done, you can access the server
using the email I already sent you"
"Um, I have no email access on
codewolf.com, how can I access the email you sent me?"
"Yup, I sent you an email about that"
"What part of, I don't have email
access don't you understand?"
Just one of those days I guess. And for all the other people that have email
accounts on codewolf.com, I'm sorry, I'm in the same situation. Please be
