Are you a lumberjack or something…

…the interviewer asked as he closed up my just failed job interview in his NYNY office. It is funny when I reflect back on that experience. It was winter in New York City so I wore a horse-blanket type of shirt to the interview because, you know, cold!

I remember thinking at that very moment the job interviewer person did not much cotton to my down-home style and was letting me know it. Funny thing how people can almost hiss when they are talking down to you; and that gentleman didnโ€™t sound like he asked the lumberjack question as if it were a complement. I replied, “Yes sir, I come from a long and proud line of lumberjacks.” Then I wished him a good day and took my leave thank you very much.

Semper Fi

    Actually, I was just given a flannel shirt for Christmas, I love it ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Authority does not always win. Goodness and light will prevail in the end. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Well, unless you count God as an authority figure, which He is, but we want Him to win, and He will ๐Ÿ™‚
