Anybody who couldn't see that coming for any job more important that a waitress or busboy job is too stupid to have a good job.

I will cut the teens a little slack,though. NOBODY is thinking clearly with all those hormones exploding.

1) They can't get my real name or email address from here.
 

@BassWrangler

Of course they can. You don't think the goobermint has hackers on-call?

Or people who can just trace back your IP address,or whatever the hell they have to trace back to find your provider?

NOBODY in today's world is anonymous from the goobermint if the goobermint decides to take an interest in him or her,

NOBODY. And they ain't about to let a little thing like the Bill of Rights get in their way.

I had a final interview once with a particular nasty HR bitch for a sales job with a fortune 500 company.  I drove 3 or 4 hours to get there only to find out the final hiring decision was to be made the Bitch. It was hot as hell that day and she made me wait 30 minutes to meet with her.  She was a particularly unpleasant anbd unfriendly bulldyke.  After about 30 minute with her she asked me why I wanted to work for XYZ company?  Now I already knew she wasn't going to okay my employment so I looked her in the eyes, loosened my tie and said; "I would never want to work for a company that would have me as an employee." 
That was when security escorted me out of the building.

@Wingnut

You screwed up. You should have told her you would never work for a company that would have HER for an employee.

And that's the problem with honesty, it is never really appreciated.

I really wish you would change your photo attachment. I get a little more depressed every time I see it.

You are tracked in so many ways deleting accounts just flags you.

Better to hide in plain sight.  Have the facebook account that with minimal use, nothing political.  Keep a profile without any flags so they don't keep looking deeper for a place like this.

I'll change it to one that is sure to bring a smile to your face but I doubt I can keep it for long. :whistle:

I'm not talking about government or hackers. HR departments won't find me here.

I'll have to take your word about that being a good thing. I have no real idea who or what HR departments are,or why we should be afraid of them.

HR = Human Resources. They are a department in most medium and all large sized companies. They are almost exclusively staffed with woke females. They are the source of things like "diversity" targets (aka quotas). They consume money and produce nothing outside of a small sub-group that helps with recruiting - in fact they are a net negative in many ways. A good friend, also an engineer, used to say "when I go senile, I'll transfer over to a job in HR."

Any company with an HR department is too big...

My first corporate job tangled with the HR department to get through the door... It took a year even with the engineering department VP and other engineers wanting me there to get an entry level engineering technician job... I was promoted to senior design engineer in about 2-1/2 years with no degree or further education after I was finally hired... I quit just short of 5 years and became a consultant to them an others and about year after that started my own engineering company. We've been manufacturing our own products for about 25 years now...

For my current job, I transfered over from another department. Because I wasn't a "diversity hire", and because they were behind on their "diversity targets", my manager had to go have lunch with the VP that runs the department to make the case why they should make an exception.

I've worked with people of all sorts of races, colors,creeds, religions - I don't care about those things and can't imagine discriminating against someone because of those characteristics. But to turn away qualified candidates so you can chase a vanishingly small pool of "diversity candidates" is insane.

It is insane.

Watch the insanity increase as Biden's amnesty will create millions of new Americans, and he will create a class of 'new naturalized citizens' as a protected class that will be included within diversity hires.

Bank on it.  It will attempt to cement their loyalties to the Dems.

I think you are right. But this might also end up helping us politically. None of these border crossers will have been vaccinated, and many of them will turn into COVID spreaders. We're going to have a third, bigger wave of COVID from this. And that's going to put the kibosh on the "Biden solved COVID" narrative they have planned.  Of course, if they make them all citizens, that's all moot, because they'll mostly vote for Xiden.

2) This place is like a diner in some small town. They don't even know it exists.
Am confidant some Jewish basement dwellers in Krakow thought the same thing when the Nazis were looking for purifying the country.

I had a policy:  I looked up all my coworkers on Bookface, and then I blocked them.

I will NOT comply.
