Sound Effects Not Necessary

It's a darn good thing that I'm not being flooded with unique ideas on the perfect April Fool's prank because I have been found.

That's right. Someone at work now knows how to find me on the web. But, I suppose it's all my fault. I told the driver that his witty "buy apples and crush them yourselves" made it to my blog. Furthermore, I found that if you google "jagoff apple juice" my blog appears as search result #1. And apparently my big mouth was - well - just that -- big.

Oh well.

And since I'm already talking about work - once again I found myself reading over piles of resumes, conducting phone interview after phone interview and finally having a selection of candidates come in for a meeting, narrowing it down further and calling them back in for a 2nd time. We have 3 potentials, and again I am hopeful.

The last guy was - interesting. My initial reaction the first time we met him - not so good. He was a "close-talker" and he seriously got up in my space. My bosses liked him, and I figured I was being too flakey. Turns out that he was probably the biggest flake. He actually made noises in the truck when turning corners or going over bumps. Seriously.

I'm not kidding.

The drivers came to me all like - What is wrong with this guy? And I'm like - Whaddya mean?

"Anytime I turned a corner, he'd go "WEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!""

Apparently for him, riding in the truck was the equivalent of a 3-year old getting a pony ride on Grandpa's knee.

So, we're hoping these 3 leave their sound effects at home.

ROFL...He really went "weeeeeeeee" when he turned a corner?

OMG I was laughing so hard just pcituring this. ;)

That is too darned funny!

Sarah said...

Kat - He REALLY did go "weeeeeee" when they turned a corner. Apparently he also made a "bump bump" noise when they went over bumps too.

Melissa said...

OMG, we both have stalkers! Geez, we've finally arrived! ;)

I can't imagine your drivers putting up with some doofus saying wee everytime they turned a corner.

I'm surprised one of them didn't open the door and push him out on a corner...."weeee...bye bye!"

Sarah said...

LOL No, no pushing him out of the truck, although they gave fair warning that if one of the newbies goes 'weeeee' they are bringing him right back to the office. Just wait til I get around to the hose story. ;)

And I really should read most recent posts first, then older ones. Dang it.
