When everyone else is the problem, maybe the problem is you.

They say when you have a child, you change, you've never loved anything more.. However, the child has no obligation to share that same sentiment.

Reminds me of the telemarketer the other day in this sub, complaining that people use their kids to record their family voicemail greeting. I find it annoying as much as anybody else, but if you are a telemarketer calling my house then you are going to suffer whatever fucking voicemail greeting I want to put on that answering machine.

I actually like those ads as they allow me 20-30 seconds of peace instead of whatever the ad was supposed to be.

But then how will you know what mobile game all the 30-year-old moms are playing this week?

Catan is more enjoyable than most people I've been in contact with. But in my defense, Catan is pretty fucking enjoyable.

That's true.

Most of the reason I play board games is force myself to socialize.

No she does a lot and we do a lot back, but don't stress everyone out about leaving at a certain time and then when everyone's ready to go you do something that can wait until we get back

I'm not even a mom, and I can tell you right now that you have no idea how many things she does for all of you every day.

this is my dad lol. he would always pressure everyone but was the last to get ready

It's a good thing. Embrace it. You'll get better service and cheaper prices. Potentially new friends, too.

And if you stay long enough, maybe even a new liver

Same thing happens at my Local. What's really bad though? When you board an airplane, someone from the flight crew recognizes you and has a drink ready. That's when you know you travel too much.

I think the other guy was more right than you are

I've interviewed for many jobs for over a year and this trend is really getting frustrating

Are you following up after the interview? I've heard people expect applicants to follow up directly to thank them for the interview, otherwise they seem uninterested. Otherwise you might be failing the background check.

Yes I always go out of my way to thank the interviewer for his/her time, and I make with to mention something to show that I was both paying attention and am interested in the job. The end of the interviews have been very positive and promising and I often get information about the next round of interviews... Then it's nothing but dead air, like the person and the recruiter both got hit by a train over the weekend.

My background check is fine, too.

Where I live the job market is very hot and I'm guessing that recruiters and interviewers just get flooded with applicants and once a person is picked it's just on to the next one... but I just wish that SOMEBODY, for once, could give me some feedback so I knew how to improve.

It's almost as if I work for these interviews for weeks and weeks and weeks and then all of the sudden it's like none of it happened.

I just don't understand....

You can blame our lawsuit-happy society for that one.

If you were an employer, would you want to actively tell applicants they were denied? Of course not. Any one with a bug up their ass might decide to sue, claiming discrimination, unfair interview, or any other thing they wanted.

When there's no feedback there's nothing to object against. Anyone tries to make a stink, oh we had to withdraw the job req for other reasons. We continue to keep so-and-so's name on file for future openings. Blah blah blah.

Also sometimes companies do keep resumes on file. They don't want to actively turn you away, maybe another opening pops up in a couple weeks and they just roll you into that candidate pool. Or maybe the person who got the offer takes a while to decide and declines. Or maybe they get into the job and turn out to be a crack addict and get fired two weeks in.

So no, with very rare exception, you are not going to hear back that you were not hired.

IMO if a company doesn't give you the courtesy of a reply to your follow-ups you probably wouldn't really want to work there. It is common professional courtesy to reply, even if it's just a simple "Thank you but we have decided to go a different direction."

Companies that treat people well.. like people, do exist and you'll be much happier once you find one.

This should be that adorable baby wolf meme.

Thanks for not saying "hacked".

Yeah, but confession bear is always the default for when someone doesn't know which meme to use.

You're grounded mister.

He hung around in the car park until you got off just so you could get karmic justice? No he didn't.

You know some people make up stuff.. like for Internet points..

It wouldn't have done him any good. Even if he had broken the screen the deductible on the insurance plan you tried to sell him is higher than the out of pocket cost of replacing the screen. Its really only worth it if you lose your phone/ it gets stolen.

Plus based on my experience dealing with carrier employees, I would only become irate when the salesman wouldn't stop trying to push a product that I clearly told them multiple times I didn't want. I'd wager that he got tired of pushy sales tactics.

Yep the more likely scenario is that OP got yelled at by some customer for trying to rip them off, did nothing but apologize for the inconvenience and then came to reddit with what they wished had happened.
