    I realized it's all automated and algorithms, but just how fucking difficult is it to get job search info correct on LinkedIn, Indeed, SimplyHired and all the rest?

    Me: <Search for digital marketing jobs>
    Job sites: Here are 20 over-the-road truck driver jobs.

    Me: <Search for public relations jobs>
    Job sites: Here are 30 KFC crew member openings in your area.

    Fucking bullshit.

    I've never known anyone to get hired from LinkedIn.

    Does your state unemployment office have a job board on its website? If so, check it out as a primary source. It could be an aggregate of of jobs from businesses that:
    • A) post with the state first, and maybe only there.
    • 2) are copied to the state board while posting to another board, and often show up first on the state board.
    • iii) also: Good Luck!

    I've used those terms within quotes ("public relations"). It helps a little.

    A message to all of the people driving automobiles across America.

    The blinker. The clicker. The turn signal. That little stick on the side of your steering wheel that makes a little noise when activated.

    It's not there to hang a smelly tree from. It's not there to put rubber bands on or to wrap your little hair dealies around.

    It's there to let someone in front of you, to the side of you, or behind you know which way you're turning.

    Absence of the use of this whatever the FUCK you want to call it can create accidents, increased anger to the nth degree, and many vile curse words being including, but not limited to "STUPID MOTHER FUCKER" and "NO DRIVING FUCKING ASSHOLE".....

    This is all that I ask.

    Respectfully yours.

    Chef

    Turn signal.

    That’s the joke.

    Political signs have begun appearing in our neighborhood; all for one national candidate that will easily win this state.

    My wife is livid. “I’m going to have to say something to them! Not everybody in this neighborhood feels the same way! We should all agree to just have no signs! Either that, or I start putting bigger signs in our yard!”

    I spent much of my life as a dinosaur journalist who never put a sign out in my yard for anything, lest I be accused of taking a side. I’m used to limiting publicly expressing my political options. Among folks who know be, fine, but not in the public sphere.

    She’ll do what she wants to do. I’ve warned her that the reaction might bring a chill to otherwise friendly relationships. I think that it’s tempting nastiness or a fight that we won’t win. The potential cost/benefit ratio makes no sense to me.

    Hopefully, she’ll cool down, but her ire will just be sparked again if she walks the neighborhood. It’s a grand time to be isolating at home.

    Show of hands: How many people decide who to vote for based on a yard sign?
