Argh.

I hate the waiting game. I went on my interview on Wednesday, and I felt that it went really well. I got great vibes there, I said all the right things, they said all the right things, and the fact that they have been trying to fill this position since July can only help my chances. But it is now Friday, and I have not gotten any calls back. Just tell me already!!

And the first person came to look at our place last night. And they thought it was average. Screw you! Our place kicks ass.

    Your place does kick ass! I'd move there, but then I'd have two homes, and which one would I keep my toothbrush in? Plus I feel like you guys would take your furniture with you... so freakin' forget it.

    You know my plan to be the overzealousy enthusiastic and ready-to-buy person at your open houses in order to panic all the other potential buyers into overbidding... well, I'm thinking I should employ a similar tactic at your job interviews. I'll interview for the same job, with no relevant qualifications, and I'll cry a lot about my weird problems. Plus I'll be drunk, not wearing pants, and trying to bite my ear periodically. And then how overwhelmingly fabulous will their other candidate (hello, YOU) look?

    Your place DOES kick serious ass. That person must have sucked goat balls. And the nerve to actually tell you that they thought it was average - fuckers! Should we egg their house.

    OOH! I'm with Red on the bad-interview-faking thing. Can I help too? I'll be crazy nympho lady who humps everyone. And maybe drunk too. CAN I BE DRUNK TOO???

    Thanks for the support, girls. You both rule.

    Of course you can be drunk too! I'd be disappointed if you weren't. Carry the bottle around with you, too. Maybe we could start a business doing this for people? It would have to have a good office-y type name though, like Corporate Comparison Taskforce, Inc.

    Should I quit my job today?? I'm ready for the new business!

    What're red and chillier smoking? Do you pay them?

    Contrary to the yes-men here, I have to say.. you're place isn't "awesome", not for the money asked, anyway. If it were offered a lot less then maybe it'd be AWESOME.

    The location drives the price up, but doesn't make the "apartment"-sized home AWESOME.

    There's nothing special about it, sorry. I don't say that to be mean or hurtful, just an honest opinion. My apologies for not following red and chillier's suit.

    I'd rate it as average too, and it's my house. I guess there was no choice for AWESOME.

    Sometimes the awesomeness of a house has a lot to do with the people that reside there, maybe not so much with the carpeting.

    What thing did Red write that was so nasty it had to be removed? Was it about dildos? I bet it was about dildos.

     
  • At 4:11 PM, Blogger Red said…

    I basically commented with something to the effect of "well if no one else is going to put this clown in his place..." and then thought better of it. Why even go there? (Of course, I just went there a little bit, anyway.)

    So yes, it WAS mostly about dildos.

    wow i think this is my record for most comments for one post. and it was a small post too! thanks, hup.

     
  • At 6:21 PM, Blogger chillier said…

    I think it is now abundantly clear that Joe pays hup to make inflammatory comments so Red and I will post our brains out.

    Well done.

    Hmmm....I haven't been on here in a longggg assss time, but with all the talk of Dildos and houses and soaring comment totals...well, I couldn't refuse!!

    Question tho: Does being an uber-computer geek qualify one as a master of realestate speculation?? Apparently not...


    dildo....that makes me giggle

    I thought I'd add a comment to make it 16! This is great... all this talk about inflammatory comments and dildos. Nice.

    Looks like Red is at it again with the inappropriate comments. COME ON! Leave 'em up! I want to hear you throw down on hup's real estate/geometry loving ass.

    Dildo. Always and forever.

    I can't stop! I'm filled with vengeance, and then guilt!

    I just said what I believed instead of what I assumed they'd want to hear. Its certainly supportive of you two to say the things you do, and that's great, I suppose.

    Of course, elictiing delusional states of euphoria and self-appeasement are always preferable to eliciting and demonstrating truth and reality.

    You got me there. My apologies.

    (At least you two are fun!!! That's what really matters.)

    I'm not sure you were "demonstrating truth and reality" so much as giving an unsolicited, mean-spirited opinion.

    You were wrong to assume that I was saying what they wanted to hear; I was saying what I thought, just like you were. I happen to like their apartment-sized house. That which is contrary to your opinion is not incorrect; it's simply a different opinion than yours. It's clearly hard for you to understand this, and easier to patronize and dismiss it as delusion.

    I don't doubt that you communicate with almost everyone who disagrees with you with this delightful combination of arrogance and insecurity, so I'm sure what I'm saying here is incomprehensible to you. So how about I leave it at this: In the future, please leave my name out of your disparaging comments. You don't even know me.

    Sorry for such a long posting, Joe; I guess this yes-man of yours just had one more thing to say. :)

    You're right, Red: I meant objective not honest. Objective as in 'divorced from emotion and subjective opinion.'

    My opinion wasn't mean-spirited, or at least wasn't meant to be. Perhaps I should've stated that I DO like their place, but I didn't think "not awesome" equated with "hate". I guess more people think in black and white than I thought.

    Btw, who attacked me for my different opinion and then proceeded to harp incessantly with belittling comments? Surely a less arrogant and insecure form of communication could have been pursued?

    Anyway, done here. This is old. :)
