As always these questions come from Friday 5. Apparently this weeks theme is faces?
1) How’s your poker face?
From years of playing poker I can safely say that my poker face is excellent! And I can say that because you can’t see my poker face over the computer.
2) When were you last red-faced?
Oh that would be earlier this week when I changed some code that we use for one of our applications to make it more “streamlined”. Unfortunately, my changes had an unexpected consequence of messing up some other code, which I wasn’t aware of until the other day. At which point I had to send emails manually, they were supposed to be sent automatically, to 71 people rejecting them for jobs. Wow did I feel stupid for screwing up the code, and I felt awful after rejecting all of those people…..that was not fun, especially rejecting the same person for 3 different positions in a span of about 5 minutes! Nothing ruins a Monday like crushing 71 peoples hopes in under an hour!
3) When will it be time for you to face the music?
When I have to give my statement to lawyers in the next couple months. I’ll leave it at that!
4) What’s an issue about which you’ve done an about-face?
When I switched careers because I wanted to do something where I got to use my brain more instead of just doing the same repetitive things day in and day out. Who knew having to use your brain for things would be so stressful and difficult?
5) Who’s overdue for some face-time with you?
Oh god, anybody who knows me is probably overdue for some face time. I’m sure it’s been a while with far too many friends. Family I’m pretty decent at keeping in contact with, but friends…..not so much.
