Et tu, Malcador? :p

 

I suppose I could be in better shape, but Im old and lazy and was genetically blessed to not be a fatty anyway. I do notice a loss of physical strength though, stuff is heavier now than it was 20 years ago. :(

Annoying day at work today, and some weird weather. About 15C and loads of fog, about 15-20m visibility and almost crashed three times when white lorries drove out of the mist.

 

Driving to work was arduous aswell, had an average speed of about 50-60 at times when the fog was at it's thickest.

It's interesting to get feedback from a job interview and told that you didn't get the position because you came across as "over enthusiastic" during the technical/competency portion.

Maybe that means you expected more from the job than there really was. Too high expectations or something which might result in you loosing interest in it quickly.

Enthusiasm is always a cause for suspicion. We rejected a dev because they said he was too into development.

Hiring is indeed a black art :p

When we've hired people its always been whether they were enthusiastic about the right aspect of the job to align with their potential job satisfaction.

 

For example, we had some positions that were often required to ensure rules were enforced without exception.  Candidates who were overly enthusiastic about the advocacy side of the job were usually disappointed in it since the desire to strongly advocate for the individual you were working with would almost assuredly butt heads with immutable rules at some point.  So we had to weed through and find the people who were understanding that the advocacy part of the job was done in a metaphorical box of "da rulez".

A couple months ago the wife of one of my uncles was hospitalized after coughing up blood. Turned out that she had esophageal variceal bleeding and she barely survived. The docs told her in no uncertain terms that she can either sober up fast or the next time'll be the last time.

 

She didn't, and now it's that next... and well, last time. The liver's too badly damaged, her renal system all but shut down - dialysis can't keep up and complete organ failure is imminent.

 

I feel bad - for my uncle. He's going to lose his wife and it's going to be hard for him. Honestly I just hope he doesn't end up blaming himself for what happened.

Sorry to hear that, majestic. Preventable deaths are some of the worst...

Saw in the news that one of our lorries crashed on the way to our depot an hour ago. I got a really weird feeling to know what driver it is from just looking at the trailer.
