dollar that was spent, organized shipments, coordinated with vendors and venues... All seemed to be go incredibly smooth... A little too smooth - more like ice. And the slip was waiting to happen.
The cab I reordered arrived at our office to drop us all at the airport. I double-checked my bags and packages to make sure everything was in place. Opened my folder to make sure. My boarding pass was still where I placed it, climbed into the back of the mini-van yellow cab and waited for the rest of the team to start piling in.
While I waited, I exhaled after a deep inhale. All was good. As we eased out of the parking lot, I grabbed my purse to get my planner and pull out some cash to pay the cabbie, it was at that moment that all the planning, all the phone calls, all the work - my life - passed before my eyes... My planner was not in my purse, nor was it on the seat next to me. Which meant I didn't have a driver's license, cash, orcredit cards. Not even a boarding pass made of gold would get me on that plane now.
In trying to cover the big, HUGE picture, I failed to check the small screens all about me. The details of normal aiir travel, not terrorists' travel, require two things, two things that if failure occurs will preclude you from boarding: a boarding pass and a government ID. Sitting in the backseat of my little gray Honda, a half hour away was my planner, carelessly placed there, by me, when my daughter hopped in so that she could drop me at the office.
Luckily, my mind stopped listening to the screeching sound it was making and the wheels started turning, I calmly called my daughter and frantically told her she needed to come straight to the airport. Then I divied up my bags among my colleagues and boss, asking them the check them in for me then proceed tom our gate while I waited I the yellow "loading and unloading" zone for my daughter to arrive.
Within forty minutes, she did, leaving me forty minutes to get through security and to my gate. I arrived at the gate with about twenty minutes to spare, grabbed myself a grande toffee nut latte, sat back to really take that inhale/ exhale this time. That is until I spilled that precious coffee completely all around me.
I looked at my boss, "You are really not having a good day, are you?" he asked. The best laid plans...…

d the offer in front of another competitor. Getting last minute input from their circles of influence of family, friends and people who are never satisfied with anything at anytime weigh-in and WAA LAA you get a last minute counter offer.
Most ambitious candidates, young and old, expect the best offer that can be given and they’re often surprised, and a little disheartened, when the offer hits below the mark they had hoped for—even when they’ve admitted they would accept a compensation package at a reasonable level. They have a number in mind and they want to get as close as they can to that number even at the expense of losing the job offer. There are such things as Prima Donnas and Prima Donnos (made that one up).
I had a retiring Colonel who, at the last minute requested plane fare for two poddles, blah, blah, blah. and this was way after the offer was accepted, relo was in motion...and he's heading to the airport on his way to his new job...last minute.
I got the headhunter to take one for the team effort here and pay the poodle fare. He did and we continue to be great friends to this day.…
and where did they get that much spanex.
@Chris, the worst thing about my pal with the fireglow green tongue piercing was that when he said something and started to close his mouth the thing would glow. The hiring manager who interviewed him said it was the most amazing thing she had ever witnessed. Like an alien. She could not remember a word he said, but thought he would do great as a traffic cone with a blinking light on it.
The next one i sent her was flown in from Pitttsburg. I mentioned to him that if he had any piercings he would need to remove them. He did. When i picked him up at the airport the first thing i noticed were the giant holes in his ear lobes. You could read the "pick up passengers here" sign through the holes. HIs ear lobes were so stretched that he looked like he had removed the wheel from a Ford 150. He didn't get hired either. However they did wonder what sound he would make if he stood out in the wind.…
of last resort (as it was during the Great Depression) if the private sector can't/won't fill the need, even through monetary/fiscal policy-application. Also, those public works/infrastructure improvements (roads, streets, highways, high-speed rail, bridges, tunnels, seaports, airports, schools, parks, water systems, smart grids, green retrofitting, etc.) benefit EVERYBODY. Even Adam Smith *thought this (public works) was a good thing for governments to do, and if we did it, we'd be like a big-*** Singapore, COMPETITIVE AS **** compared to the rest of the world. Can you suggest an alternative "non-make work" plan that will cause the private sector to quickly create 20M+ good jobs?
" I think staffing agencies have an opportunity to offer their clients a much higher caliber candidate..." I may be misunderstanding something here: ISTM that you're suggesting employers would/should be willing to hire LTU candidates with an agency-fee attached when they aren't prepared to hire many of them now without one?
