The day in the life of an HR Professional is varied and quite funny, if you have daily interactions with employee populations and/or if you are a Recruiter. Per my last post, “I cannot take you seriously with an email address like that” the shock and awe factor with my work is never-ending and a constant source of entertainment. So the “Grinds My Gears” post for today is directed at those people who send email blast when looking for work. Read the rest of this entry »

I work in Human Resources, I have for the last 7 years. I am a Sr. Generalist/Recruiter and everything in between. I am Mom, Sister, Therapist, Physician, Task Master and I love every minute of it! In saying that I see all kinds of things, adults, grown-a$@ people throwing temper tantrums, throwing things at each other, cussing ( not cursing but cussing) each other out and saying the most asinine things imaginable during the interview process.
So today, like most days, I brought Macie breakfast because otherwise she will be eating random things… like summer sausage and crackers or random produce that she pulles out of her purse. Out of the kindness of my dear, sweet little heart ( because I am a bubbly ray of sunshine coated in sweetness) I brought Shipley’s donut holes to share with the floor. For those of you who don’t know what Shipley’s is, it has to be the BEST donut place EVER! So I send an email to my wonderful coworkers “Byler” and “Tandy” ( I have changed the names to protect the guilty) letting them know that I had brought treats.
Me: I have donut holes @ my desk
“Byler”: You are evil…..down right evil.
Me: At least I brought holes rather than entire donuts…
“Tandy” : Has the foolishness started already! I have already eaten (enough for the entire day). Thanks though!
I thought my logic was sound, donut holes are smaller and therefore less fattening but still delicious!! A few minutes after the above exchange, I hobbled ( I am having knee issues) over to their area and joked with “Tandy” about me being admonished for bring donut holes. She told me that she was too through with my foolishness, ragged on me about my knee brace and sent me on my way, laughing the entire time! I quipped that I was leaving anyway due to someone assaulting the snack machine, pouting and stomping off for good effect.
So another day begins filled with laughter, random emails and fake pouting on my part.
Happy Hump Day Everyone!
