Well, the interview went about how I expected. He somewhat looked over my resume, asked me about my last job, then attempted some sales pitch about how their company takes people like me and makes them management material in 4-8 months.
Sniffed out that BS real quick. Went on to try and explain the process, started with Marketing (since that's what I said I was interested in), then tried to move the process to Sales without me noticing.
As soon as I heard the word "Sales", I passed. Not a sales guy in the first place, and based off the testimony I had read about the company, they put their salesmen in impossible situations. Moving them to stores in the boondocks of NC, almost completely commission-based, don't reimburse for gas. No thank you.
So I've watched over a season of Weeds today (well...the last 12 hours) and also went to class and watched a hockey game during that time. So that's 13 episodes in 8.5 hours. Or ~6 out of a possible 8.5 hours occupied watching the same TV show.
This is crazy. I'm as big of a fan of social sharing as anyone, but do we actually live in the moment and experience anything any more?
I was thinking about this at a concert where it seemed like everyone had their phones up recording.
What are they recording it for? Does anyone in the world actually sit and watch handheld video of live music? I mean, I get recording your favorite part of your favorite song, but after that you're just wasting phone memory.
