Had an interesting morning here at TCTPMS. My boss, myself and a colleague spent the morning interviewing candidates for an open position. What made it so interesting was how differently each of us perceived to be the candidates strenghth's & weaknesses, and also what we each considered a priority. And while we all had different criteria and perspectives we all agreed on who the best choice was. Another thing we all agreed on what that hiring is a crapshoot. The seemingly most qualified person? Could turn out to be a total washout while the other guy? The one that you had some reservations about? Could be a natural. And of course that got me thinking about dating and meeting men. About what a fucking crapshoot it is. How you can meet someone who is seemingly so good on paper (loves cats and is kind to old ladies) and turns out to be the world's biggest dick and the other guy? The one that you had some reservations about (he thought Wedding Crashers was funny) turns out to be a natural. You just really never know. I need to keep my mind and options open and stop making sweeping judgements. Maybe getting the boss and colleague to come with me on the dates wouldn't be such a bad plan either.
