And stop sending me junk mail!

Ring, ring.

Simon: Hello?

Dude: Hi Simon, this is so-and-so from Distinguished Academic Press. I'm calling about your resume.

Simon: Okay.

Dude: Now, this position is in Manhattan. I understand you live outside of Manhattan?

Simon: laughs


Simon realizes Dude actually has no clue where anything is located north of Yonkers. For all he knows, dragons live there, in the hinterlands.

Simon: Yes. Several hours outside of Manhattan.

Dude: Oh. Really? Wow. Well, we'll call you for a phone interview if we don't fill this position with people we can bring in directly.

Simon: Thank you so much. Goodbye.

All I can think is, surely this press has published an atlas he could look at sometime?

Wow - that would be funny if it weren't so predictable (and sad).

I thought the same thing.

Can you apply for Dude's job? I don't think he's going to have it for very long if he can't locate anything outside of Manhattan.
