Inappropriate Quotes

Today, I received a recruiting email chock full of inappropriate quotes. When an author puts something in quotes, it’s their way of saying, “I don’t really believe what I’ve written to be true.”

In this case, he’s put quotes around just about every important detail of the message, suggesting that he doesn’t believe a god damn thing he’s written…Here’s what it looked like (names altered to protect the guilty, but otherwise in tact):

“Please feel free to contact, if you have any query.”

So what you’re saying is:

  1. You’re not sure what your name is,
  2. You’re not sure what the name of the position is
  3. You aren’t sure what the job description is
  4. You want me to share this with my friends (oh I will, just not in the way you’re asking)

I do actually have a query – run this:

DROP DATABASE contact_list;
