MAN RULES

AT LAST A GUY HAS TAKEN THE TIME TO WRITE THIS ALL DOWN
FINALLY, the guys' side of the story. ( I MUST ADMIT, IT'S PRETTY GOOD.)

WE ALWAYS HEAR 'THE RULES' FROM THE FEMALE SIDE
NOW HERE ARE THE RULES FROM THE MALE SIDE

THESE ARE OUR RULES!

PLEASE NOTE. THESE ARE ALL NUMBERED #1 ON PURPOSE!

1. MEN ARE NOT MIND READERS.

1. LEARN TO WORK THE TOILET SEAT. YOU'RE A BIG GIRL. IF IT'S UP, PUT IT DOWN. WE NEED IT UP, YOU NEED IT DOWN. YOU DON'T HEAR US COMPLAINING ABOUT YOU LEAVING IT DOWN.

1. CRYING IS BLACKMAIL.

1. ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT. LET US BE CLEAR ON THIS ONE:

SUBTLE HINTS DO NOT WORK!
STRONG HINTS DO NOT WORK!
OBVIOUS HINTS DO NOT WORK!
JUST SAY IT!

1. YES AND NO ARE PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE ANSWERS TO ALMOST EVERY QUESTION.

1.. COME TO US WITH A PROBLEM ONLY IF YOU WANT HELP SOLVING IT. THAT'S WHAT WE DO. SYMPATHY IS WHAT YOUR GIRLFRIENDS ARE FOR.

1. ANYTHING WE SAID 6 MONTHS AGO IS INADMISSIBLE IN AN ARGUMENT. IN FACT, ALL COMMENTS BECOME NULL AND VOID AFTER 7 DAYS.

1. IF YOU THINK YOU'RE FAT, YOU PROBABLY ARE. DON'T ASK US.

1. IF SOMETHING WE SAID CAN BE INTERPRETED TWO WAYS AND ONE OF THE WAYS MAKES YOU SAD OR ANGRY, WE MEANT THE OTHER ONE.

1. YOU CAN EITHER ASK US TO DO SOMETHING OR TELL US HOW YOU WANT IT DONE. NOT BOTH.
IF YOU ALREADY KNOW BEST HOW TO DO IT, JUST DO IT YOURSELF.

1. WHENEVER POSSIBLE, PLEASE SAY WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO SAY DURING COMMERCIALS.

1. CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS DID NOT NEED DIRECTIONS AND NEITHER DO WE...

1. ALL MEN SEE IN ONLY 16 COLORS, LIKE WINDOWS DEFAULT SETTINGS..
PEACH, FOR EXAMPLE, IS A FRUIT, NOT A COLOR. PUMPKIN IS ALSO A FRUIT. WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT MAUVE IS.

1. IF WE ASK WHAT IS WRONG AND YOU SAY 'NOTHING,' WE WILL ACT LIKE NOTHING'S WRONG. WE KNOW YOU ARE LYING, BUT IT IS JUST NOT WORTH THE HASSLE.

1. IF YOU ASK A QUESTION YOU DON'T WANT AN ANSWER TO, EXPECT AN ANSWER YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR..

1. WHEN WE HAVE TO GO SOMEWHERE, ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING YOU WEAR IS FINE...REALLY.

1.. DON'T ASK US WHAT WE'RE THINKING ABOUT UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED TO DISCUSS SUCH TOPICS AS FOOTBALL OR MOTOR SPORTS.

1. YOU HAVE ENOUGH CLOTHES.

1 .. YOU HAVE TOO MANY SHOES.

1. I AM IN SHAPE. ROUND IS A SHAPE!

1.. THANK YOU FOR READING THIS. YES, I KNOW, I HAVE TO SLEEP ON THE COUCH TONIGHT.. BUT DID YOU KNOW MEN REALLY DON'T MIND THAT? IT'S LIKE CAMPING...

PASS THIS TO AS MANY MEN AS YOU CAN - TO GIVE THEM A LAUGH...

PASS THIS TO AS MANY WOMEN AS YOU CAN - TO GIVE THEM A BIGGER LAUGH, BECAUSE ITS TRUE!

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.
Later, when the nurses were going through his meagre possessions, They found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.
One nurse took her copy to Melbourne .. The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas editions of magazines around the country and appearing in mags for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem.
And this old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.


Cranky Old Man.....
What do you see nurses? . . .. . .What do you see?
What are you thinking .. . when you're looking at me?
A cranky old man, . . . . . .not very wise,
Uncertain of habit .. . . . . . . .. with faraway eyes?
Who dribbles his food .. . ... . . and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice . .'I do wish you'd try!'
Who seems not to notice . . .the things that you do.
And forever is losing . . . . . .. . . A sock or shoe?
Who, resisting or not . . . ... lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding . . . .The long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking?. .Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse .you're not looking at me.
I'll tell you who I am . . . . .. As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, .. . . . as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten . .with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters .. . . .. . who love one another
A young boy of Sixteen . . . .. with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now . . .. . . a lover he'll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty . . . ..my heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows .. .. .that I promised to keep.
At Twenty-Five, now . . . . .I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide . . . And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty . .. . . . . My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other . . .. With ties that should last.
At Forty, my young sons .. .have grown and are gone,
But my woman is beside me . . to see I don't mourn.
At Fifty, once more, .. ...Babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children . . . . My loved one and me.
Dark days are upon me . . . . My wife is now dead.
I look at the future ... . . . . I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing .. . . young of their own.
And I think of the years . . . And the love that I've known.
I'm now an old man . . . . . . .. and nature is cruel.
It's jest to make old age . . . . . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles .. .. . grace and vigour, depart.
There is now a stone . . . where I once had a heart.
But inside this old carcass . A young man still dwells,
And now and again . . . . . my battered heart swells
I remember the joys . . . . .. . I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living . . . . . . . life over again.
I think of the years, all too few . . .. gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people .. . . . .. . . open and see.
Not a cranky old man .
Look closer . . . . see .. .. . .. .... . ME!!


Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who you might brush aside without looking at the young soul within ... . . .
we will all, one day, be there, too!

I have a full time position open for a Linux SysAdmin in the San Antonio, TX area.  I need someone who loves problem solving and is well versed in command line / scripting / SQL queries.  This would be 3rd shift so if you are or know of any Linux vampires I would love to chat.  (Schedule 3x12 - work 3 days off 4).  Unfortunately no telecommute or H1 sponsorship.  You can reach me at mark.lucio@kellyit.com

That is true +Beorn Borg however the third shift guys usually move to first shift after a certain amount of time (think of working third shift as the hazing ritual of many tech companies) or get promoted into another department which again they move to first shift.

My Top Ten Resume Tips:

I work with a lot of people looking for new career opportunities and thought I would share a few free personal tips for those of you who might be in the job market or know of someone who is.

1)  Make sure you use common fonts (such as Arial or Calibri) and nothing fancy.  The reason for this is because you will be sending your resume to different people who may be using a different computer than you are.  I once had a candidate send her resume to me and I sent it along to the hiring manager without checking the font accident and the manager gave a hard no because she was on a Mac and the font came out as fancy cursive.  Also, some fonts just don't look professional.  Naturally these rules may change if you are applying for a creative type position such as marketing or graphic artist, in that case knock yourself out.

2)  Gaps in employment - this is more common these days with layoffs, furloughs and whatnot but it is still a good idea to fill these if you can (don't fudge though) with things you have done in between jobs such as volunteer work.

3)  Under no circumstances are you to use colors on your resume other than black.  Yellow, green, blue, red, etc. are unacceptable especially for the background of the page.  Also, please don't use neon colors as they tend to burn the retinas of anyone who tries to read a digital version of your resume.

4)  Don't come across as a Lone Wolf or self centered.  Look over your resume and see how many times you use I (as in, I did this, I did that, I oversaw the blah blah blah).  Instead, make sure you use the word "we" as this will show you to be more of a team player and someone who may work well with others.

5)  If you are leaving the military and entering the private sector, please get rid of all of the acronyms as most hiring managers have no idea what they mean.  Also, try to highlight duties that may translate well to the position you are applying for.

6)  It is OK to have several versions of your resume that are tailored to different positions highlighting different aspects of your job duties.

7)  Don't write out all of your experiences and duties in one section and list your jobs with dates / times in another.  Hiring managers want to see when you worked with certain technologies / methods / hardware / etc and for how long.

8)  Resume length - a good rule of thumb is one page for entry level or just a few years of experience, two pages is OK for more but you can still stick with the one page format if you prefer.  One suggestion is to submit a one page resume and bring a more in depth version with you to the face to face interview detailing your experience further.  If you are a C level exec with 25+ years experience spearheading multiple international projects, you can have a longer resume as there should be quite a bit of responsibilities and duties to list.

9)  If you are out of work and are trying to find new employment I would refrain from spamming your resume to multiple positions at a company as you may come across as desperate right off the bat.  Find the best position that matches your skill set and submit your resume for that one.  Multiple copies of your resume to the same HR person or recruiter will not improve your chances.

10)  Try not to include photos or other personal information that is unnecessary.  I tend to see this more with resumes from certain countries other than the US / Canada so I do understand that this can be common practice in other areas.  Also, you do not need to include references on the resume but can instead put "References available upon request".

So I have been sick for the past week and somewhere in my delirium I had an epiphany.  I now understand why men are such babies when we get sick!  It all harkens back to our hunter-gatherer ancestors who used to roam wild forests with little more than a loincloth and a pointy stick.

When our cave man relative became ill, even something as trifling as the sniffles, we would lose some of our razor sharp hunting abilities.  A predator could be upwind from us and we would never know it because we couldn't sniff them out.  Once hindered by illness, a lone wolf or sabre-tooth cat could get the jump on us and with no claws or sharp teeth of our own we needed every possible advantage!

I believe men adapted this behavior as a defense mechanism to keep us safe at home whenever we were not operating at 100%.  I for one know that if I rounded a corner and a hungry Smilodon was hanging about up to no good that I would want to be on top of my A game.  I'm sure Cro-magnon wife probably didn't understand and thought we were just laying about doing nothing useful, but this was really just us trying to get back to full health as quickly as possible so we could go back out there and kill something to make you that new pair of fur shoes you've been asking us for without getting killed!

However (once back up to full health) I'm positive our cave man ancestor would spring out of bed, slap cave wife on the butt and charge off into the tundra with his trusty spear to stab more innocent woodland creatures and protect his tribe.  MYSTERY SOLVED.
