A candidate recently emailed me, “I’ve never had such a fun conversation about work.”
And this was through LinkedIn Recruiter, which isn’t synonymous with fun.
The LL Bean Catalog is fun.
Buying Houses of The Holy on Vinyl at Newbury Comics on a Friday afternoon after work at the Westchester Mall for only 30 bucks, it’s a steal trust me, is fun.
Your son admitting in the bubble that Led Zeppelin is his new favorite band over Motley Crue at 5 years old is fun.
Son says, “Daddy, Shout At That Devil was my favorite, but my new favorite is the one with the naked mermaids on the cover.”
Helping your daughter overcome her sleeping issues at 11 years old is fun.
“Matilda, I’ve got the perfect solution for your sleeping troubles. Have you ever heard of a channel called the BBC? Ted Talks might get the job done too.”
Later my daughter says, “Daddy, I saw one of the Ted Talks. Did you know that more people die from falling asleep at the wheel than from drunk driving”?
I say, “But Vince Mcmahon who only averages 3 hours a night for the past 4 decades and counting doesn’t care. Because he can afford to take the company limo instead.”
Presenting my daughter, a Squish-Mallow that resembles a sleeping Unicorn pig from Newbury Comics is fun.
I say, “This is only the sleep aid you need Matilda, but nice try Ted tries.”
Tonight, I spoke with a candidate about his interest in competitive weightlifting.
He laughed when I said, “Ok, so you’re not oiling yourself down at work.”
My youngest son asked his older brother, Arthur, “Who’s your favorite YouTuber?”
I felt a combination of cringy embarrassment and sucks to be you pity for his generation. But he’s only 5.
Plus, he’s way funnier than I’ll ever be.
Also, despite my assertions of every YouTuber sounding like a spurned intern for Reddit.
They’re still stimulating my son’s imagination, and making him laugh, which is more than Saved By The Bell ever did for my Gen X Generation.
Your Favorite YouTuber Personality is like your favorite Recruiter.
Neither take themselves too seriously.
Plus, they entertain, enlighten, and sell with fun filled relish.
I don’t know any of these Youtuber Personalities by name.
I’d like to think I’m still cooler than my kids.
Maya Angelou says, “People will always remember the way you make them feel.”
So, service fun I say.
I’d rather be remembered that way.
Servicing boring has a time and place.
But even accountants laugh.
I make them laugh all the time in my office.
I rest my case.
But flashing subtitles on LinkedIn don’t make you laugh or rattle your insides.
Service fun over boring.
Be gratefully different.
Be overwhelmingly fun.
Like Jim Morrison on Morrison Hotel amongst the scattered sun.
Servicing fun is money honey.
I’m a knockout artist like Gene Tunney.
I swear your honor.
My next swing is a goner.
Just stop telling me how Brian Cranston is must-see TV Boomer.
Your cred is shot.
I’d rather jerk off to Laura Loomer.
