I met with a recruiter from a different place today. What's a polite way to say "I don't think you have my best interests at heart and I don't really want to have anything further to do with you or your company?"

I'm fairly confident that the polite way is to say it exactly like that, but then add "with baked potatah's." That'll clarify the position, but in a "I kinda respect him for voicing his opinion" kind of way.

That would probably have the desired effect, but I think I'll try something else.

Just got the call from the folks that I interviewed with right after I got laid off. The offer letter and background check paperwork is on the way.

Starting August 3. I'm not even sure why they had me fill out the background check stuff since they called me about 30 minutes after I sent in the online portion through the OPM website and told me that I had cleared security.

Cancellation memo went through, so UTWiz's buddies in government services are officially off the hook.

In other news, I should be hearing about my promotion or lack thereof before the end of the week.

Boom. Promoted to Regional IT Auditor. No more Leaky Vag Girl or Herpes Guy. Time for 2 weeks of goldbricking and dick tugging while I wait to get transitioned over.
