Lisa came into my bedroom right before leaving for work.
“Look Donna! I’m dressed like Stevie Wonder!”
She wore a black tiered skirt with black slouchy boots. She spun in a circle and began to sing, “I climbed a mountain and I turned around!”
“Lisa, that’s not Stevie Wonder, that’s Stevie Nicks.”
“Same thing.”
“No, not at all.”

    It is so obvious that she didn’t fall far from the tree. You should keep a list of her malaprops, etc…..there might be a book or comedy routine waiting to be written. Shecky Greene was famous for his routine based on that kind of material.

    I had almost forgotten what those entertainers looked like 30 years ago. Thanks for the
    trip down memory lane.

    Here is a tip (free of course…because it’s not worth much) on job-hunting:

    The “financial planner” interviewing process involves:

    a. Taking a 1-2 hour intelligence test that separates humans from one-celled amoebas.

    b. An “informational meeting” that consists of
    some fast-talking huckster describing how YOU…
    YES, YOU LITTLE LADY…can make $100K in 3 years!
    (never mind that there’s a 99% attrition rate
    over 3 years).

    c. And then they ask you to name “all the people you know” (in other words, BEFORE even hiring you, they want to use you, FOR FREE, as a job lead machine. Just fork over about 25-50 names of potential customers, and they MIGHT hire you….but they PROBABLY will, because you’re such a fantastic candidate!

    (I’ve gone through interviews with two of these types of companies already…major companies you’ve heard of…and companies I’ll never buy from now that I know their hiring process)
