I’m not quite as strong on fraud, but I AM willing to learn


And now that my temper is up, I may as well go on and abuse every body I can think of.
— Mark Twain, Innocents Abroad

I’ve made fun in the past of the awful job-matching algorithm at The Ladders. Here’s my favorite email of that sort in recent days.

“Director of Fraud and Abuse.” True, I have plenty of experience abusing various politicos — some of you have remarked on the fact — but I’m a babe in the woods when it comes to fraud. I am, however, willing to learn. Would they send me someplace special?

    With your allergies, food security is important….jk, because food security is about making sure kids won’t go hungry.

      Well, yeah. But I wasn’t reacting to that one. I was reacting to “Director of Fraud and Abuse.”

      Reminds me of an episode of “The Beverly Hillbillies.” Mr. Drysdale sets up a corporation for the Clampetts, naming Jed president and Granny vice president and so on.

      Granny later objects to her title. She says she had Jethro look up “Vice,” and “I don’t wanna be president of no such goings-on!”

      She uses paint to change the title on her door to “Nice President.”
