total stupidity only happens when the government gets involved.
A long story made short, so as to not bore you all too much.
The government idiots have contacted me 3 times lately.
They are asking questions about the economy, and how its affected my business.
When asked how many employees I may have had to lay off, terminate, or at least cut the hours worked. I replied with "0".
Under other comments, I said if I could find qualified people, I would hire 2 more employees.
Well ever since they keep asking me more and more questions, about why my business is so busy in a down economy.
But mostly why if I need more staff, I don't just hire them.
Well yesterday they called again, and asked me "WHY" I cannot find staff that are qualified.
I responded with, " I even ran ads in 4 different publications, but not 1 qualified person responded"
This was not good enough though.
Instead she rambled on and on, and kept wasting my time.
I tried nicely to say I had to go.
Later I just flat said I have to go, bye.
Well nothing worked, so I just hung up.
I could see her trying to call back numerous times, so just never answered the phone.
Today 2 idiots showed up, because they could not reach me by phone.
More questions, and more time wasted.
I took them to where we have 4 projects in progress, and said if you can find me someone that can do this sort of work, to perfection, and does not need babysitting, let me know.
Otherwise please piss off and stop wasting my time, I am already behind.
That seemed to get their attention, and they started to leave.
Only to ask me when it would be convenient to "Follow up with me".
I said NEVER.
They said okay, we will not call for a few weeks.
How the heck do people get so stupid.
Maybe they have nothing but free time, but others are busy, and want to be left alone.
I hate our useless government.
I just needed to rant, feel better now, thanks.
