Some people are just unbelievable, Pat. One American contacted me on Linkedin and said that he had chosen me to get him a job in Saudi Arabia. Told him to get lost. If he had said he would be willing to pay me 25% of his salary the first year I would have done it. But he felt I should be honoured to do it for free for him.
Beth, I send those people messages saying that I can not recommend them because I don't know them. If they want to get rid of me as a connection it's fine with me. I have most likely already removed them.
Yes, Donna, basic decency and respect would go a long way. But they are so into looking after number one they can't think straight it seems:-)
Do you respect people you don't know who recommended you; Lenie? Would you trust their advice?
The latter is so true, Cheryl. One woman in Sweden got furious because she was not allowed to spam a group on Facebook. She managed to get hold of the telephone number of one of the administrators, called him up and threatened him. That's actually the worst I have heard.
Glad you agree with me, Tim.
Couldn't have said it better myself, Susan.
Glad it was timely, Jacgueline. Have been chased like that by people as well for all kinds of reasons. What works best is to just ignore them. The worst are men that are complete strangers that fall in love with you on social media. Seriously, something has to be very wrong with a person who falls in love like that. The worst one used to pop up everywhere writing "Catarina, I have found you". Again, if you ignore them they eventually stop bothering you. The guy in question bothered me for about half a year. Then has been quiet for years. About a month ago he sent me a messege that I just deleted. Good luck with your author:-)
Glad you agree, Diana.
The reason for giving high grades is because the main objective of schools are to make profit. And, Deidre, that US system is unfortunately being exported to Europe. The reason for the high unemployment world-wide is a formula that Milton Friedman came up with in 1968. His formula "proves" that keeping employment high keeps inflation low. Paul Krugman had a go at Sweden for doing so. Consequently the Swedish central bank lowered interest rates. And suddenly more companies decided to employ more staff. The sooner the world stops implementing Friedman's policies the better. They crashed the world economy in 2008 but are still being implemented.
