Most of you who frequent the IRC know I work with a variety og people. Since it has been so long I thought it'd be OK to reveal how HR reacted to my turning down candidates for assistant positions.
Our VP is 20+ years older than me, she is fit and has a stern motherly look. Think of your best teacher and then add auburn hair and kind eyes. Anyways, I needed two assistants and I was turning down too many so she called me into her office.
She asked, and I told her upfront that I did not and could not hire a fat person. It is a sign of gluttony and gluttony is not a character trait I want for anyone in my department. She agreed! Can you imagine? We spent the rest of the hour long meeting drinking tea and going through the facebook accounts of those who were in the short list.
Guess what? They were all fit as fuck.
