In the current employment crisis, thousands of highly educated workers are flooding the marketplace. Due to economic circumstances, many of them will accept jobs for which they are overqualified.

I desperately hope one of them takes a job from the guy at a local establishment who answered the phone this morning.

Guy: Good Morning! This is Guy. How can I help you?
Frume Sarah: Hi! Can you tell me what time you close on weeknights?
Guy: Sure! We close at 11:00pm on Saturdays.

Now how is that helpful, Guy?

    Clearly he understands that since shabbat is over before they close, Sat. night is just another weeknight.

    It just goes to show that most assistants don’t actually listen to you and then answer without thinking.
