Tony is a UI engineer. He gets a lot of recruiter spam. Usually it’s related to his skillset.
This time, however, the recruiter was looking for a filesystems engineer.
They had this hilarious exchange:
Recruiter: We’re looking for somebody with 7-10 years of experience writing filesystems.
Me: The only person I know with that level of experience writing filesystems is Hans Reiser.
Recruiter: Have you worked with Hans before? Can you send me his resume?
Recruiter: You are too funny! We’re willing to let our developers telecommute but the state penn. wasn’t quite what we had in mind. Thanks for making me smile though :)
