"I guess you do not have to believe in God but so many good things happened to me and I am grateful. So there should be someone to   express   the gratitude to.'

F. Iskander

The   Human   Place

Everything    I describe here really happened.

  1. Highlander Among Us

 

This took place   in   late 1990s   when I was an engineering supervisor on a very   tough project. I   worked   at least 70   hours a week and   still could not   cover the whole scope. Deadlines were swiftly approaching and   everyone was very nervous, me especially because for me it was the first big one.   No wonder   that   I at first did not even pay attention to a resume   someone put on my desk. It    had notes from   lots   of supervisors before me. Obviously, nobody was interested.

It was already dark outside when I   decided   to go home. I picked up the resume and started reading it   on   the way to   the exit.   I read it once. Then I stopped, Then I read it again.   Then I turned back to my   office   and sent a short e-mail to   HR:

-           This person must be hired on the spot, no questions asked.

In the morning     I got a call from HR:

-           Hey, Mark,   did you send this message?

-           Yes,   I sure did.

-           What's the idea? Nobody wanted him before you.

-           Do you have a copy of the resume?

-           Yes, here.

-           Read the first paragraph word- by-word.

There was a pause on the other side and then the HR- person chuckled:
