Just annex Crimea.

Also, tell your friend to get some phishing protection just in case.

If this is for real, you could use paypal, or contact the hotel and pay them directly, with a little extra as "cash back" - spending money for your customer.

It isn't real. I'm sorry, I thought it was obvious. But I appreciate the help, haha!

It was, except that you said it was from a customer, suggesting that you know this individual personally.

This might be a simple form of spear phishing.

I had to go to church a few weeks ago. I hadn't been to church in at least 3-5 years. My first thoughts: holy crap this is some mind melting, brainwashy, guilt-tripping "word of God." Listening to it with a clear frame of mind as an outsider that's been away from the church, the organized religion sounded just like the scary cult **** you would see on 60 Minutes.

While I am not a Church goer or religious individual myself, this just sounds like you went to a bad church. I have been to quite a few sermons with close friends and family for various reasons and even attended a few weekend retreats and experienced a wide variation in the level of cultiness or brimstone and fire. There were quite a few preachers that I ran into that really impressed me with their general message.

It really depends on the church. I haven't gone regularly in probably a decade but I know exactly what you are talking about. It's had to go back, especially a to a church you attended in the past. Ryan_G hit the nail on the head. I generally have no problem with the message, its how its presented that is a turn off.

I've come to appreciate a lot of eastern philosophies (because not necessarily religion) and then of course there is Dudeism.

It was the church I went to when I was little. I don't ever remember it being like that when I was younger. There were two alter servers that were wearing PJ's and fluorescent gym shoes under their clothe also. The priest I remember would have made them walk barefoot before allowing that. Things have changed.

We had an elderly nun at my Catholic school that only wore bright fluorescent running shoes with a full on habit. She walked everywhere. I wonder if because of their vow of poverty, were nuns not allowed to drive. This was over 25 years ago.

Props to nuns. That's some dedication.

I was hoping someone would care about that.

Though technically it will probably not lead to rich Ukrainians. And also one less hot AG.

I've been reading through resumes for a position I'm trying to fill.
This is a first for me and I'm shocked at how awfully bad some of them are.

It seems like no one describes what exactly they do / did / know.

"worked on boilers" "knowledge in PLCs" "background in forklift operation"

uggh

I'd put "solely responsible for all product development."

You just listed word for word about 75% of the resumes sitting in front of me right meow.

I had to help a friend out with a resume a little while ago. Where his objective should have been, there was a basic list of things like "hard-working, dedicated," etc. I told him I lost interest after his name since, at a quick glance, I could not tell if there were any relevant skills or experience or goals. I didn't even know WHAT he did, since all the headings were company names (that I'd never heard of) instead of what his position/title was.

To top it off, his friends had him remove all the "fluff" from his resume such as relevant course work, training, etc. They told him he should bring that up to them in the interview. I told him leaving those keywords out means he won't even get to the interview. Guess who's been right so far?

There shouldn't be an objective on a modern resume unless you're still in college and even then its questionable. The objective is pretty useless and most employers couldn't give two ***** about it because it just boils down to "I would like to exchange my time and effort for your money."

I don't know, that may be entirely dependent on the company.
My boss recently shared with me some resumes for people applying for a test engineer position. Every single on had an objective statement. I asked him why that was, and he said he tossed all the ones without it.
