How to spare yersef limitless grief if you are still in the job market

The guy who did a head and valve job on my motorhome accidently stepped on my oil dip stick... put a kink in that sucker. wouldnt work after that. its a long one 42 inches. Grreat valve job though, engine runs like a fine clock now.
so I took the kinky dip stick to Kragen Auto supply, and was helped by a very brright confident and assured young man who said he had a replacement 'right here'...and handed me a bubble packed chrome dip stick about 14 inches long.....
ahhh sed... err. 'it looks a little short to me'. ..what is it a telescoping dip stick... he assured me that it was, and would fit anything.
still confident and somewhat patronizingly he said...'look, it will work, take it out and try it, if it doesnt work bring it back and we can exchange it'...he said with an air of competence and surity that would have done anyone proud.
He will no doubt be at a jiffy lube next, stripping out oil drain plug holes.

On other fronts, presented by another idiot.... Dr Dean Adel...but this time maybe he was right.. Dr Dean reported on a study that 38% of heart patients could not locate or identify the human heart in a diagram of the human body...
I thought that was exciting.... in all the world, only Mexico faired worse.

so now of course we have these in management... reviewing our resume's... well maybe yours.
I keep mine hidden.
When I get a resume request these days I tell them that I only submit if the interviewer can explain what an engineer in my business actually does... and explain to me why two space shuttles blew up, killing over 20 good men and a couple of wimens.
that spares me limitless grief.
