Out Sick #truestorytuesday

I have too many short funnies to keep to myself so for a while I will be sharing a series that we will call #TrueStoryTuesday, for your Tuesday amusement of course. These stories are just a random collection of real things – or at least things that have really been told to me or my team – over my time in HR. By the way if you have one you think is worth sharing, but need it to be anonymous feel free to email it to me 🙂

Of course the names have been changed to protect the innocent … and the guilty!

Billy Bob: Hey Jim Bob we missed you-you feeling better?

Jim Bob: Hey Billy Bob-all better now. Those dadgum squirrels I was telling you about in my attic? I took care of em-poison traps.

Billy Bob: Yeah?

Jim Bob: Yep! Then I cleaned me some squirrel and cooked it up real nice.

Billy Bob: The squirrels you poisoned?

Jim Bob: Yeah. Meat was real tasty, but that wasn’t such a good idea though… Doc says I basically poisoned myself since I ate them squirrels I poisoned.

nooooooooooo squirrel#scoutshonor that’s a real excuse that someone gave for being out sick: “Ate squirrels after poisoned said squirrels in own house”

My goal is to challenge the way we view, measure, and utilize HR and recruiting in a positive and encouraging way. I love working in HR and value the network of HR professionals that I also call friends. I'm always learning from my fellow HR pros and find comfort in their expertise. I'm an active member of my local SHRM chapter (NASHRM) and a total HR enthusiast! My HR related knowledge is a mix of recruiting, retaining, engaging and just plain helping people discover their passion. I'm a follower of Christ, Wife, Mom, Corporate Recruiter, Blogger, problem solver, runner, Sports FANATIC & Razorback surviving amongst the [crimson] tide! You can find me on twitter & Instagram: @HRecruit Snapchat: kminny32 Google+: https://plus.google.com/+KristinaMinyard LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/kristinahutto/ Thoughts here (and on all my social media channels) are mine and do not represent the thoughts/beliefs of my employer. Why would I name my blog HR Pockets? Read about it in my first post years ago!!

  1. We went to Hawaii in March and the housecleaner never once came to help us. On the last day she came upstairs just as we finished cleaning (she lived below the house, mind you) and apologized for never helping us because she had “rat poisoning” LOL. I’m thinking by rat poisoning she actually meant a hangover or drug addiction?
