    There’s always the old-fashioned GOING TO SEE THEM, but I guess that’s passé.

    1. No. Not a chance.

    2. Which isn’t even close to the “never” that we’re going for!

    3. That should tell you something! What have we learned here?

    4. The longest month of your life—-and nothing will change by the end of it!

    I happen to be in a job search at the moment. Also in the past, I’ve been a hiring manager. It is amazing the difference in the speed of time on both sides.

    On the seeker side, time crawls with the speed of a glacier. On the hiring side, I often wondered if I could get it all done in two months.

    Reminds me of last night as I was out at a pub having a burger; four younger folks in their twenties were sitting together around a table, and each of them with their head bowed in worship to their smartphone.

    Where my granddaughter lives (Colorado), ‘ghosting’ is a pre-Halloween tradition where you anonymously leave a small white bag of treats at the door of three friends at night (so they find it in the morning) about a week or so before Halloween. The bag has a tag that says you’ve been ‘ghosted’ and instructs you to do the same. It’s fun, especially if you end up being ghosted in return.

    Ghosting is rude and cowardly. It is just like the old “I’ll call you” and never did. Still rude and cowardly.

    I’m sure the second from the left isn’t thinking and just watching porn.

    Here’s a thought: Keep all your communication face-to-face with the people who are important to you and leave worries about ghosting to Ebenezer Scrooge.
