police investigates wife for five dead husbands

I think Betty was on to something.

Most of us can agree a job search is pretty stressful. Then throw in moving to a foreign country with different accreditations and degree system, time limit on a work visa, and the labyrinthian minefield that is recruiters who compete with one another.

A recent conversation between spouses:

Yael: (furiously scrolling the internet and typing emails) I am so nervous for the interview tomorrow. I don’t feel as prepared as I should. Can you come read this follow-up email I drafted, and help me prepare?

Bryan: (from the other room) I can’t find my brown pants.

Yael: Did you just hear me? I need help on this job prospect tomorrow.

Bryan: (throwing clothes around the guest bedroom) I can’t find my brown pants! Where are they??

Yael: You’re kidding, right? I have to ask you a question about this interview.

Bryan: I don’t see my brown pants anywhere!!!!!!!!!!!

Yael: ARE YOU SERIOUS? I AM SITTING HERE TALKING TO YOU ABOUT A POTENTIAL JOB. YOU KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR ME TO WORK. YOU KNOW I RELY ON YOUR SOUND ADVICE IN THESE MATTERS, AND ALL YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT IS YOUR BROWN PANTS. LIKE A RAINMAN CHILD. WHY DON’T YOU CHECK THE OTHER CLOSET OR THE CLOTHES TO BE IRONED, BESIDES STANDING IN ONE PLACE.

Bryan: (finding them in the other closet) You stole my brown pants.

    You totally stole my brown pants. Do you have a job interview?

    But, he’s the guy with the pants, right who marries the girl with the shoes? (according to your mom’s lovely wedding toast) You’ll have to go on a flat-wide emergency shoe search when that thing with the grey cord and Xbox happens .

    I might have to rewrite the toast.

    Good point Ames. I like where your head is at.

    I just want everyone to know I am taking the brown pants to the dry cleaners today. As G-d and the blogosphere as my witness.
