I got articulate-ed (lol)


So I was talking to my recruiter yesterday and he was telling me what the interviewers said about me…and of course “articulate” was in his summary. DRAT! But…the situation is a little different for me…

I’m an accountant…and please don’t pretend you haven’t heard any accountant jokes! lol. And in case you haven’t…

Q. Why do some accountants decide to become actuaries?
A. They find bookkeeping too exciting.
Q. What’s the difference between the male sperm and an accountant?
A. The sperm has a 1 in 250,000 chance of becoming human.
And, on a related topic,
Q. What does an accountant use for birth control?
A. His personality.

OH!…that’s why I’m single?!? lol.

So…I don’t know if my recruiter/interviewer were surprised that I was:
1. Articulate for a black person
2. Articulate for an accountant
3. Articulate for a black accountant.

    I am soooo tired of people telling me I’m articulate… What does it mean? You ever heard someone say that about a white person? It’s as if that’s the first thing that pops in their mind and that shouldn’t be the case. Good Luck with the job hunting though.
