  1. Hard to believe, but at one point I had a client, an HR VP reject
    a candidate who he thought was “strange” because he smiled
    throughout most of the interview and seemed “too happy”.
    Fortunately, that was an unusual occurrence and that particular VP
    never seemed to enjoy much in life. Smile, cuz you can. TOM

    This reminds me of my recent hassles with two corporate email systems that were filtering out all emails from my main address; upon investigation, the reason was that the word “happiness” was considered a spam trigger. This, I assess, is a very sad thing. BUt all is now well, and so I’m back to smiling!
