How many weeks do you want your ad to run? 1 week 2 weeks 3 weeks Family Matters When my nephew got his first job, he was very nervous about making mistakes. In trying to tell him it wouldn't be that bad, I shared with him my very first job experience. "One summer I was a door-to- door vacuum salesman," I explained. "After being rejected several times, I tried a new approach on the next house. The woman answered the door hold- ing a broom, so I made her an offer. I told her that I could vacu- um her hardwood floors in half the time it took her to sweep or I'd clean them for free!" Now having my nephew's attention I continued, "She accepted my offer, and then told me the power was out." "So what did you do?" my nephew asked. "Well," I admitted, "I spent the next two hours sweeping her floors!" (Thanks to James D.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane "Cash" Holze & Todd "Carry" Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com Fast Facts Dear Classified Guys, I'm a fortunate fellow. I have a great wife, two kids, and unlike many these days, I should be able to keep my home. That's because I've been at the same job for 15 years now. Unfortunately, it's in the banking industry, and we all know it's a little topsy-turvy currently. I do worry that my job could end any day, so I'm active- ly looking for anything new. I'm searching online, contacting old friends in the industry, trying to network and reading the classifieds. Just the other day I saw an ad for a "Look Busy When You're Not" seminar. I thought it was a joke, but called and found out it was a real three-day seminar that trains you on how to give your boss the impression you are working hard when you're not. The premise is that if there is a choice between two people to lay off, the guy that always looks busy and is working hard proba- bly stays. Sounds brilliant! My wife thinks I'm nuts for consid- ering to attend. What do you guys think? • • • Cash : I think it would be funny to go and see your boss at the same seminar! Carry : While the seminar may sound interesting, you may not want to rush and add it to your expense report. Whenever the job market becomes tight or there is an increase in layoffs, it's common for people to become fearful of losing their jobs. Even people who have been with a company for 15 years begin to question their job security. Cash : This fear creates a new market for seminars that offer tips on how to keep your job. Most of these seminars are best used as entertainment. Carry : We've seen some that promote all sorts of ideas like walking quickly through hallways with a clipboard or papers in your hand. That way people will assume you're going somewhere important, even if it's just a trip to the bathroom. Cash : There was one that sug- gested using a spray bottle to make yourself look like you were sweating from working so hard or setting up your email to send after you had left for the day to make it look like you stayed late. Carry : Although cute, these types of ideas are short lived. You're best bet is to continue look- ing for new opportunities like you're doing. In the meantime, just do the best job you can. Because in the end, if you're not that busy, then looking the part won't help! Ask the Guys Does this arborist use hair clippers? ©The Classified Guys ® 03/30/14 Personally Yours While many people feel over- worked these days, the truth is many of us are wasting more time at work than we realize. Although every survey varies slightly, the trend is clear. We are not as pro- ductive as we think we are. According to a recent survey, most employees waste 16 hours out of their 45-hour workweek. Salary.com and America Online surveys found similar results. They claim we work the equiva- lent of only three days each week, misspending almost 2 full days of time. Kind of Management Are you scared of being fired? Fearful of your boss? How you feel about your boss can significantly influence your job performance. A survey by the American Management Association found that 70% of those working for kind bosses said they were working as hard as they could and nearly 84% of them enjoyed their workday. On the contrary, of those who rated their bosses as unkind, only 54% said they were working hard and a mere 32% said they enjoyed their day or looked forward to the next workday. • • • Got a question or funny story?
