That's still better than one idiot who contacted me a month ago.
One of my coworkers had just left, and management decided to try a few new recruiters out. One of the s was so ing eager to spam every developer in the region that he couldn't even be bothered to check if I was already working for the company that hired him to post my ex-coworkers job.
The only "good" part of the affair is that that act of stupid probably permanently disqualified the idiot from ever doing work for us in the future.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

After reading the post and all the replies I come to three conclusions:
1) The title of your post should be "Lazy Recruiters". They don't take the time to re-read their e-mail before sending it. I will admit that their English is better than my whatever their native tongue is, and that this might be the problem.
2) Spell checkers are evil but necessary as no on that came from school at any level in the past 30 years or so can spell worth a damn.
3) The puns you guys do are really bad. Please keep it up.
Maybe they just need someone to "cook the books". (with apologies to Julia Child and accountants everywhere)
