So I applied for a position at Company X today.
Directly after doing so, I IM’d a friend asking if he knew somebody at that company that he could put in a recommendation with. He gave a name of somebody there that we both knew, Doug, and I responded with “Roger,” as in I understand what he said.
I then emailed another ex coworker if he would put in a reco for me, knowing for a fact that he one tons of people there.
“But Rex, don’t you know Roger (at Company X)?”
Excuse me? Oh yeah, come to think of it I do (barely) know a guy at Company X named Roger. But I happened to use “Roger” too, by the other meaning.
