If it had turned out badly, this would definitely have been something that pisses me off. But all's well that ends only annoying, right?

We booked some airline travel a couple of months ago. 2 different trips/airlines so that Justine and I can meet up in Chicago for a few days. Each of us scheduled an early morning flight so that we'd arrive in Chicago at about the same time (Me: Delta/Midway, her Southwest/Midway). As things open up, they added flights and changed schedules for both of us. Delta moved most of its flights to O'Hare, I guess, so they put me on the only remaining flight into Midway, which took me BIL/SLC/ATLanta/CHI and arrived 12 hours after Justine. Took me 4 hours on hold to get that changed to something decent. So now I'm flying into O'Hare at noonish.

Justine was going OAK/MDW and Southwest did the same stunt, moving her to a 11pm arrival after going OAK/LAX/ATL/MDW. She was able to get a callback from Southwest so she didn't have to sit on hold, and they switched her to a straight shot easily. I guess the thing there was the computer defaulted to not allowing the system to book her for the earlier departure (20 minutes) because I can see where a lot of people might miss that flight.

So the annoying thing is why did people who booked early get dumped on the less desirable routes? It was pretty time-consuming to plan this out in the first place, then to have to fix it later? Guh.

Is he inquiring about the job he already declined? I don't know how I'd feel about that but I guess if he was right for it then, he's right now.
 
I am socially inept and often overshare or undershare personal info with no real sense of when it's appropriate to do so. Your interpretation is probably correct but there's always that.

 

There's a lot more backstory that makes it stick with me like it did. Decades of stuff that doesn't bear repeating here (it's not interesting, just part of the gestalt). So to have him now want to talk to me makes me think he's simply using my good natured-ness that he's wanted nothing of for all these decades.
So, not pissing me off. But annoying.

Over/undersharing without being appropriate? Brother!

Worked with Bob for 30+ years. A serious guy, but I respected him. Still, we never became good friends.

We retired simultaneously (same age) and with my new job I contacted him to see if he was interested in being part of it. He has different skills than me and would be a good addition. He declined, which is fine.

Since then he's called me twice. The first time, "how're you doing, Steely?" and I thought maybe I'd broken some ice. But, he just wanted info on a job I'd tried and didn't care for. So it was a fact finding mission on his part, not a friendly call.

Then, he calls me again yesterday. "How're things going, Steely?" and I mention the few things that have been interesting lately. He gives up no personal info, and..wants to know about the job I"m doing and is there room to hire him too.

So, it's annoying. I really want to block him, just so I don't get suckered into thinking he really cares about me, when really I'm just being Glassdoor for him. But, blocking someone I've known for 30+ years feels a little petty, right?

I have $2000 for you. Would you like it

Answer: "Lump sum." No "thanks, that's fantastic!" or address. 
 

I can send my address...just sayin'!
  


Well it was really a two-page advertisement, which the customer is paying $2000 for. I asked if they wanted it as one big ad file or two pdfs, and asked for the official size of their full page so I could build it right the first time. They said two pdfs and *crickets*
