What's as bad is when the head hunter doesn't know sh*t from Shinola. I'm a technical writer who started when strings of ones and zeros were considered a high order language, and I even have a couple of books and papers on SDLC documentation.

Anyway, Ms. ShitForBrains calls me to ask if I've ever documented widgets and do I have experience with APIs. She doesn't know what either is, and after I explain it to her, she decides I can't do it and doesn't submit my CV.

She's probably right. There is a difference in documenting the stability augmentation system for the space shuttle and some animation for yet another social networking system.

Go figure.
