Unemployed For A Reason

I got a call tonight from a pleasant sounding woman from Pennsylvania. She was conducting a reference check on a guy named David. David put my name down as a reference since he supposedly performed some work on my vehicle and was seeking a position doing mechanic work somewhere in Pennsylvania.

Only problem is that I don't know any "David" and nobody has done any work on my car in a while. I asked for more information, maybe it would help jog my memory and help me remember this David person.

I asked how she got my number and she said David provided it, the name was right, the number, obviously was right as well. She said he lived at an address on my same street, but about 9 numbers off. Literally three houses up and across the street.

The only thing I could think of was that it is one of the hillbillies that love to run their souped-up cars around the neighborhood. Problem is that this David character is so clueless, that he provided this employment service with the name, address and number of the guy he thought he did some engine work for.

Next time I see him, I'll let him know that I couldn't give him a reference.

hey they are looking for deadbeats when they do that. I got a call on one of my neighbors as well for a "job reference".
