    Conundrum

    Dear Annatic,

    Okay, I'm in a conundrum and want some advice from some other Cyclone Fanatics. I just was offered a job here in LA, unfortunately the two people I will be working closely with are both Hawkeyes. The job is only a month long, but we will be working pretty close, everyday for about 15 hours a day. I thought I was free and clear of all the stinking Hawkeye fans here in LA, but I can't get away. Can I get some advice from people that have to work and put up with Hawkeye fans on an everyday basis?

    From,

    Hopelessly Outnumbered

    Having lived in Arizona for 10 years I've discovered that Hawkeye fans seem to be less obnoxious once they've been separated from the herd of fellow Hawk fans in Iowa. They seem almost human. If it's an important job I think you could handle it. Of course it will be much easier if the Clones could somehow beat the Hawks in B-ball this year.

    Tough situation. My wife is a hawk fan, but I make her so miserable when the cyclones lose (especially to the hawks) that she now prefers iowa state wins.

    If that doesn't work, I would at least wait until after the Iowa v ISU bball game. If ISU loses, I'd quit while destroying all work that you did in the past month and a half. Otherwise, I'd throw it in their face every day until they quit.

    Just bandwagon onto UCLA for a month. You have a job to do and need to keep your sanity.

    Dude - take the cash. I worked for McLeod in Cedar Rapids for a year. You can deal with it -- unless the job stinks.

    Showing up to work drunk is usually a pretty dependable way to end employment.
