HPOA = Highly Productive Office Assistant?

Posted by Rampant Coyote on August 10, 2010

Yeah, this has been like – everywhere today. I got no less than five links to it this afternoon. You probably did too. But hey, in case you didn’t, I’ll share. This is just too awesome. And it’s even game related! Farmville is mentioned!

Girl Quits Job With a Bang (and a Dry Erase Board)

And I had no idea what a “HPOA” was until I saw this. My guess would have been… uh, what I wrote in the title.

I laughed. I cheered. I hope she finds a good job soon. And I look forward to reading tomorrow’s update.

UPDATE: Bummer, I was afraid it was too good to be true…   thanks, Lexx! They’ve now come clean.

    You find the best links… I should buy a copy of Frayed Knights just as a thank you for the great blog.

    It’s a hoax, it’s a hoaxxx!


    Just saw it right now. Heh.

    There were plenty of hoax indications in retrospect, although at the time I just thought she was an amateur photographer quitting her day job in style. (Hence the perfect lighting on 30+ pictures of a whiteboard, held at different angles.)

    Ah, I didn’t think of the whiteboard thing. The HOPA / HPOA thing was what made me think it was fer real in spite of other indicators. Ah, well.

    And not to sound TOO cynical, but she is a little TOO cute and appealing… hair and make-up perfect, for example. Most people don’t realize that Hollywood “disheveled” hair is about four hours of work for a beautician to replicate.

    As for the situation, I could well believe it happening, but the outcome in the real world would, unfortunately, be more like “I hate him, but I really need this job…”

    Hopefully this little bit of fame and notice gives Ms. Elyse Porterfield further job opportunities. She did very well expressing emotion in stills, I hope it’s equally good in real-time. 🙂
