The worlds worst Meteorologist

24 Oct 2010 4:57PM   Views : 566 Unique : 350

Good news at last, I have a job again. A job the interests and stimultes me, back in the sector for which I was originally trained. But that is not the reason for this submission. I want to tell you about an old friend of mine called Erik who was a qualified meteorologist.His only problem was that he was perhaps one of the worst weather predictors known to mankind. He even made the local press after our local dutch paper began keeping a record of his predictions and actaully showed that he had been wrong almost 300 times in a single year. This dire record inevitably led to Erik getting the sack. So to cut a long story short Erik decide to move down to the south of Holland where his repution was not known,and applied for a a similar job. One question on his job application asked for the reason for leaving his previous position. Erik wrote,”The climate didn't agree with me”.Wink

Nice story, However I would have considered a career change rather than a location change. I always try to see a good side to people and I must say I think that it was a bit harsh to say he was wrong 300 times in a year. May be we should say he was negatively right,in other words his predictions were so reliably wrong that you could just take the opposite of any advice he gave. Smile
Thanks for sharing
Cheers
Neil
