A Few Case Histories
Lady in charge of hiring employees for a large corporation
seeks my services at times. In this particular instance she
had choices between 6 applications for 2 positions. She liked
one of the applicants, but I advised her against that choice
because I saw a problem with promptness and dependability.
This woman put her two kids before her job and would miss
a lot of work because of that.
the Lady interviewed this woman, it appeared that I had been
mistaken. The woman had no children, so she was hired. Shortly
thereafter the problems in her tardiness and no-shows became
apparent. When questioned, it turned out the woman had two
"BABIES" - her dogs. That was however not reason
for dismissal and created a lot of stress for the co-workers.
friend is a small business owner
I help him hire a secretary. I scanned the application of
the person up for consideration. I advised him this was not
a good choice, because this person was underhanded and not
honest. He, however liked her and hired her against my better
later the women went to lunch. She never returned. She never
called with an explanation. She filed for unemployment, stating
personal differences. He objected and appealed the decision.
He lost. She had lied on her application and worked just long
enough to finish her required quarter for unemployment.
financially and was unable to replace her. Lack of funds.
called me requesting I help them find their daughter, she
had disappeared. I asked for the age of the daughter, reason
being I will not intrude in someone's space and privacy. A
parent or guardian can make that decision in case of a child.
When dealing with an adult, only suspicion of foul play is
expectable to me. In this case a missing person report had
been filed. To illustrate how strange some of these conversations
can be when trying to accomplish this, I will quote the conversation
as it took place.

a while to compose herself. Was almost out of gas and spend

you so very much for giving me something to look for and the
hope I needed. Before you called me, all I could do is sit
in front of my window watching and hoping my son would come
home. Between the rumors and unanswered questions I didn't
know what to think. He is back? Is he safe? Where is he? I
was literally falling apart.
January 30th, which was the coldest day of the year I was
fixing dinner. Jacob asked me if he could go outside to throw
snowballs with a friend. I told him dinner would be ready
in 5 minutes. So I let him. Dinner was done, no Jake. Half
an hour went by and I could not find him. After hours we called
the police. We went thrue his room and found some of his clothes
were gone. Then we had to accept that he ran away. That boy
was 14, thin, stringy blond hair. The police told me my son
was not safe with this boy, he was in a lot of trouble. His
father is a good talker, a preacher. This boy had convinced
my son he was also in trouble and that I had already called
the police. No matter what, he would be arrested and taken
to a place called Green Hill, a home for boys. They went to

another guy with stringy blond hair was driving a dark blue
(dirty) old Plymouth. He was going to take the boys to Sacramento
with him. While the boys were gone they smoked a lot of cigarettes
and did not eat and hardly sleep. Jacob said he was upset
because his father and I separated, me for moving and his
father being so verbally abusive. Also his uncle because of
friction between him and his father.
