Brought my PhD and MA diplomas to HR so that they could look at them today
Had to cart them all the way from Canada
Them: Oh, these are big
Me: Yeah, Canadian diplomas aren't usually used for anything. Usually institutions just ask the university to mail them a Confirmation of Graduation.
Them: And they're not dated
Me: Yes they are; the dates are just written in pretentious Latin
Upside: I got the HR person to tell me flat-out that I'm getting paid at the end of the month, so there's that
@bgcarlisle weird they didn't expect that, my US-issued MA is dated in Latin
@srol It might be because the date is a part of the big wall of pretentious Latin text
@bgcarlisle id check mine but I actually haven't a clue where it is 😬
@srol Uh oh
Might be tricky to get a job in Germany!!
@bgcarlisle oh gosh, that means now they officially updating your records to include your titles, doesn't it?
