As the months went by he kept changing his targeted future employer. No problem, I thought, he's just zeroing in on the right one. Each time we met he would expound at great length about his objectives, but I noticed that he never took any definite action towards achieving them. Eventually I realized that he was just full of hot air. It's been three years now and he has yet to even apply anywhere. And THEN I found out from another coworker that this guy has had run-ins with the law that preclude him from ever getting the job he wants, and he knows it!
Oh I HATE people like this. Or well, with this general trait. They say they want to do this and that and they're going to do whatever, but never really try to achieve anything. Of course it seems like they're always the ones with the most excuses.
