Anyway, when I sent her my resume, she responded with:
very nice. change "oversaw" (not a word, or at least not a good one) to "oversight of" or "provided oversight for", something like that
Uh, ok. I replied with the following definition, copied and pasted from Dictionary.com:
o·ver·see –verb (used with object), -saw, -seen, -see·ing.
1. to direct (work or workers); supervise; manage: He was hired to oversee the construction crews.
2. to see or observe secretly or unintentionally: We happened to oversee the burglar leaving the premises. He was overseen stealing the letters.
3. to survey or watch, as from a higher position.
4. to look over; examine; inspect.
Thinking I was being a smartass with her, she replied,
notice that none of the examples actually use the word "oversaw", because it's not a good word.
I emailed her back.
yes, but also notice how "oversaw" is included as the past-tense form of the verb.
To which she replied:
1. unreasonably obstinate; obstinately unmoving: a stubborn child.
2. fixed or set in purpose or opinion; resolute: a stubborn opponent of foreign aid.
3. obstinately maintained, as a course of action: a stubborn resistance.
4. difficult to manage or suppress: a stubborn horse; a stubborn pain.
5. hard, tough, or stiff, as stone or wood; difficult to shape or work.
So I sent this to her:
1. a stupid person; fool.
She hasn't written me back.
