SPUG: Avoid this recruiter?

I was able to contact this guy yesterday. He told me the location of the
jobs were in Seattle and BALLARD, not BELLINGHAM.
Sheesh. Perl/Web development jobs (or indeed any sort of computing jobs)
are apparently non-existent in Skagit or Whatcom Counties, so this lead
turned out to be a really big disappointment.
But giving out disappointment would appear to be this guy's main
pleasure...I really hate 'technical recruiters'...most of them don't have a
fraction of our knowledge and probably use O'Reilly books to prop up their
tables or boost up their flowerpots...
Anyways, just wanted to let you lot know that he gave me a different job
Be seeing you...

"Where am I?"
"Well, you can't get there from here."
"But I'm looking for the same old place!"
"Oh, you must mean the old Same place. It's right out back."
