You're Hired!

Part of my job includes reviewing job applications and yesterday I came across a real gem.

Have you ever been discharged from employment or asked to resign?
Yes. I told my boss to get f#%&*ed.

The applicant also listed three references as people she met while on vacation.

I wish I were making this up. It's not like I work at Dumb Mart or something either. I work for a college campus. Academia. Educated people.

On the other hand, I bet she's tons of fun on a vacation!

I love stories like this one.

I recently found out that one of the physicians that works at the jails put me down as a reference. Specifically, one who can speak to his clinical competence. Dude, I just do the jail schedule. I've never even seen this guy in real life. We only talk on the phone and exchange emails.

I'm glad you could get a chuckle out of my job application. :-)

Okay, that wasn't really me. My resume is totally boring.

What? is that bad? At least she didn't list as references her cell mates. so that's a plus!
