Amusements: Pretty Darn Funny Walmart Application

Posted by wholeenchilada on November 14, 2007

There’s some excellent humor in a post outlining an actual (supposedly?) Walmart application turned in by a senior citizen: Now This Really Happened!

Here are a few of my favorite lines:

  • DESIRED POSITION:  Company’s President or Vice President.  But seriously, whatever’s available.   If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn’t be applying here in the first place
  • LAST POSITION HELD:  Target for middle management hostility.
  • MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURR EMPLOYER?:   If I had one, would I be here?
  • WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS?: Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy dumb sexy blonde supermodel who thinks I’m the greatest thing since sliced bread.  Actually, I’d like to be doing that now.

Now I have no way of verifying if this was a real application or if the man was actually hired “because he was so funny” but wouldn’t you want to work for a manager who saw and got the humor instead of being labeled an unemployeed, aged nut-job? Of course the manager in me is screaming – oh no you didn’t, but this is my fun blog so I can laugh and applaud the bold move!
