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!
