They're looking to work, and maybe one day be promoted to manager so they can LEAD, not READ!

i thought we banned stuff from china recently because of its high lead content...?
My jaw would not leave the floor. Unbelievable. RSers the whole lot.

it never surprises me to be honest.

Maybe I'm naive but I find the number of girls under 18 looking for work 'to support their baby' astonishing.
Is being a single teenage mom considered a job requirement at these places? (unlike, say, literacy)
It just seems such a disproportionately large number....
But yes, your future is not in any doubt at all America.
(just remember, certainty can be applied equally to desirable and undesirable outcomes)
And to think, I though I worked with idiots now.... it could be so much worse.

I'm actually surprised at how intelligent some of those people seem. For Americans. :P
Hi, I'm NightStrike, and I'm looking for a job, too. I have skills in fighting unarmed, so a security role would be best. I'm an expert marksman in old crossbow technology, so I would be able to handle being an outdoor security guard if necessary. I'm still in school, but my high school offers day care for students that need to work, so my kids will be ok. Do you have anything for me?

lol, this whole thread was gold.
Funniest. Most pathetic. Thing. Ever.
Some people need to be "Bast-inized".

Iﾔm a student.Iﾒm looking for seasonal job.How and where fill an applikation-blank?

Hey, you can't blame these kids ! Most of them are 16-20 and going to college ! That makes them the cream of the crop. Just because they have a couple of kids or whatever other advanced external interests they have doesn't make them bad.
If they're in college, they've obviously passed through the school system. It looks like the system is to blame here. Well, okay, and the kids.
p.s. My name is Billy Manolo and I've been sober for over 3 weeks now. Wait, am I in the right room ?
LaBertha... That's a new name
Lol look at #57.

82. "I need you to send me a applikayshun so I can get off welfare. I got a kid and we need money. Do you drug test?"
Should I feel bad for laughing?

Don't worry, now that we have a few years of "Leave No Child Behind" under the astute guidance of George W. Bush (a true genius!), I am sure that such postings are a thing of the past!

Sutekh: this might make me feel a lot worse if this is the 85%.... ;)
January 23 2008 4:05 PM EST
Hey now, that story was largely autobiographical, so I would hope I am WAY better than those posters! If the 85% consists of all people like that, then we are well and truly screwed -- and I would also have to change my story title to "The 99% Man". *smile*
January 23 2008 4:07 PM EST
Hey, on the other hand, at least they were all looking for work rather than expecting welfare !
#67 nailed it! lol. (Although he had some abusive words, i cant quote it).
"Hellow my name is Tomieka Davis im 16 years old im a junior at dreher

I couldn't help but laugh at that... I thought to myself, "Yea she's proven that with the child on board at 16 (15?)."
i like number 79, that guy has a point, but he is too late, many of them already did :P

The Darwin awards just don't have enough medals for all these people... I mean, really! If you even bothered READING anything on there, you wouldn't have posted anything about wanting a job... gah, people are idiots.
We need more natural selection...

I'm also surprised at the teenage parents.
This is a bit of Russell Peters doing his comedy skit. The link just reminded me of it.
He does swear, but it makes his skit even more funny. It is more funny if you can relate :D
lol, I'm gonna comment on the thread saying i got a call back, =)
Weird though, it prenamed me with the name Calynne, =P I'm gonna change it though, don't worry. I just wonder why it did that, we're not on the same IP, are we? lol.
