Unfortunately, we have no openings at this time. We will keep your resume on file and if anything opens up in the future, we will definitely give you a call.

Although I stated I had a problem with people's erm, avoirdupois, I would not hire you based on the fact that you think cartoons are only for children.

I don't care what you look like. If you have the qualifications for the job, I would hire you.

Yu can even bring along the reptiles. I like reptiles.

For those of you who've mentioned the reptile, she's actually not mine. That photo was taken about three years ago at a friend's house. The snake's name is Chloe and she was donated to my friend's granddaughter's science class a year or so ago.

I doubt my cats would tolerate a snake in the house. But if it weren't for them, I would probably have one.

Say!
I like the lesbians!
I do! I like them, Vibian!
And I would hire them in a boat.
And I would hire them with a goat...

And I will hire them in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
They are so good, so good, you see!

So I will hire them in a box.
And I will hire them with a fox.
And I will hire them in a house.
And I will hire them with a mouse.
And I will hire them here and there.
Say! I will hire them ANYWHERE!

I do so like the lesbians!
Thank you! Thank you, Vibian!

I was just watching Cheers on my lunch break and it was all about the Hungry Heifer restaurant Norm loves. That name cracks me up and I would definitely go there to eat.

Well, I know we are going to lose 3 employees and I'm not 100% sure if we are going to replace them.

I need to ask my boss (I just asked the manager and he isn't sure) and see what he has to say.

Knowing McHawkson's occasionally creative approach to spelling, I would double check that this is indeed the type of job you think it is.

Spelling? I thought my grammar is worst than spelling. My work is automotive distributor of southern CA and a member of Parts Plus. You can check out the website: www.pacificsupplyco.com

Depending on the size of the snake, your cat's concerns may not be an issue.

I'm just glad I didn't have to see it.

I don't like tattoos even on men, but on women ... DOUBLE YUCK.
Based on how laughably unenlightened and juvenile you appear in this post, no, I wouldn't hire you to work in my department.

Have we reached some kind of future where photos replaced resumes?

It's those reasons I don't recommend giving too much of our identies away on the net. People get fired or rejected for these things though I'm glad we can all feel free to post our opinions here whether they are popular or non-pc.

I fully support your right to generalize me the same way I generalize people with tattoos.

Oooh look everyone, another fat thread from Vibianna.


Everyone always says - "no one cares what you look like, if your good at your job then your a good candidate and should be hired". But that simply isnt how it goes in our society

A reasonable manager would never hire an overweight person over a fit person who had the same qualifications, for plain simple reasons like health care costs, exdtra sick leave, productivity, company image, department image, just image in general, morale, motivation, etc. etc.

Just like why would a manager hire a smoker over a non smoker with identical qualifications if he knows that the smoker is probably going outside 2-3 times an hour to smoke while everyone else is still working away.

If you or anyone have intentionally abused your own health, then I HOPE the world discriminates against you so much, and so relentlessly, that you can barely find a job anywhere. That goes for deadbeat welfare losers, drug addicts, smokers, and morbidly obese.

I need to probably tone that down a bit since it amounts to about 75% of the entire population.
