Is that what cost me the job?

Maybe I'm missing something...22 days on a felony charge? Not that I'm agreeing that he needs more jail than that for something like this.

"Good time"?  I think the idiot writer meant "good behavior", but then maybe that particular jail has parties every day.

I suppose that all depends on what kind of job you're applying for.

Al Qaeda? Hiring bonus.

I am sick of all those articles from HR experts suggesting to jobless people that they add some spice to their resumes to make them stand out.  I bet this guy saw the chocolate bar resume and thought he'd give the novel approach a go
 
2013-03-21 10:38:51 AM  
Was that wrong? Should I not have done that?
 
2013-03-21 10:43:21 AM  
ebi... i... if you don't give me this job, I .... I will bomb the place...

Of course not, you save that for the resumé.

/vague threats on the back of your cover letter are also acceptable

Meth. Is there anything it can't do!?!
 
2013-03-21 10:44:36 AM  
Even if you're applying to be a bomb maker?

Yeah, seems like the HR people are the main barrier between us and meaningful employment. Then you read something like the Cracked article that tells you all the attempts you have tried that may not get answered because of situations outside your realm of control or something you didn't expect. (e.g. an HR blacklist, your resume not having enough HR buzz words in it to keep away from the "discard" function of the software program those departments use to weed out resumes, the company rejecting you without merit because you applied "too many times" to that or other companies, and other horrid stuff)

He wanted to blow them away with his application!

/eh, got nothing
 
2013-03-21 10:56:35 AM  
I always write mine on the front.
 
2013-03-21 11:04:12 AM  
Articles that are shorter than the copyright tag at the bottom are always the most informative. Why is there no description of said bomb threat?
 
2013-03-21 11:04:38 AM  
"I want to work for your fine establishment because I think it's the bomb.... yo."

OMFG!11!!1!!1  BOMB THREAT!!!!

You can't use your imagination?

Blast you...beat me to it.

Listed on the application were these bullet points about his previous employment:

First job: "I was employee of the month for four months until the building mysteriously exploded."
Second job: I was very reliable. Would still be there but one day, when I went to work, the building was gone.
Third job: My immediate supervisor praised my work ethic. He would have given me a glowing reference but he splattered himself all over his office.

Give Harry job! Have hard time to get work in post-9/11 world.

Under "qualifications" he wrote, "I am frugal with office supplies."

Protip:  when they call you as a reference, just ask them if they caught the bomb threat on the other side of the application.    If they look, and it's not there, just say to expect the same sloppiness and lack of attention to detail on the job.

Meth is a hell of a drug.
 
2013-03-21 11:38:12 AM  
and don't write mutilation threats to your supervisor either.

"I am not a spoon, I am a knife, and I will stab out your eye."

\true cool story sis
\\I was not the direct supervisor or report in this situation but I have the note secreted away in case somebody gets stabbed at a later date
 
2013-03-21 11:38:31 AM  
Well, duh!

It says right on the form:   Use a separate sheet of paper if necessary.

I hate applicants and employees who can not follow simple, explicit instructions.
 
2013-03-21 11:42:46 AM  
I'm getting a kick out of this, because when subby's mom submitted a job application, I dropped a bomb and wiped with it.
 
2013-03-21 11:44:12 AM  
Why do they have bombs in their workplace that the applicant can threaten, and exactly how threatened did these bombs feel?
Without this information I don't feel like I can pick sides in this case.
 
2013-03-21 12:05:53 PM  
Was it "Hire me OR I'll kill you", or "Hire me AND I'll kill you"?  It makes a difference...
 
2013-03-21 05:29:38 PM  
Uh, yeah hi, I'd uh, like to apply for a job DOWN WITH GOVERNMENT!

Fill out my personal information on this form? I'M THE EVIL MIDNIGHT BOMBER, WHAT BOMBS AT MIDNIGHT!
 
2013-03-21 07:25:43 PM  
Hey, did I ever tell you guys about the new job I got?  All I had to do was write a bomb threat on the back of the only other application.
