SBinRR: scottydoesntknow: Maybe she should've looked at this handy chart before choosing that location:

 [lovelivegrow.com image 610x629]

My only problem with that chart is the forearms marked as a job-free zone.  I know two people in public jobs making pretty good money that are sleeved out.  Of course, they wear long sleeves to work at all times, so there's that.


Yea, that's the only one I don't agree with either. I've seen quite a few guys with full arm sleeves who are making great money, but they wear long-sleeves all day. Once it starts creeping on the hands though, you run into trouble.

PainInTheASP: vudukungfu: Yeah-um, Mr.  Hameed? Look. We're an equal opportunity employer here but you gotta remember, Charles Manson is still alive, and you appear to have some sort of homage to helter skelter thing going on there and quite frankly, the ladies that come into the clinic for prenatal care, well, they might not sleep too well at night, once they subconsciously put one and one together. . .
Good luck, though.

They could hire the guy and then keep him around to help with inducing labor.


If he's in the U.S., you could use him to run off the Operation Rescue people.

Jument: The tat between his eyes screams "I AM AN IDIOT! UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU HIRE ME!"

The rest of them just scream "I'M TOO STUPID TO SHOP SHAVING MY HEAD!"

That weird beard look isn't doing him any favors either. Or his personality, I would guess.


I could get past the stupid tat with a little scar makeup.  I can even get past the shaved head, but that friggin beard is soooooo......wrong/gross/disturbing?

The neckbeard is typical Pakistani-extraction Muslim (as is the name).  Which he counteracts with a Buddhist tattoo and a Taoist tattoo.  For all we know, he has Jesus and L. Ron Hubbard on his calves.

scottydoesntknow: Zarquon's Flat Tire: My mom once hired a guy for a mechanic position.  He wore a hat during the interview.  First day of work he showed up with 'fark You' tattooed on his forehead.

She had to fire him, AT&T policy.  She said he seemed like a nice guy though.

Two questions:

1) Why would she not ask him to remove his hat? I've never known a single interviewer who would take someone wearing a hat during an interview seriously.

2) Why would he take his hat off? He obviously knew it was offensive (which is why he wore the hat during the interview), so why think that day 1 on the job is a good place to start showing it off?


1)  No idea.  My early days when getting jobs as a 15 year she always stressed the importance of dressing nicely for an interview.  And even after I got the job she tried to impress on me that you dress for the job you want, not the job you have.  Maybe it was a fedora or bowler with dress slacks and button down shirt, I just don't know.

2)  Again I don't know.  Back around 2000 could you be fired after 15 minutes of working and then collect a year of unemployment?  This is part of why I remember this story, because Why did he think it would be ok once he working?
 
2013-05-17 04:58:00 PM  
If he really wants a job as bad as he says he does, he'd lose the beard, let his hair grow out and somehow cover up that "Buddhist" tat on his forehead. That and put on some pounds.

2013-05-17 04:59:06 PM  
But he believes potential bosses should be more open-minded about his inkings.

Yes, everyone else should change their standards because this man made poor life decisions.

Don't any of you people have souls?  Have you no class or sympathy for the mentally retarded?

But yeah, that neck-beard has got to go.  Though given the rest of his skin condition and early aging, maybe it's best we don't see what's underneath.

Can he not get a job bartending in a dive?

Sorry, but I'm calling BS on this, speaking from experience. My first job after school was a graphic designer for a telephone directory publisher. The position was open because the guy I was replacing was transferring to a bigger (read: more important) office. He had a tribal dragon on the side of his bald head. Everyone loved him, and the majority of the managers/sales staff in that company were somewhat-to-very conservative.

Personality and hard work can overcome quite a bit. I'm betting this guy is lacking in both areas.

HOLY FARK!!! That dude is 40 years old?!? Oh my God what a rough life that guy has had, huh?

He can still be a roofer. That's the hardest and crappiest work out there. Any roofing crew would hire him if he's even halfway decent at pounding nails.

For what it's worth (and I'm not trying to be mean), I think this guy probably has some brain damage.

Bonkthat_Again: I have gotten crap for not having a tattoo. I was at a friend's bachelor party and his brother asked, "What do you have against tattoos?" My jaw dropped. Wha? "Uh, nothing." To which he responds, "Then why don't you have any?

I basically told him I don't have a specific symbol or picture that can define me, as i feel i'm constantly evolving. I neglected to mention that I'd probably have a boil or cyst ruin it for me at some point (skin problems).

But what I realized then, was that tatooing has jumped the shark. I used to believe everyone who had a tattoo had some deep belief about themselves and wanted to express it in ink.

Now, i tend to see more tattoos on shallow people, where that symbol of expression has become a symbol of conformity.

If you're going to tattoo something about yourself, especially something on your forehead, make sure it doesn't disqualify you from every job except a night Janitor at a Buddhist temple.


So much this.
I have been in that same place. Because I do not have any tattoos, "some" dumb shiates automatically assume that I have something against them.
I answer honestly..."I like to have the option to change my mind on things". I have an earring, but I cannot always take that out.
Same goes for my wife. She does not want to be stuck with some mark on her, that down the road she may not want.
The comment I truly hate is "well you are kind of an unique independent free thinker, I naturally thought you would have tattoos"
What....so having a tattoo makes me a unique individual? WTF?
This whole tattoo thing reminds me of the Dr. Seuss story "The Sneetches"

I just reply saying that I don't have any modification that I wasn't born with and am going to keep it that way.  Usually it is a bit more lewd like "I plan to die with as many holes as I started with"

I don't have a problem with people modifying their bodies.  But that doesn't change my opinion that I think it looks completely retarded.
