It seems like a valid choice to me.  I'm sure it means (wage) slave.

Seriously, Georgia? Do you want me to go back down there and straighten this out?

Have at it.

Let's think about this for a second:

Slavery ended in 1865.
The list of occupations has been in use since 2000.
The drop-down menu had to be coded by someone.
And they're claiming that it's an accident, because it came straight off the list.

I call bullshiat.

It is time to update the master record.

On the other hand, DeKalb County just opened a restaurant that specializes in corn dogs.

So there's that.

I'm guessing this is one of those situations where a bored IT person put it in to see if anyone would catch it, and intended to remove it before it went live, but didn't have the chance.

/WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE  stuff, yo

"That is not an occupation, slave is not an occupation," said DeKalb resident, Cheryl Glass.

Says you!
I'm a slave to the rhythm

Maybe they accidentally added an e and just wanted to know if Youre a Slav?
 
2013-11-26 03:45:37 PM
When you come down to Dekalb Country Georgia, you best read the signs and respect the law and order or else you'll be employed as a slave.
 
2013-11-26 03:46:00 PM
Yeah totally unacceptable.
 
2013-11-26 03:46:25 PM
Definitely clerical racism at it's worst.
 
2013-11-26 03:48:53 PM
In Georgia, "slave" just means you lost the fiddle contest to Satan.

Nah

We'd put in things like:
Wizard
Grand Poobah
Chief Cook and Bottlewasher

Y'all don't know much about DeKalb County, do you? It changed a LONG time ago; it's one of the country's biggest and richest buppie enclaves (blacks are the largest ethnic group at 53 percent, with a HUGE increase between 2000 and 2010 when they built all those bougie subdivisions in South DeKalb). This is just some tech wienie being a smartass.

It's worked out, though, that place has been packed since it opened. They need to quit spending so much time on Facebook and update their website.
 
2013-11-26 03:53:09 PM
Someone, somewhere typed in "slave"

That person should be punched in the face.
 
2013-11-26 03:53:35 PM
How's that input stringer working out for you?

I've only been to the truck, but that italian sausage corn dog is the bomb.

The occupation Master is noticeably absent from the list.  It's a start.
 
2013-11-26 04:00:53 PM
Of course it's an accident.  Slaves can't sit on juries.
 
2013-11-26 04:01:05 PM
Well, slavery still exists, here and elsewhere. It's unlikely that an illegal slave would be on any public registry for jury duty, or whatever. Just because it's illegal, doesn't make it an invalid data value.
 
2013-11-26 04:02:04 PM
Anonymous source in the city Chamber of Commerce says it's the Sex Slave business that puts the place on the map, your choice of black or white dominatrices.

And they stopped taking the computer literate guys off the chain gang to do programming recently.
 
2013-11-26 04:05:56 PM
Can go either way.

1. Racist shiathead statement
2. Acerbic commentary on contemporary wage slave/academic indentured servitude

So. Meh.

I don't know about you all, but when I hear slave, I think

I guess if your good at being tied up and taking money, it CAN be an occupation...
 
2013-11-26 04:08:15 PM
To play Devil's Advocate: What if it is still on the books somewhere as a legal definition and must be an available option on such forms? Now that original statue needs revisiting instead of playing shoot the messenger.

The article needs more facts.
 
2013-11-26 04:11:31 PM
Wait... so the list is 62 pages long, and the guy hit S for Sales but ended up with Slave... how badly sorted is that list?
 
2013-11-26 04:20:47 PM
Maybe it refers to a "national debt slave."  Which we all know is not an offensive term because a wise lady who wanted to be our vice president said it was not offensive.
 
2013-11-26 04:35:06 PM
Dekalb county recently had it's county CEO get suspended with a bunch of felony corruption counts, it's 2/3rds of the school board booted because they were incompetent, and several years ago had the outgoing sheriff murder the incoming sheriff.

They really work at making Fulton County seem competent.
 
2013-11-26 04:55:34 PM
Clearly they meant "blave" and as we all know, to blave means to bluff.
 
2013-11-26 04:57:33 PM
Huge mistake - Slavery is a lifestyle, not an occupation.

They don't list "strawboss" either.

I can see why; according to the menu they have posted, everything is $0.00.
