A company posts a job opening that says, “We challenge you to separate yourself from the pack – make it impossible for us not to consider you for this position!” They’re probably figuring people will extol their industry virtues and share their humanitarian interests.
Do you suppose they knew that I would write in to say that most people figure my brain fell out while I stayed home with my kids, but it’s not true? That only half my brain has atrophied, but the other half is stronger than ever? That my salary requirements are “enough to attain the lifestyle to which I’d like to become accustomed?” To point out all of the typos I found on their website? I felt a little bit badly about that, so then I offered to bake them cookies.
Yes, really. How is it possible that I am allowed to go about my life without constant supervision?
Cool Whip, anyone?
