Unemployment World

Had to lay-off our dog walker yesterday.

You know the recession is cutting deep when it effects a 10 year-old's dog walking business.

A solicitor stopped by trying to sell a landscape service for our yard. My reply, "Look, my husband just lost his job. The likelihood I'm gonna pay you to dump chemicals on my yard is absolutely zero. Have a nice day." He turned around and left faster than any solicitor ever!

Yesterday to make each other laugh, John and I started making a list of all the questions NOT to ask in a job interview. Had us cracking up pretty good, at least for a little while.

Here's a few we came up with. . .

1. Do you monitor internet activity at this company?

2. That girl who's picture is on your desk . . . she's 18 right?

3. Um, like, after that first drug test, do you do anymore after that?

4. Can I have off the day after St. Patrick's Day? Just wanna put that request in now.

Make me laugh . . . send me your own ideas for questions not to ask in a job interview.

Have a great weekend!

"So, how often do you guys clean your bathrooms? 'Cause I can get a little messy in there....Woooaahhh!"

"What's this office's policy on sexual harassment? Because that could be a problem."

Can I take any of that vacation time before I do any actual work?

Do you keep magazines in the bathroom?

How long until my first raise?

Will you have cake on my birthday?

This could be fun.
