signs these days state characteristics employers are seeking in new hire, like "hard working." BAHA! nothing i detest more than redundancy, &yet, with an entitled generation brainwashed into thinking they are worth $15/hr, it serves employer best to set expectations right away. you're not better than fetchin' someone's covfefe for a year.
just the other day, lady walks into office looking to make some easy dough off referral program we offer. (i should mention, this town has a serious drug problem &weekly junkies come in looking for freebies: A.C., bathroom, coffee /water machine). this 1 was creative: she walks in w/sunglasses on (1st clue) &skims brochures 4 opportunities.
welcome.. how can i help?
hold on, /she doesn't look up, gives her pointer finger &eventually meanders over. suggests, under her breath (2nd clue) that I give her a referral code, that she'd give me a cut of her winnings. (i find it in my heart not to laugh in her face, but really, who does this? who thinks things are free? but, druggies have a will &they will find a way).
um, this is a professional environment. i don't need $20.
oh, so you'll do it for free?
no. here in America, we help ourselves.
stunned, the lady still in sunglasses hurls some expletives on her way out.
have a nice day! my coworker says (to everybody leaving).
PISSED, she says, "no i won't!"
later, coworkers see her in the park, asking STRANGERS to partake in the program 4her. no shame. imagine if she worked this hard for a j-o-b. but townies will keep giving these people dollars &loose change &have them continue living day-to-day when they really need dignity, humble pie &a job that builds their character. at least think about it, lady.
help wanted /i don't think she wants it, but we can pray that God keeps a knockin'.
