    I put my resume on computerjobs. Trying again. Can I make it work this time? Can I learn to shut the hell up. Probably not. Here's to the wall! :bang3: :alco:

    Good luck. There is nothing worse than looking for a job. I truly hate job-seeking.

    I also just applied online at Border's books. It was a freaking 37 page online applications. Grueling, for a 8$ job. DOH!

    37 pages, are you serious. Do they need your blood type and mother's mother's maiden name?

    A huge part of it was a multiple choice thing about your moods and how you get along with people mostly. The oddest question was this: "Does it make you angry when when courts let guilty criminals go free". I put "no". To me this was a political litmus test. Of course, it was a lie.

    For shame! Being dishonest in order to make a buck. I'm telling. :p:

    Someone asked me to write in as few words as possible what I think the phrase "money is the root of all evil" means in my opinion, during an interview. I wrote it isn't (I decided I didn't want the job before the question). :D

    They just don't want any ornery, moral, conservatives in their worldly satanic organizations.

    What does that have to do with stocking shelves or running a register? Or do the latte makers do criminal defense work behind the counter? :poop:
    Ah, I know. They want to make sure you are a lib in case you get to make any book purchasing or display decisions.

    PS Good luck with the job search!

    I know. I need to keep my true views under tight wraps. This sucks. Of course, eventually they will try to draw me into a big Bush Bash. "yeah, and he says "nucular", what a failure!" Practice makes perfect.
