Separate Yourself

Cologne isn't the worst thing I've smelled on an application.

Ah, job applications...

How to explain them...

You've already seen @herpderpedia: I assume?

Think that in biro.

Good god, Bobby has clearly gone completely off the deep end. To think that he would use more than 29 words, the end is nigh.

Well Boby IS the only other named character who doesn't already work there (right?) It would be interesting having him join the main cast.

You're still short by four.

I'm afraid of letting Bobby join the main cast.

He seems just mentally insane enough to burn down the whole store.

Haha, this was an entertaining one.

Bobby seems like the kind of guy who might go on a rampage. Go with the cologne guy.

Bobby would be perfect to annoy customers with. 29 words and then a scream. Easy way to get rid of customers.

I'm not sure what kind of character to expect from all this. One thought I just had was that it might be some new guy, the good-lookin' arrogant type that will get interested in Alix and try to "conquer" her. Which will of course piss off Jack and finally get him to confess his feelings to Alix.

I dunno, maybe it's a bit too daytime-soap-ish?

Ah! Bobby! I had forgotten about him xD
Bobby's insane but it just might work.

I attached a an evil squid to an application once. Wonder what happened to it.

One of my friends is the kitchen manager at a restaurant and frequently has to look over applications. The most recent example of pure idiocy that he's shared with me is that, under "Skills and Qualifications", somebody wrote that they were a rock-paper-scissors champion.

Spoiler alert: he didn't get the job.

I really don't want Bobby to work there. He's entertaining, but he kind of gets on my nerves after a while. Less is more.

I AM excited to see who they do end up hiring. I mean, they ended up hiring Jack, so people skills clearly aren't necessary. I hope they let Podi Puss sit in on the interviews. He's an excellent judge of character.

As someone who gets headaches from strong perfumes and colognes, I totally get Alix's look of disgust about that resume. Also, this reply is now exactly 29 words long.

I read an application that used an email similar to fuckinrad44@email.com. to apply At an office....

I once had the "pleasure" of reading an aplication form written completely in text speak. I then heard Morgan Freemans voice in my head saying; "It was at that moment I realised the world as I knew it was over."

Honestly, I'm not surprised by the idea that someone would spray cologne on an application. They want you to remember them and figure that would work (I'm sure it makes you remember the application at least).

Are we going to get a interview or two out of this, just to see some of the crazy people, that are totally not based on actual experience, that applied?

Now, I'm afraid. Very, very afraid.

I just sneeze from it horribly, but that alone is enough to make someone who would deliberately inflict that on me my enemy.

@herpderpedia:

Wow you just hurt me on a deeply spiritual level. I hope you're happy.

I actually, it's probably for the best I know this exists. I would have found out eventually...

Then again it'd be funny to see a guy dressed up like Boba Fett, scaring away customers with that ever so lovely trademark scream

Haha! Managed to (somehow) miss the release of this one! But I love it! I had hoped Bobby had applied! The other Bobby cartoon with the scream was my favourite!

I worked in retail too, and have seen my fair share of applicants! Some of the horrifying ones are people desperately trying to scrape achievements from the pits of their armpits to impress us! Seriously, someone just finishing school and getting a weekend job, I am not expecting to have done much... but 'came third in the year maths test when I was 14' (like your cologne one, that was also real) just doesn't impress me at all! Seriously... Tip to all... be real! If you don't have many achievements say so...! Not many people actually do have many achievements!

On the other hand, dont do what I did, and foget your biggest achievement, because you are modest and talking about it embarasses you...! That sucks!
