A girl came in my store the other day and asked for a job application...here is how the conversation went:
GIRL THAT JUST DOESN'T GET IT: "Hi...could I have a job application"
ME: "Hi...I'm not looking to hire anyone right now...thank you though"
GIRL THAT JUST DOESN'T GET IT: "I just want to fill out an application"
ME: "I'm not looking to hire anyone...thank you"
GIRL THAT JUST DOESN'T GET IT: "But could you just put my application on file?"
ME: "I'm just a small operation I don't really keep applications on file and don't plan on hiring anyone for the next 5 years or so"
GIRL THAT JUST DOESN'T GET IT: "Could I fill one out anyhow just in case you change your mind?"
ME: "The only way we'll be hiring anyone is if I die of cancer"
GIRL THAT JUST DOESN'T GET IT: "Could I leave my name and number just in case?"
Girl fills out name and phone number, thanks me and then leaves. I carefully place name and phone number in my application file.
So if I should die of cancer make sure you go to the town landfill and sift through all the papers and get her number and hire her. She's a go-getter.
