There were so many applicants for the post.
I asked them how they could identify the best candidates for the job.
They looked at me and laughed.
Them: "Oh that's easy we just take twenty off the top of the pile and bin the rest. We want the lucky ones"
Me: "Isn't that illegal, or at least morally wrong?"
Them: "Yeah, but who will ever know?"
Add your insights
oooh, I see what you did there. Well done.
Yikes! Well told!
Ah man! I can completely see this happening, unfortunately. So few words to convert so much, Mike. This was a great piece!
Morals, shmorals. That word is fast becoming extinct. Their loss, the best ones were at the bottom of the pile. haha, they lose.
Sounds like a challenge on a challenge.
They will. And seeing as they seem quite pleased with how clever they are, not only do you know but I'm guessing their friends will too, & soon everyone will know how fiendishly clever they are & have little to no respect or regard for them.
It’s very sad if that’s how we are process 🤦🏽♀️😱
