My new hobby.

Tired of the ludicrous job postings on the net, I've started rewriting postings, where I correct spelling and grammar and generally edit the ad before returning it to the poster with my compliments and my express desire to not apply for the position.

To mix it up, today I began heckling the more egregious examples of delusion.

Take for example, the personal/business assistant position, which entails working "in an intense, fast-paced environment where there is no down time," for which they were offering $12 per hour. I sent them an email asking whether the posting was a joke.

How much does that pay?

Oh, I don't need to worry about money any more; I have an anonymous benefactor! In fact, I expect another twelve dollars any day now!
