Resumes and such

A friend of mine asked if I thought it was funny that he put, under "Notable Accomplishments" on his resume,
"Survivor of irritable bowel syndrome".

Yes.

I think it's frickin hilar.

But prospective employers might not agree.

Thoughts?

He better not apply for one of those obs where you only get one potty breaka day!

oestrebunny said...

Haha!
At least they'll remember him!

Mr. U,
Well, he's a survivor, so that's ok.

Bunny,
Welcome back! Hey, how do I get an invite to your blog? I can't access it now!

I dig it.

I was planning on adding 3rd Place Winner of the Grilled Cheese Invitational and 1st Place Winner of Boobie Wars on mine.

you have friends?

huh.

Warped Mind of Ron said...

He should put down that he talked a couple of ladies into a threesome as an accomplishment. If a guy is doing the hiring he's so totally getting the job. LOL

Ginormous,
I wish I could compete in the boobie wars. I think maybe I'd have had a chance back in third grade. Now? not so much.

Jeremy,
Um, a couple. But I define "friends" probably more loosely than the average joe. Guy who delivers my laundry? Friend. Crazy French lady who sits with aggessive golden retriever on park bench all day near subway stop asking for change? BFF. So, sure. I've got lots of 'em.

Ron,
That is a smashing idea. You are a funny man.

I worry about what will happen when I don't have my boyish good looks and natural charm to wow prospective employers.

I guess I will just lie on my resume.

"Saved leopards from poachers in Guatemala, summer 2004"...

Bwaaahahaha, it's a conversation starter. I love it!

Prunella Jones said...

That's a pretty good accomplishment. I'd hire him. At least you'd know where to find him if he wasn't at his desk.

Krissyface said...

Scoot,
I think you've got at least another couple years to ride the boyish good looks. But best to have a backup. "Fixed elephant doll for prospective step-daughter". That's a good one.

Cat,
I agree. I'm all about being upfront with prospective employers.

Pru,
But...would you want to ... go find him if he wasn't at his desk? Ew to the ew.

Pronto said...

Cool, I'm a survivor fan....

It's the rest of reality that sux...

Just sayin'

Krissyface said...

Pronto,

I love Survivor! Eye of The Tiger!

Krissyface said...

Me timbers?

Pronto said...

yes, definitely your timbers

It depends on where he's applying, really. A toilet test facility, for example, would be happy to have him.
