Idiots to the left of me, morons to the right

I left work early today as my (supposed) sinus infection was kicking my ass. Since I had time to kill before my dr appointment, I went to my comic store to hang out.

The guys there are generally fun to hang with; today, however, the 21 year old kid who worked there earlier in the year was also there.

Elath, were we ever that stupid? Not only did he not comprehend how to deal with the bank, that was charging him $35 A DAY in overdraft fees, but he seems to be genuinely clueless about life. I pointed out to him that if he was that much in debt, maybe he should try working somewhere other than the movie theaters. After being told that he was putting out resumes, I demanded to see his (as he had his laptop with him).

His resume was 2 pages long, had tons of white space, used a silly email address, had lots of job specific jargon that made no sense, and too many high school activities that no one would care about in the "real" world. When I asked him what his cover letter looked like? He asked me what one was.

...

I cheerfully ripped his resume apart, with the other guys in the store nodding their heads in agreement, and then told him to go to the local government job locater agency and take some classes. And I stupidly told him that if he revised his resume and wrote a sample cover letter, I would help him with it.

Hell, I might as well have fun ripping people's resumes apart in front of them. The mocking we do at work isn't very fulfilling, as those people aren't in front of me to make them cry.
