If you're a regular reader of The Idea of Progress, then you may already be familiar with those batshit crazy "missed connections" ads from Craigslist. Idea's Best of Craigslist series has featured touching stories of homeless romance, starcrossed addicts, and subway stalkers.
So it goes without saying that I should stop looking for a job on Craigslist. But these are desperate times, and I am slowly becoming acquainted with desperate measures.
Excerpt of job posting on craigslist:
TOUGH BOSS LOOKING FOR MINIONS
Tough boss needs admin support in busy office. $42K and perks galore for the right candidate. Must handle stress with grace. You should be proficient with all basic computer programs required for administrative functions. If you have to ask what these are, do not apply!
It takes a special kind of person to use the word minion in a want ad. I guess you have to have a sense of humour about it, because it's true. Anyways, you sound like a bitch, so good luck with that sweetheart.
