We Don't Need No Education

Sometimes one has to see the humor in life otherwise the tragedy will kill you. In spending my days searching for jobs I often come across random job search sites. This morning I received an unsolicited email from a forum for those in search of employment with Walmart. After going through some of the posts, the mysteries of the universe or at least what makes our local Walmart tic or their staff seem so dysfunctional was revealed. 

Here are a few of the entries from the hiring pool. I have copied the exact posts (changing the posters' names of course, as if it were to matter)

I have the same exact problem


OK, I fancy myself as a writer but I do not possess the talent nor the imagination to make this up. I would apply to work at Walmart, however, I would have to jump off a cliff in shame if I were denied employment after reading these posts. Perhaps there is potential for me as a greeter after all.
