Well, If You Insist

This story takes place before online job applications have become omnipresent; the clothes shop where I work still takes résumés in person. A young lady comes inside and comes up to the counter.

Me: “Welcome to [Clothes Shop]. Can I help you with anything?”

Lady: “I need you to refuse to give me a job.”

I was VERY confused until she explained. She had landed her dream job at a nearby bookstore, but her mother was adamant that she apply for something “more dignified than serving nerds all day”.

I have never been so happy to tell someone we weren’t hiring.
