Whoever told you you had a fat one, Lachance?



So D is happy to report that today, SEPTEMBER SIXTH...Albertsons has their Christmas shit out. Yes, truly. I know, it was that first snow on the ground we had the other day, it's like January is just around the corner.

So I was filling out this online application (not that I don't LOVE MY JOB), but I ran across this question. You have to pick the one best suited to you. I ask you: really?

1. I have provided general information to managers and staff via e-mail; and/or I have used Internet to retrieve information, news releases, updates and related information; and/or I have used a database to track information.

2. I have prepared a memo using WordPerfect; and/or I have prepared requests for purchase; and/or I have edited correspondence on the computer.

3. I have create tables on WordPerfect; and/or I have used Microsoft access to create a database; and/or I have created a desk guide using a variety of WordPerfect functions.


I mean, I HAVE, but does anyone really still have this program? I mean, on something other than their Commodore 64? What, are they trying to weed out the fifteen year olds?

Skyler'sD: In my resume it reads, "I write in whatever y'all need a bitch to learn, thatz how I roll, yo!"

Vel: haha! Yup, never thought I'd see that come up again!

Tri: Normally I would but if they still have WP running around they might actually try to test my BASIC skills...
