I am so nearly finished writing my new book I’ve no time to blog, I’ve just got to get on with it. In the mean time, I thought I’d share this with you.
It’s a genuine job application, sent to us a couple of years ago. I did wonder if it was a wind up but it came with a perfectly respectable CV…
hi kathy i am looking for a job working out doors well some times out doors any way so i thought that this job was relevent to me. also it is a farm that you have so i would love to work there because i really love animals (cute ones only). but if you gave me just the easy jobs and let me pet all of the baby cows and sheep i would be very good at that because i have 2 hamsters and they love me peting them also when you said we will be out in all weather does that mean if it was raining because i think i would be best in the barn stroking the cows or bottle feeding the lambs but the only down fall i have is that i am scared of pigs so if you had pigs could you please let me know so that i could cancel my plans to come and work on your farm thanks ****** x p.s could i bring popet and pickle my 2 hamsters because i would miss them to much.
Well you made me smile but I don’t think you’re cut out for farm work,kathy
And received this:
ok thank you so much hope you find the right person.
p.s if you ever do need a person to feed the lamb and chicks and baby moo’s you no were i am. *****, popet and pickle xxx
I sometimes wonder if we should have given her a job.
Someone who signs a job application with kisses and wants to take their hamsters to work? Well, that’s got to make you smile a bit everyday hasn’t it?
