Between Two Ferns

An internet show that is hilarious that you may not have seen...

Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis is a host and has celebrity guests come on and he interviews them. It is laugh out loud funny. Zach makes the actors uncomfortable, or angry, or awkward...and you just need to watch.

Here is one with Ben Stiller

Some Jokes I Just Read

A Jew walks into a Nazi bar, sits down and orders a drink.
The bartender can't believe it and says, "we don't get a lot of you people in here."
To which the Jewish man replies,"well at these prices I'm not surprised."

Guy goes to play golf. All the caddies are taken, but they have new robot caddies. The guy shoots the game of his life. Comes back the next day and asks for a robot caddie. The pro says,"I'm sorry we had to discontinue the robot caddies; the glare was messing up shots." "Why didn't you just paint them black or brown then?", asks the man. The pro says, "We did, but then four didn't show up for work and three held up the pro shop."

Job Searches

Some of you may not know this, but there was a time when you could actually hand in a resume (or fill out an application) to a company, get a call for an interview, do the interview and find out then and there that you got the job or not.

This seems to be the most common process these days: Fill out application online. If it gives you the option to upload a resume it will still make you put that same information in the required fields anyway. Take a 100 question survey they use to weed out people people who are honest or simply don't know the correct answer they are looking for...but mostly to weed out honest people. All of this which takes up to an hour to complete for only one job position.

After that, maybe you'll get a call in a week...or even a month...for an interview. If you do well on the interview, they will call you back for a second interview. If you do well on that one, in some rare cases, you'll have a job, and in others you'll get a call for a third fucking interview. And this is jobs like pushing carts at mother fucking Walmart. Seriously? Are you fucking kidding me? And on top of that, it's only part time.

Same thing goes for so many other low paying part time jobs. Lots of good people don't get jobs. This is all my opinion on the process mind you, from my own thoughts and observations...the lazy bastards that know how to lie and cheat their way get the job. Then the companies end up letting go of people and repeating the process.
