I'm pissed right now.
So, previously, before today, I had "ModestJustice is going to be a working girl!" on the right hand side and it was because I had applied for this Summer Youth Work Program thingy on March.
Up until a few days ago, they had not called me back, so I felt pretty dismal and all that hopeless stuff.
Then on the way home from school wednesday (it ended yesterday with my brother graduating... woo!)they called and scheduled a job testing for this afternoon.
Sweet! Imma get the job, thought I.
I dressed up all nice and what not (dress pants anyone?)and my father drove me there.
Being the perfect job-searcher that I am, I was 15 minutes early.
When it was 12 o'clock, the other hopefuls and I shuffled into a small room and began taking a test on basic reading and math.
Jeez, one of the questions was 'This sign says Do Not Enter what does it tell you to do?'
I was sure I'd pass this test and was one of the first ones done. -cough-
So the tester guy told us to stop and after he took the tests for correction, they started calling students out one by one.
I was thinking to myself, "Crap! They called those two asian guys,(I'm not trying to be racist)they did look/are pretty smart, I hope I get the job, I hope I get the job!"
Then they called my name (!)
I jumped out of my seat and walked across the room, thinking "Hell yeah suckers! I just got the job"
My dad was out in the lobby waiting for me and I was escorted into a hallway to talk with one of the directors:
"Congratulations! You had one of the highest scores!"
"Hell yes I did, I kicked those kids' butts." (Okay I really didn't say that, but you bet I was thinking it)
"But, unfortunately, we are only accepting candidates with an average proficiency level of 7th grade or lower."
"Hey! Look at the brightside, you're very good academically but not what were searching for, thank you!"
...So basically, I scored too well?
I mean if you wanted me to flunk, you could've just asked!
The worst part was, this is a job for working in libraries, City Hall, Community Pools, e.t.c. If the kids who make this job can't even read a 'Do Not Enter' sign, I fear for the public.
My father, however, laughed at the absurdity of the time wasted when they could've just written on the application: "Do not apply if smart" And they should have, would've saved me the anger -shakes fist-
And all this time, isn't society encouraging us to get an education to get a job?
