    Dear Kingwilly

    I want to be a teacher in Indonesia because you get a driver and a maid.
    My written and spoken English is average. Am I overqualified? If so I can txt talk whenever the need arises.

    Love, SBF

    I got quite a few, from farangs and Asians who want to stay in Thailand.
    And some pretty smart ones actually.
    I mean education/job smart, not really for the reason they want to stay in Thailand...

    Your fucking Australian.....what on earth do you lot know about football????

    He played professional football for Vitesse Arnhem, and his missus is dutch. Knowing how Dutch people usually perform in English, he's classic proof that footballers are not so bright.

    This is an actual job application that a 75-year-old pensioner
    submitted to B&Q in Tunbridge Wells, UK.

    Apparently, they hired him on the spot.


    NAME:

    Kenneth Way (Grumpy Bastard)

    SEX:
    Not lately, but I am looking for the right woman (or at least one who will cooperate)

    DESIRED POSITION:
    Company's Chief Executive or Managing Director. But seriously, whatever's available. If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn't be applying in the first place - would I?

    DESIRED SALARY:
    150,000 a year plus share options and a Tony Blair style redundancy package. If that's not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.

    EDUCATION:
    Yes.

    LAST POSITION HELD:
    Target for middle management hostility.

    PREVIOUS SALARY:
    A lot less than I'm worth.

    MOST NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT:
    My incredible collection of stolen pens and post-it notes.

    REASON FOR LEAVING:
    It was a cr*p job.

    HOURS AVAILABLE TO WORK:
    Any.

    PREFERRED HOURS:
    1:30-3:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

    DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SKILLS?:
    Yes, but they're better suited to a more intimate environment.

    MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER?:
    If I had one, would I be here?

    DO YOU HAVE ANY PHYSICAL CONDITIONS THAT WOULD PROHIBIT YOU FROM LIFTING UP TO 50 lbs.?:
    Of what?

    DO YOU HAVE A CAR?:
    I think the more appropriate question here would be "Do you have a car that runs?"

    HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY SPECIAL AWARDS OR RECOGNITION?:
    I may already be a winner of the Reader's Digest Timeshare Free Holiday Offer, so they tell me.

    DO YOU SMOKE?:
    On the job - no! On my breaks - yes!

    WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS?:
    Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy Swedish supermodel with big t*ts and who thinks I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I'd like to be doing that now.

    NEAREST RELATIVE?:
    7 miles

    DO YOU CERTIFY THAT THE ABOVE IS TRUE AND COMPLETE TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE?:
    Oh yes, absolutely.
