    If I don't get a gun, then I'm not applying.

    Not to mention that if they gave me a gun, I sure as hell would be more successful in getting former students to come back and resume their studies.

    You've got to be fucking kidding me. They want someone with a degree and publishing experience to be a rent-a-cop as part of their job. Amazing.

    You can borrow my gun. I love this line: "Practically the entire shift you will be able to focus on writing copy – you’ll just happen to be wearing a uniform."

    This could backfire. What if the copywriter discovers their true passion lies in security guard work?

    You should see their other ad. It's for a new Dean of Students/janitor. The good news is that they'll supply the mop.

    It might still be OK if you get to carry a nightstick.

    And I think this is real.

    That could be one of the most bizarre job descriptions I've ever read.

    Don't try to pretend you're not applying.
  12. So what if someone breaks in, ties me up and shoves me in a closet while he steals all the computer equipment ... do I get overtime?
