This is supposedly an actual job application that a 75-year-old pensioner submitted to Bunning’s Warehouse, Australia’s largest household hardware chain, in Burleigh Heads. They hired him because he was so funny. It’s an old one, but it still tickles…
Kenneth Way (Grumpy Bastard)
Not lately, but 1 am looking for the right woman (or at least one who will cooperate)
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?
$150,000 a year plus share options and a Julia Gillard style redundancy package. If that’s not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.
LAST POSITON HELD:
–Target for middle management hostility.
–A lot less than I’m worth.
MOST NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT:

HOURS AVAILABLE TO WORK:
–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.?:

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 tits and who thinks I’m the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I’d like to be doing that now.
DO YOU CERTIFY THAT THE ABOVE IS TRUE AND COMPLETE TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE?:
–Oh yes. Absolutely.
