I filled out everything the application asked for. At the bottom it had a box and above it read: Please add any additional info that you think we should know about.
I’m honest and will not lie for anyone.
I walked up to the counter and handed it in. An older gentleman looked it over quickly and turned it over. He looked up at me. “mmmm.. I see you don’t like to tell a lie?”
“Yes.” I said, nodding my head gently up and down.
“mmmmm.. well, sometimes we need to do what’s best for the company no matter what.”
“Well, thank-you for your honesty. Sorry, I wasted your time.”
I nodded and turn around and walked out the door.
We never spoke again.
