We’ve all gotten incredibly frustrated with the job search at some point in our lives. So frustrated that we start entertaining revenge fantasies – like the guy who didn’t hire you gets fired, while, in the meantime you land a terrific job in a management position, so he finds himself on the other side of the desk with you in the power position and you get to say “I’m so sorry but you’re not the right fit. Good luck in your search, by which I mean I’M NOT REALLY SORRY AND I HOPE YOU NEVER FIND A JOB, JERK!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!”
That is, of course, complex and unlikely to actually happen.
In real life, you could just mail the company cat poop. I’m just kidding. DO NOT ACTUALLY DO THAT.
This guy did, though.
A St. Louis man was so mad when companies didn’t hire him that he wrapped up some cat poop and sent it to them by mail.
The St. Louis Dispatch reports that 58-year-old Jevons Brown has been sentenced to two years’ probation after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of “mailing injurious articles.”
A U.S. Postal Inspection Service spokesman said that investigators tracked 20 such packages to Brown.
Brown, a veteran, was frustrated by his lack of employment opportunities. He apologized in court, saying “I’m sorry. This will never happen again.”
While this is obviously a really terrible idea, it’s hard not to sympathize with him.
