A Great Job Opportunity

I had a great job opportunity yesterday. Was called into Carson Thomas Personnel employment office. The girl sitting across the desk wore skin tight jeans with chains looped around the seams.
"It's a Jr. Admin Asst position with a publication company," she said. "You've heard of it."
"Okay, would I have a chance to do some editorial work?"
"Yes, once you're in, you can move about the company. It's a great salary too."
"Cool," I said. "Who is it for?"
"Flynt Publications."





!!






Choking back laughter. "Uh, I don't think ~ that's the right fit for me."
"Why not?" she asks, leaning on the desk.
"Oh, I don't think I'd be comfortable there."
She glances down at my resume, presses her finger against the name Pasadena First Church of the Nazarene.
"Are you into Church?" she asks.
"Yes."
"Are you like REALLY into Church?" she asks again.
"Yes."
"Just a minute."
Lonyea, or Ms. Jefferson, as she likes to be called, jumps up from behind her desk and goes to speak with her boss. Soon his cigarette torn voice calls me from the other office.

I feel like I've been sent to the principal's office for being a difficult student.

Mr. Thomas begins his ten minute lecture about the respectability of Flynt Management Group. "Only two of their twelve publications are sexually oriented....they don't have naked women walking through the office....it's not like they have posters of naked women hung on the wall..."

I laugh all the way home.

Wow, I am at a loss of words. The only think I can think is that wish I was there to see your face when she said Flynt Publications.
