Son is trying to get a job as a bag boy at Albertson's...$6 an hour. If you want to be amused, take the 120 question personality test that is part of their on-line application. Son was told to redo his app because he failed the first time-he was a "red yellow" and needs to be "green green." We just couldn't figure out the "right" answer to so many of the questions....about 25% were of the "have you stopped beating your wife" variety. Our favorite one was:
It is maddening when the court lets guilty criminals go free.
The question assumes that the courts DO let guilty criminals go free. If you agree, you're a hot head with no respect for the criminal justice system. If you disagree, it's fine with you if guilty criminals go free.
There were so many questions almost as bad: "I criticize people when they need it." That assumes folks sometimes need criticism (not correction.) So, if you agree, you criticize people. If you disagree, you let bad actions slide.
Similar question: "I tell people off when they need it." So, you're either a person who TELLS PEOPLE OFF (I didn't know anyone even still used that phrase), or you're such a wimp that you let people abuse you.
If he doesn't get a green green this time, I guess Son with the 2120 SAT won't be deemed well suited to be a bag boy.
