Found in Vancouver's resume section, here's a lady who's made peace with her career ambitions. She wants to be the woman who holds the stick with the "stop" sign on one side and the "slow" sign on the other side. And she takes it very, very seriously:

Woman who wants to raise her career to the level of holding a stop/slow sign.Traffic Control/Flagger Position Wanted...

I am pretty pissed at this post. This woman is trying to find work... she is not asking for a handout or welfare - but to WORK. The only past experience she has to build upon is as a crossing guard, and she did well at it... so why not be proud of it. We trust our children to these people... to help them get home safely. This post is just cruel... she is a real person, asking for a real job.
You just brought your blog down to a new low with this. Just delete this entry and find a new post worthy of your 50th.

Here, use this ad for your 50th.

This person is begging for FREE clothing, but wants only top of the line clothes.

The woman in your post is asking for a JOB! Not begging for money/clothes/handouts/etc.
