Life Lessons: When Not to Text

I don’t even know how to start this post other than “Please read this and tell me that you would have had the same reaction I did.”

File this under: Never text to strangers.

Umm ok, so the assumption here is that because I’m looking for work I don’t get to question things. All I was asking for was a little context. It’s totally ok for you to text me with a “job opportunity” and I’m not allowed to question your legitimacy? Who does business this like? I wanna find his boss and pass this little exchange along. Dude, how do you have a job? 

Apparently there’s a great opportunity that I lost out on! Oops. Anyone want Alex’s number? Sounds totally legit.

I would have done the exact same thing! Also, if you get a random text for a job opportunity, I have a feeling that it's not legit. Especially when they react like that!

Oh my gosh! That's horrible. and bizarre.

I'm calling pyramid scheme. MAYBE one of those MLM businesses, but not the good ones like Scentsy or 31

Yeah sounds sketchy to me. I wouldn't worry about it, even it had been legit I don't think I'd want to work for a company that does business like that.

This is weird.. I don't know how I would react on something like that.. I guess something between changing my number or breaking down laughing..

Katie said...

What the hell?? ...how dare you question a random number telling you about a job opportunity. You should have just responded something like, "I'm not interested in being a prostitute, thanks" haha. :)

Melissa said...

Yep, i would have done the same thing. Seriously doubt his business is legit. You don't text people about job opportunities. And even before the stupid part... "call me asap"... i don't know. Just not professional! DUMB! Did you say anything back??? Please tell me you did! Something sarcastic. Haha.
