On an Earlier Job

Many years ago, I was hired to work in a retail shop selling hobby supplies.

I was really quite pleased with myself.  I was new in town and it had been a few years since I had been in the workforce.

One day, while I was at work, feeling very smug and competent, one of the sales reps stopped in for a visit with the manager.  I overheard the following conversation.

Sales Rep:  New staff?

Manager: (sadly) No one else applied.
