My goddamn resume, jeez, lay off.

Ugh, just give me a job, OK? I have all sorts of apropos experience. Just look:

A Moveable Feast or some punny catering shit, Cocktail Waitress, Summer 2008

  • Tried to get someone kicked out of an open-bar wedding for being over-served because they made it seem in training like that actually happened.
  • Was, at 19, hit on by a 40 year old married man who told¬†me he, too, “was a working man.”¬†Heavens me, I should have let him rescue me!
  • Was studying German at the time and there was another German BA working with me. “Not to worry,” he told me. “This isn’t my main gig. I’m also a pretty accomplished local magician.”

Gwinnett County Health Department, Pool Inspector, Summer 2009

  • Shrieked at a pregnant woman to get out of an unchlorinated pool and sent her weeping into the showers.
  • Found a bra in an emergency call box in an old folks home, and the geriatric volunteers sent to lead me through the complex chucked and high fived.
  • Realized one apartment complex was definitely using their chemical storage room to store hard drugs and was followed at close distance by a watch car until I got far enough away.

BJ’s Brewhouse, Hostess, Summer 2011

  • Was asked by exactly the expected number of men whether BJ’s came complimentary with their order.
  • Quit after 3 months and honestly my boss didn’t even look up from his computer when I told him.

A College Access Non-Profit, National Volunteer Service, Fall 2011-Summer 2013

  • Convinced a bunch of teens to go into debt attending college. Either the Lord’s work or the Devil’s! TBD!
  • Worked with 50 23-year-olds, 100% of whom were of lesser emotional maturity than the multiple teen moms I worked with.
  • Made less money than I currently pay in rent in a year.

Everybody’s Bitch, The University of Texas, Summer 2013-Summer 2014

  • Learned 3 days after being hired that my direct supervisor chose me because she thought the honors society on my resume was a social sorority.
  • Was once told by one of the ladies who could boss me around, “Great news!!! One of our donors wives just died and we get all that money!”
  • Was instructed to remove the images of children of color from our brochures so our white donors would think more money would go to their kids.

Comedian, December 2013-Present

  • Dear god, what am I doing?
  • I am also a pretty accomplished local magician.

Marketing for an undisclosed non-profit where people are decent, Summer 2014-Present

  • This is the level of respect and circumspection you can expect for me.

Call me! My mom still pays my phone bill so you know I’ll be turned on.
