This topic is one I stole from another forum, but It tends to be so funny.
I know most people look at resumes and applications when they come regardless of wether their management or not. So.....

I think the best one I saw was when I was working at a Club called the Standard. On the application where it asks why you want to work here, the girl wrote "to support my habits". Granted she was polish and answered other questions strangely, but I thought this was just to funny.
Another was when I was working at East Side Marios. One of the questions on the applications is "How long do you plan on staying with East Side Mario's?" and honest to god the guys answer was "until I get fired, or I decide to or quit."


Best interview mishap:
This was also when I was working at the Standard. I asked to girl if she has ever had disputes with a customer and if so; how she handled it. She replied "A customer once saw me eating the left overs off his plate and got really mad about it. I simply explained to him that he hadn't planned to take it with him anyway."

Do those sheets they give you to fill out at the doctors office count? If yes, My sister was sick and I was asking her the questions out loud. Most of these answers ended up on the papers.
Are you pregnant?
God, I hope not.
Do you smoke?
unsure.gif ...
Well?
...Um, no.
Good. What are your hobbies?
Smoking.

This is the same girl who put School and Eating for hobbies on her job application for The Cake Factory. laugh.gif

I always have a huh.gif moment when looking at the question "have you committed of a crime for which you have not been pardoned?"

It just strikes me as the same lovely english as "have you stopped beating your wife?"

Can I take this opportunity to direct your attention towards Overqualified. Its a collection of cover letters sent out by Joey of a softer world fame. Comic genius.

A friend of mine recently filled in an application form where one of the questions was :- Who'd win in a fight Sean Penn or David Hasselhoff? And having been taught well by my friends, his house mates obviously said the Hoff!

Yeah I've seen some pretty weird stuff on applications to. Like "Have you see all the police acdemy movies? How many times?", Or "Do you have a nickname?" and they wanted you to draw a picture of yourself on that one. laugh.gif

We usually get given forms at school to fill in about our personal details. They never actually take them in, just check we've done them, so we all just have a laugh with them. Last year when it said 'emergency contact number' we all wrote '999' I'll go have a look for my sheet and put on some more because my memory fails to serve right now.

"Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form." - Plato

We've gotten a few school surveys about personal things as well. It asked about sexual orientation in one place, so about 80 people put transexual when they realized it was anonymous. It confused the school counselors to no end. laugh.gif It had one bit about "What number would you call if you couldn't call anyone you knew and you were in trouble?" They wanted us to say 911, but the same 80 or so put 666 and wrote "Hail Satan" in the comments box. There was a lot of stuff on the announcements about talking to your counselor if you had any problems after that. biggrin.gif

my sister misread the question on her provisional driving lisence form Can you read a number plate as x distance with or without glass? with the answer no
they sent back the form and cheque questioning her blind status. We still laugh at her now nearly 10 years on
