The unnamed restaurant also wants to avoid people who “have to give friends rides to work later than we start work, call out sick with an excuse because you partied too hard the night before your shift, experience flat tires every week and suddenly become deathly ill on Coachella and Splash House weekends.”
The ad strictly warns “you will not last if you want to score social points with a cute patron by giving away food and beverage on our dime with our inventory.”
It continues to get more niche, as the job posting advises people to “not apply if you need nights off because your grandma poisoned you with her ham again or your band has a gig and you need weekends off because your favorite roller derby team made it to the finals.”
The hiring manager goes on to list more unacceptable reasons to call out, including claiming that “it’s ski season, you accidentally got on a plane to Vegas, you haven’t surfed in a while” or “you have a headache after going to too many garage sales.”
