A month ago,
I saw an ad for a job opening
And went to there office;
I new I was qualifyed.  
I met with the personel manager,
He said my resume was very impresive.  
I said your welcome, Ive worked hard
To get where Im at today.    
We talked for a while,
And I answered all his questions pretty good.
At the end the personel manager said
We will need a writing sample;
I was ready, of coarse, and handed it to him,
A report I had wrote for my old job.

That was a month ago.
Why does it take them such along time
To make up there mind?

Ruth:

Hmmm.  I DO have nice legs.  Let me think about the short skirt thing.

And Jenni, don't knock Ally McBeal ... even though she would wash out in a REAL law firm, she is still making a whole heckova lot more $$$ than all of us put together.

Brad:

I think it's "Ally" (short for Allison).

Philip:

You English celebrate hog mating season?  I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, especially coming from a people who think public television is interesting.  

Jenni:

Good luck in your job hunt, btw.
