Now I know not everything that seems a big deal to some people is a big deal to anyone else…. but some things cannot just be shrugged away.
Today my boss was interviewing for a grunt. You know someone who does all the grunt work (like me), but content to be just that. Anyway, this guy goes into his interview and starts to leave. “How did it go?” I asked.
“They asked me for a police check”, he seemed a little upset.
“They do that with everyone,” my co-worker assured him.
“Are they just checking for warrants, or like a full record?”
Most people I know have some record or another. Nothing to get put away for, usually a public drunkenness or possession charge. “So long as it’s not too bad you’ll be okay.”
“Oh, good,” he says. “Nothing really, just a few domestic violence charges.” He shrugs like it is nothing.
Really dude? THAT is no big deal to you? I’m thinking the main reason they do a police check is to weed out those who either are drug dealers or those with violence issues, especially among those with no voice to speak out. Oh, creepy, creepy, creepy. I think on to the next interview.
