This is purported to be an actual job application that a 75 year old senior submitted  to     Wal-Mart in Arkansas .... and they hired him  because he was so honest and funny!


NAME: (withheld)

MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER? If I had one, would I be here?

DO YOU HAVE ANY PHYSICAL CONDITIONS THAT WOULD PROHIBIT YOU FROM LIFTING UP TO 50 Lbs.? Of what?

DO YOU HAVE A CAR? I think the more appropriate question here would  be "Do you have a car that runs?"

WHAT  WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS? Living in the Bahamas  . .  Actually, I'd like to be doing that now.

DO YOU  CERTIFY THAT THE ABOVE IS TRUE AND COMPLETE TO THE BEST OF  YOUR KNOWLEDGE?  Yes; Absolutely.
