You Are Best Suited For a Job in the Field Of...

Adam is interviewing for a new job today.
This isn't just any job, it the job!
His dream job!
In honor of this momentous occasion, I thought I would share a little story with you.

When I was pregnant with Caleb, Adam was still in college.
During my last trimester, he moved back home and did online courses to complete his
political science degree.
Some nights he would come home from work, start his homework and still come to bed incredibly late only to get up and do it again the next day.
I was so proud of his determination.

One night, he got an assignment that required him to take an online apptitude test.
It was a long.
He spent a lot of time concentrating on the questions trying to get an answer that would boost his self-esteem.

You are best suited for a job in the field of:
Fast Food Management
Carpet Weaving

I laughed uncontrollably.
Adam did not find it nearly as entertaining.
Once I gathered myself, we rarely spoke of the horrid results.

Last week as he laid the flooring in the laundry room, he was meticulous.
When he looked to me for my final approval I couldn't help it.
I blurted out, "As good as you are at laying floor, I am sure you would have been an excellent carpet weaver."

I think a few of those should not even be an option for the test...carpet weaver? It should say "you are best suited for laying carpet!" :)
