I attempted to apply for a job at a fast food restaurant in Atlanta Georgia after being advised to do so by the unemployment office.
The manager said that I am overqualified, and overcultured, to work with the people that are typical there.
I asked them how, and she told me, with a question mark.

A HS graduate ?, A Master's degree in business ?, A Property manager ?
No criminal record?
Perfect credit.

And let me see, dress flats, pantyhose, a pantsuit, makeup, perfume, jewelry and your hair do.
A louis Vuitton purse ?

A Buick Enclave ?

Mam, you are a liability to us, in fast food, in
a major city like here in Atlanta, because you are overqualified and over cultured.

Why don't you apply next door at credit Suisse ?


I asked them how I would be a liability.
They told me, "lawsuits".
The people who work here do illegal things because they don't know any better.
It's accepted where most of them are from, by similar fools.

And if you get injured, you are likely to know we'll what your rights are, and have access to them.


Should they have said this to me, and we're they correct?

Over-qualified means your requested pay scale was above their starting limits AMD also means you won't be staying there long because as soon as a better job crops up for higher pay, you'll be gone.

Many if not most police departments won't even hire above average IQ people for the same reason ... that they spend a lot on training a new police recruit and if you were smart enough, you'd be moving on to bigger and better things, soon after police training.

Another *hint* the fast food place gave you was ... they implied you 'appeared' to be cleancut and not a strung out junkie.  The place might even be a 'front' for drug pushing.  They don't want a 'narc' on the employee list.  I've had several experiences just like that ... turned out to be a 'front' for dope dealing.

Take them up on the hint and go apply at the credit company!

Vocational Rehab sent me to work in fast food after a stroke. The other women complained I walked around looking like my sh*t don't stink.

I did that, and managed to avoid foreclosure and welfare in the process.
