How much do you know for sure about Christmas and the Biblical Christmas story? Read on.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Suze shares her story of another Cry Baby generation job applicant. She wrote this after reading my post, Cry baby job interview on the Blogging Meetup website.
I have had a few “Mr Zirkles” apply for work when I had my own business. It simply amazes me that some new to the workforce are so incredibly stupid when it comes to a job interview. I once had a person ask me, before I barely had time to ask them to please sit down if the “lunch hour is really an hour and not some arbitrary time period less than an hour” . when I asked why he needed to know he said “because I take a 45 minute nap after i eat”. he didn’t get the job.

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8:
