Nothing to be done

As i look around the room, observing the people here, all of them looking for a job I’m told the schedule. It does not work for me, but i decide to stay anyways, i thought it could be interesting. It is a group interview.

There are about 30 of us, and the interviewer just asked us to sell her a tooth brush. An electric tooth brush. There are all kinds of people here. All of them with the same objective, getting this phone sales job. In a country mostly unemployed.

I’m only here looking for a student job that can fit into my universities schedule and this is a full time kind of thing. Everyone here probably needs it more than i do.

Just about 45% of the people here are capable of improvising a decent dialogue about this hypothetical electric tooth brush.

No one bought the brush, despite its rechargeable batteries. Or its interchangeable head. Or the colour options. Or its extreme high rotation speeds.
