Kill pill!

Nobody wants a pain reliever that’s anything less than extra-strength. 

“Give me the maximum-allowable dosage.  Figure out what will kill me and then back it off a little bit.”

This help-wanted advertisement was rejected as discriminatory by a British job centre.  Try to spot the problem:
“Domestic cleaner required for local hospital.  Must be fluent in English for health and safety reasons.  Previous experience preferred.  Must be reliable and hard working.”

Give up?  The offending line was the last: “Must be reliable and hard working.” 
The reason: “They could be sued for discriminating against unreliable people.”

  1. We've gone way overboard haven't we? The bosses can't even get individuals that they want to get the work done. It's a shame. I would want someone that was reliable and hard working too. Hello.

    Have a terrific day. ☺
