I was working at a temp agency screening incoming applicants.
There was a young lady sitting at a table across the office from me quietly filling out an employment application one day. She was neatly dressed and looked like she had taken great care in getting ready to come meet with me. She seemed very sweet.
"Where it asks if you've been convicted of stuff..."
"Do they mean, like, anything or just really bad stuff?"
At this point I had been working there long enough that nothing really phased me. I had processed applicants with prison style Klan tatoos the day before.
"Yes, please list everything. Some offenses may not disqualify you from being placed, but we need all of the information."
By this I meant that we weren't going to, say, not give someone a job assembling parts in a factory because they hadn't paid their child support five years ago.
So she goes back to writing. When I get the application back it includes one entry in the before mentioned field: Assult with a deadly weapon.
I did not ask for clarification.
