When Temp X was in college, rejection letters from potential employers were called "Bullets." These Bullets served multiple purposes:
- They let you know you didn't get the job for which you interviewed.
- It was a matter of professional courtesy.
- The campus bar had special "Bullet" nights where you could exchange these letters for free beer. (Note: Those nights were typically followed by days in which Temp X skipped class.)
Who here has seen the movie Memento? (wait for show of hands) You know, the one with Guy Pearce where he can't make any new memories and he has to get tattoos and take pictures to keep track of everything. That must be it. These people Temp X is interviewing with all have this same condition. They were all in a horrible accident that...gee...now Temp X feels bad about this posting. It's not their fault they can't remember. It's just how they are.
It all makes sense now. You've wondered why people remake American Gladiators, Knight Rider or Short Circuit (yes, THAT Short Circuit). They're only remakes if you remember they existed in the first place. And since they all have this condition...
Now what was I here to talk about?
