My name is Steve Lively, and I’ve been in education for over 17 years, most of which was at a small-town public school. I teach English, if that happens to matter.
So. I hear you’re selling your house? Will you hire me to be your realtor? How about just the home estimate? I spend much of my time at home.
I understand you need an engine replaced in your 1957 Bel-Air convertible. Beautiful vehicle. Just gorgeous. Will you hire me to put it in? I’ve ridden in many cars.
It’s come to my attention that your roof is leaking? Wish to pay me to do that for you? Water is bad when it comes to stuff like that.
I noticed your neighborhood is lacking in security. Might you consider me to be your night watchman/security council? Lots of bad-looking dudes lurking around neighborhoods these days, boy. I’ve seen them. They’re a disaster.
That wound looks fresh. Let me get my, er, uh, stitching tools and I’ll clean you right up. I’ve seen Grey’s Anatomy AND ER. Don’t worry about the bill. For now. Believe me.
Some credit card companies are hounding you about a bill you paid? Hire me, and I’ll defend you in court. I know about money and stuff. Lawyers. That Judge Judy, though, is a nasty woman. Private server.
Your next-door neighbor just informed me that she’s seen you inviting multiple women into your home while your wife is away at work. You old dog! Women are beautiful little creatures, aren’t they? I know! No one can make a better sandwich, boy. I know. I can’t really help myself either. Anyway, need help with that? I’m very respectful of women. At least, the young, skinny, attractive white ones.
I hear the city is considering a multi-million dollar road renovation that will turn your quaint little two-lane street into a four-lane causeway. Well, that’s just business. I’ve actually got a lot of land. No, not here. Well, wait. Maybe here. So much land, ya know. My companies typically come through early and under budget. I’ve got some new buildings going up in…wait, what were we talking about?
That toothache? I can fix it. Let me tell you something. And I’m being totally serious here. I got a corn kernel stuck in my teeth once when I was a kid. These rigged movie theaters are in bed with the dentists. And if you don’t believe me, you should.
Just hire me. Trust me. I know stuff. I can do it. Emails.
Forget the fact that I’ve spent my entire life not actually doing any of the above things.
Forget that my resume would hit the the bottom of everyone else’s trash can for these jobs and responsibilities.
You just have to trust me.
Trust that I can do it for you. The best job. Because I have balls and I say what I mean.
I mean, let’s look at this. ISIS, right? Terrorism. Jobs are going to other countries. Disaster. Stamina. Wrong. China knows what we don’t. Those thugs in the Middle East? They figured it all out before anyone. Technology? It’s just a disaster. So very sad. Putin. There’s a leader. 33,000 emails. He and the north Vietnamese. They were at a Miss America pageant at one of my casinos one time…
Forget that. They’re just all trying to destroy my brand and my name.
Remember this: The other guys who want to work for you are crooks. They’re crooked. They’re rigging the system against me. You could be next. Choose me.
The vote is next week.
