A woman's work is never done

Wall Street Journal:

As the downturn persists, U.S. employers flooded with resumes increasingly insist that job hunters jump through unusual hoops. An investment bank ordered an experienced female marketer to come dressed in fancy evening wear suitable for entertaining wealthy clients.

This reminds me of my theory that the task of the "restaurant hostess" isn't so much to chart a course to table from door as it is to announce the sexual preference of the restaurant owner as patrons arrive. And this is supposed to be a step up from waiting tables. Jobs kill me when you think about them.

Enough with foreplay. Let's get to business.
