My late pet dog was offered a job
I registered my late pet dog at ALS Linguist Lounge recently. He was invited for an assessment and I did not reply, however, on 20th March he received a job offer and the following is the e-mail message received:
I have removed the details that ALS could use to identify my late dog. Clearly it says that the job matches my skills. I am asking which skills and whose skills. And yet, ALS claims on Channel 4 News that all their interpreters are qualified. What are they talking about? They can't even say that all their interpreters are human beings, as many people have registered their pets.
The following job contains a First Hour Automation Supplement on top of the normal expenses under the existing system. The supplement will be automatically added to the payment.
