No coffee for you

Today, I walked into Starbucks for a job application. I asked the manager if they were hiring, as I really need a job. He looked me up and down and replied, "NO!" There was a 'Now hiring' sign in the window. FML

WHAT A DICK. You should go back, ask for a drink and throw it at him.

#4 - re-read the fml verrry carefully alot of places have those up and just never take them down even when they don't need people.... like the kfc near my place that has the rusted, crooked sign near the drive through.

Um, of course they're hiring if there is a now hiring sign up! That's the stupidest question to ask. YDI.

its okay, i work at starbucks and theyre a bunch of dicks

Why would he want to hire someone who either was unobservant or asked questions to which they already knew the answer? He was probably just saving himself some time.

I think you should re-read the fml closely. It says that the manager looked op up and down BEFORE saying no, as he would've just said no if they weren't hiring anymore.

OK, you can totally sue him. He's not allowed to hire/not hire anybody based on gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, blah blah blah. Also, I agree with sonofskam. Go throw a drink in his face!

take it easy, that guy is asshole

Maybe they just forgot to take down the sign.

How were you dressed? Dressed to impress? I've seen people apply for jobs in ratty (or otherwise) street clothes. Always, and I mean always, dress up a bit. Show them that you want the job, no matter how the employees dress.
