I once lost out on a decent job because of my minor latex allergy (it was maintenance and biohazard waste disposal at one of the top hospitals in the country)... I'm pretty sure there's a "so dumb [I] failed a blood test" joke in here somewhere but I'm still too bitter to find it.
you know that's illegal right? they can't discriminate because of an allergy. they are required to provide "reasonable accommodation" ie: latex-free gloves, like vinyl ones. I work with a girl (in a pastry kitchen) who almost got fired for not wearing gloves. turned out she was not wearing them cause she's allergic to latex. they ordered some vinyl ones, problem solved.
this reminds me of a less hardcore version of a saw game like heres how it would start for him JIGSAW-hello lets play a game u have no money to pay ur bills and r in desperate need for a job but the only job is one tht ud be allergic to can u with stand ur allergies to make the money u need. OP-noooooooo!!!
Is there some sort of requirement that you have to eat the nuts? If not then what's the problem?
People with severe nut allergy cannot even stand the smell of nuts. In high school we had a girl who was severely allergic even to the smell, and we were banned from taking peanut butter sandwiches and snicker-bars etc to school! Her throat would swell up and she cannot breathe even just from the smell. Also, a while a go on the news there was a teenage girl who had died after kissing her boyfriend after he had peanut butter on toast before school! Why do you think it always says "may contain traces of nuts" on almost all chocolate substances? Because nut allergies are quite serious.
a vital point OP seems to not grasp: peanuts aren't nuts. most people with peanut allergies don't have tree nut allergies. So peanuts wouldn't effect someone with a nut allergy. And unless your peanut allergy is incredibly severe, you can work around them, just wear a mask! I have a bad enough peanut allergy where I can't eat them, but I can smell em without harm.
The OP probably either didn't think about wording when they wrote the FML, or meant to say peanut allergy. Since they're an adult that's looking for a job, we can probably assume that they know what they're allergic to, and wouldn't turn down a job in this economy unless they were sure that it would be hazardous to their health.
