Weird, Dude With Horrifying Face Tattoo Claims No One Wants To Hire Him
At the end of every job application reads the phrase “Equal Opportunity Employer,” but no one checks if the company is operating by that mantra. So, next time you feel shitty about lying on your resume just remember, it works both ways.
The bottom line is that no matter how qualified one is for the vacant position, there are a few deal breakers that can disqualify a candidate immediately. Like a fucking face tattoo that covers half a dude’s melon.
A 19-year-old New Zealander named Mark Cropp learned this the hard way after recently being released from prison for pulling a knife on a tourist during a drug deal where Cropp was trying to sell fake cannabis, UNILAD reports. While in prison, Cropp’s cell mate was his own brother, and he convinced his younger bro to get a face tattoo to deter prisoners from bullying him.
So, Mark obliged, and went with a super subtle ‘DEVEST8’ tattoo, as pictured below.
Posting to a job Facebook page, Mark wrote:
Hey im keen as to work but have one thing that is stoping me and thats my tattoo on my face [sic].
Keen as on job or work place that will take me on.
Mark also spoke to the New Zealand Herald, stating:
One employment place said to me: ‘I wouldn’t employ you with that on you face, I wouldn’t even take a second look at you’.
I’ve had other people that just shrugged and laughed at me.
I was over people judging for my facial tattoo… that’s why I made the decision to put that photo on Facebook, to turn around and say ‘I am just a normal human being, you do not have to judge me because of the way I look’.
Best of luck to Mark in his search and better luck to his future co-workers.
