Bizarre things read while searching for employment

Sometimes searching for a job means considering relocation, which, in turn, means research. Here are a few of the fun things I've come across while researching different areas to relocate to based on jobs I'm considering applying for:

Apartment Rental Ad:

"Section 8, Bad Credit, and some criminal history may be considered. If you have had trouble renting in the past due to credit checks or criminal history, you will want to call us ASAP. We will try to work with you!"

Best "Quote from a Public University Job Listing" of the Day:
