    I called a company this week about a job that was listed on Craigs list. I told the guy that answered the phone I was intrested in the job and the first words out of his mouth were "are you gay". I don't hide the fact that I am so I said yes sir I am. He told me that he didn't want any gays working at this company. I was so shocked I did know what to say. He then hung up on me. I thought about it for awhile then I called back to ask him why. When he answered I told him that I called before and you hung up on me. He then said I had the wrong number and hung up again. I checked the number and I had the correct number. I have been upset about this all week. I really need to find a new job and I know I have the qualifications for this job. I have tryed to call him back to give him a piece of my mind but he will not answer now. Caller ID. If any of you would like to give him a piece of your mind for me It would not bother me a bit. four one two -five zero eight- two two five five. Who ever I work for next will get one great employee I will tell you that. Guys like him do not deserve good employees. Well I'm off to find a new job again.

    My boss used to be that way till I told him to go fuck himself if he don't like it.
    Now he treats me like a brother. icon_lol.gif

    What a very strange question to ask as the very first.

    *ring*
    "Hello?"
    "Hi, I'm calling about your job posting on Craigslist"
    "Are you gay?"


    was that really the conversation?

    That was always my boss' first question to every guy, and he's ask the girls if they were lesbian.
    Being a contract job, it's perfectly legal to ask.
    Being an asshole, it was perfectly legal for me to tell him to go fuck himself. icon_lol.gif

    What he did would be illegal in my state. Unfortunately, he didn't break the law in your state of Pennsylvania.

    For heaven's sakes, why would you want to work for him now?

    Go find another job.

    And then work pnchanging the law in your state so such discrimination is illegal...or move to somewhere where it is.
