Would you take a job that works you 24/7/365 with no breaks and no pay, even if someone told you that it’s the most important job in the world? Probably not.
But your mom did.
That’s the gist of the video up top, published this week by American Greetings and Cardstore. With Mother’s Day just under a month away (May 11), the makers of the clip set up 24 interviews for a job titled “Director of Operations,” and explained that whoever gets the position would pretty much be feeding, burping and changing the “associate” all day every day with no pay and little thanks.
As you might have guessed, most of the interviewees didn’t go for it, and a few bluntly told the job recruiter that he’s a crazy person. After he revealed the gag (that “Director of Operations” is just another term for “Mom”), most got the joke …
… some appeared a little confused and perhaps even a little disappointed that they had applied and interviewed for a job that ended up being a massive prank.
Oh well. Call your mom!
