My first job was at a supermarket, and one common task at night would be to clean the sidewalk off of dirt and trash. I'd use a leaf blower for most things, but I'd use a broom at the bench where (mostly managers) would have their breaks with their cancer-sticks. Sometimes there'd be someone out on the bench while I was cleaning and this time it wasn't a co-worker or manager, it was just some random person. He looked really shady as he was putting out his bad habit in the ash tray. He basically asked me if I could put in a good word for him as he wanted a job there, but he didn't even give me his name. Good thing for him he didn't, because that would just cause me to put in a bad word for him. But seriously what did he expect for me to go up to the hiring manager and say "Hey this weirdo wants a job, he seems like a good candidate to me".
