Oh the pressure...it's too much!!

Email in my inbox this morning- no resume, just this email:

"I live in Vegas, I've been working in the Casino Industry for years and because of the gambling problem that I have, I have to get out of here. So you have to hire me." 


Back it up a second here.

Do you even know how much pressure that puts on me? We just barely, hardly, well now that I think about it, not even really- met. And I've got nothin' to go on, no resume, just a desperate cry for help. 

What am I supposed to do with this? Hunt him down by his email address and first name only and somehow, hook him up with Gambler's Anonymous? 

And then yesterday another guy put as his Objective:
 "To Improve My Living Situation"

OMG I'm like so totally alarmed and concerned for him now. 
Is he living in a box? 
Or perhaps he still lives with mommy and just needs to man up and get the hell out? 

I swear. 
Just a couple of sentences can send my brain into a tizzy over perfect strangers.
All of this, just to employ America, one person at a time. 

Like eating an elephant with a spoon.
