Skipper's

When I was a little kid, Skipper's once gave out a bicycle reflector as their kid's meal toy. I did not happen to go to Skipper's that week, so I did not get one. (I don't remember how I learned about the promotion - it's possible that a friend of mine had one.)

For the next several years, every time I went to Skipper's I would ask if the toy was a bicycle reflector (it never was) and fill out a comment card telling them to have bicycle reflectors as their kid's meal toy. I suspect this made the job of reading and tallying customer comments a little more surreal for someone. However, it was totally ineffective as a method of getting a bicycle reflector.

Anyway, I bring this up because I'm starting to feel similarly about job applications.

(Side note: I've been spending less time online and more time walking outside, so I have no idea what y'all are up to these months. Sorry! Feel free to let me know in the comments.)
