Stabbed Student Shows Up For Job Interview

A 16-year-old student went to a job interview instead of the hospital after he was stabbed. The Staff at the King West Vets veterinary clinic noticed blood on the students leg during the co-op placement interview and called police. "He did really well on the interview and we were very proud of him for sticking to the appointment," said veterinarian Kent Ackerman. He wouldn't say if the student will get the job. You know times are tough when showing up after being stabbed doesn't land you the job.

Where're the images from? Even in the quoted text above, it's clear the student didn't show up with a knife sticking out of his HEAD (which would have been suitably epic). Instead, this is an interesting but not-that-dramatic story.

What next? "Study shows Slashdot editors are 30 year old geeks that still live with Mom & Dad"?

They noticed blood on his leg but didn't notice the HANDLE OF A KNIFE sticking out of his head?

AFAICT the X-ray is real but not connected with the story- in other words, it's attention-grabbing crap in this context.

If it were my business he were interviewing at, he would have got the job.

That's exactly the sort of dedication we like here. We don't care if you're dying, sick or injured. We want you behind your counter, and smiling about it.
