Don't call us, we'll call you
Note to applicants: If you're hoping to land a city sanitation job, getting a citation for improper trash storage is probably not going to help.
That's the ironic situation brought to light by these photos, which accompany a city citation for "trash on sidewalk, street, alley or public/private lot" in Baltimore's Patterson Place neighborhood. (The bags aren't in a can with a lid.) A close-up on one of the pieces of trash shows a filled-out employment application. For -- yes -- the "Sanitation Department."
But hey, it could be worse. It could be an application for a code-enforcement job.
Tip of the hat to sharp-eyed reader Matt Gonter for noticing this.
