So, we have a chain of sandwich shops here called Jimmy John's who pride themselves on the quickness of their delivery service.

Today, a bus that pulled up to my stop was plastered with a JJ's ad that said "Our special sauce is speed!"

Erm, really? Do they not test market these things? And are their advertising execs mad, or is this meant to be deliberate?

***edit***
Well, their other adverts do seem to be funny, but i'm still not sure that this is exactly as deliberate as the Mr. Happy Crack campaign.

That's reasonably tempting. Extra cash over the holidays is always a good thing. Can i apply with them online.

And hi!

I threw in an application for either part-time weekend or holiday help. Hopefully, i'll hear something back, the extra cash would be a good thing. Thanks for the tip!

And...i have an interview. They just phoned, so i go in on Saturday at 2 to meet with them. The chick who phoned seemed amused at the "ooh, i love this place" elements of my cover letter :)

Yay! In my interview she talked about how they called her and laughed about how "gushy" her cover letter was, cause she loved Lush so much. So go you! Hopefully we will soon be co-workers!
