Heard this on the radio when I went out for lunch.
A man called David Rose decided toÂ go all out to get the job he wanted.
In order to persuade bosses to hire him, the 29-year-old first sent them a jack-in-the-box, with a picture of himself inside and the legend "Sometimes you don't have to think out of the box to get the right answer."
He followed that up with a pair of wine bottles, the first bearing a recorded message saying hello' and the second designed to look like a message in a bottle with a note inside with burned edges and deliberately aged with gravy.
Suprisingly, that didn't work. So he went all out, and erected a 6ft x 5ft billboard â€” with a picture of him aged six and the message: â€œWhen I grow up I want to work at Lawton.â€
