A recent post on The Daily Dot suggested that it might be wise to avoid hiring an intern as an intern.
“Why would you hire an idiot to fix a car?” the post read.
“I can tell you that it’s very easy to lose a job if you hire someone who just wants to do nothing but play with your car.”
The post was quickly deleted after it was revealed it was a mistake.
The post’s author also commented that he’d heard that people would “always be looking for idiots” when hiring interns, but he didn’t specify what the “incompetence” was.
As the post was removed from The Daily Dot, a comment was added that asked, “Is it okay to hire an incompetent?”
It seems to be an issue that’s getting more attention on the internet.
It’s not entirely clear whether it’s a new trend or if it’s an old one, but the idea of hiring someone who’s just too busy to actually do the work is gaining traction.
In February, an employee at an automotive repair shop in Texas was fired after he failed to fix an Audi Q7.
The dealership had hired an intern for the job.
This is just one example of a trend that’s growing.
After months of being called a “idiot,” people are starting to realize that they’re not just wasting their time.
And they’re using the hashtag #IamNotAnIncompetent to share their experiences.
