People who don't even try to look good for an interview.

I ran a work experience program where I placed people in jobs for nonprofits. I get that the people I was helping were often in rough places in their lives but I was still suprised how many just didn't care to try at all. For every homeless person who did their best to look as clean and neat as they could I interviewed 20 lazy fucks we go just dumped a gallon of perfume on instead of bathing. (And I gave those homeless the jobs after hooking them up with places to get new clothes and take showers before work)

How did you know who did their best and who didn't?

If you come in filthy dirty, in so much perfume I could smell you when you entered the building, shirt unbuttoned with a greasy inappropriate t-shirt on underneath, dusted in fast food crumbs, and obviously didn't even comb your fingers through your hair? Pretty sure you didn't try at all. Wash your face in a public bathroom sink, button your shirt, take the cigarette out from behind your ear, and at least TRY to look presentable. Sit up straight and don't start telling me about how you smell like booze because you were at this "fucking bitchin party" last night and you only just woke up at 2pm.

To contrast the homeless people I met who washed up as best they could and at least TRIED to look and act presentable? There's no contest as to who I would hire.
