24 people were suckered into interviewing for a "director of operations" position, a.k.a the toughest job in the world. Degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts necessary, you're on call 24 hours a day, there's no vacations, major holidays the workload goes up. Oh. and the salary? $0.

Come the twist (FOUR minutes later, this is veering into "too long didn't watch" territory), the job is "mom".

While that's all sappy and dandy, being a "mom" isn't a job, it's a responsibility.

The sender? Cardstore. Oh yes, all this to shill cards. Guys, mom's are supposed too get kid-made cards. And I'm talking about from their own kids, not the ones in factories in China.
