While applying for jobs almost all of us have come across people asking for too much or in simple words people who want you to jump through hoops for a minimum-wage job. Explaining the same experience a Reddit user narrated how she took that extra mile to answer to the employer's needs. "You'd like a video resume? You got it! Okay, so this happened about 7 years ago and I just never really thought to share it here until now," Casey wrote in the post. "I was looking for jobs in small shops in my town. I had just recovered from a nervous breakdown so my husband was stressing that the goal of this job was to dip my toe back into daily life, which meant anything that even hinted at being stressful was not an option. (We were very very poor and was husband was working three jobs to keep us afloat while I recovered, he's quite literally the best.)"

"I dropped off my resume at a cute little shop and heard back by email, asking me to write a brief essay about why I wanted to work at her store. I knew I wasn't supposed to go work for someone difficult, but I was trying to stay positive, so I wrote the essay," she continued. "It felt weird and insulting to have to find different ways to be like 'I'm super passionate about registers and dealing with rude people?' But I did it." However, the employer came back with yet another demand: to create a video resume. "To make minimum wage. At a small clothing store,” Casey pointed out. That was where she drew the line.
