I'm not much of a coffee drinker. I'll drink a café mocha if I need something to warm me up. I mostly drink tea though.

Me neither. Never drank a cup of coffee in my life. Closest I'll ever get is Coke/Pepsi or Hot Chocolate.

I'm not a coffee drinker either. Since this is a cafe lets do a bit of talking. Lately I've been wanting to do something very meaningful, so I'd like to share where I'll be applying to volunteer. In order to be selected, I need some "creative responses". Does anyone have suggestions to help me be selected?


Condom manufacturer seeks Canadian volunteers to test products
October 22, 2007
THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO - A condom company is looking for 1,000 volunteers to test its products and report back on their findings.

It opened the job competition Monday and will continue accepting applicants until Nov. 4. "Applicants will be asked a series of questions to make sure they are a good fit for this dream job," the company said in a statement.

"Questions include how often do you use condoms? And why do you want to be a Durex condom tester?"

In an interview, Steve Mare, brand manager for Durex Consumer Products, conceded that it's more of a contest or survey that will help the company gauge consumer satisfaction and preferences than an actual job offering.

"There's certainly an element of fun involved with the program and we don't want to deny that, " he said from Norcross, Ga.

The testers will be sent a variety of products in the mail. They will have to log onto a website and provide feedback to the company, including what they liked and didn't like.

To get the job, the company is looking, in particular, for creative responses to the question about why they want to be a condom tester, Mare said.

"That'll be the primary way that we differentiate applicants from each other."

Tell them you need something to do with your children on quiet afternoons. They'll understand.

^ I love tea. Three weeks ago I was invited to a tea party and it was friggin amazing, the whole Alice and the Wonderland theme. I borrowed a top hat. Got to have all these small sweets and wonderful tea. It was fantastic. I still talk about that day at work.

But anyways WaterlooInvestor as Premier of Ontario I order you to give us a copy of your application for Durex.

Condom testing... what won't they think of next? I think they once did something like that in front of the Air Canada Centre during a concert I saw 5 years ago in Toronto.

Something needs to be done to improve the Ottawa development thread. On SSP they're on their 4th one and it's at 104 some pages. We have this dinky little thread with only 15 pages and it doesn't get much action.

OMG!! You've been hanging around "mr(Bossy Boots)x" too much!!

I'm totally hooked on coffee. Have to have it every morning, or someone gets hurt. I love tea in the late afternoon, as it really gives me energy then, but it doesn't cut it in the morning. If you don't drink coffee... stay away from it. A pain in the neck being hooked on the stuff. Just say NOOOOOO!!!!

I find the way you did that link to be interesting. How do you get a link to be an underlined word like that?

I predict this thread will be a disaster of epic proportions...

Carry on
