I don’t know how many of you have seen him on TV yet, but you certainly know who I’m talking about; the Pets.com sock puppet. As many of you may know, Pets.com was unable to make a profit and was eventually liquidated and acquired my Petsmart. As a result, the sock puppet lost his job as the spokespuppet for pets.com.
Here’s the thing: he’s back on TV. I was a little too shocked that a sock was able to get another job after being downsized to remember what company he’s working for, but I think he’s selling cars or car loans to people with bad credit. Still, he’s back on the tube, back in the workforce.
It’s sortof inspiring, and makes me wonder what I’d need to add to my resume to be able to compete with socks. I thought other job candidates would be humans, but if I have to compete with socks, I don’t know where to start.
