The biggest disincentive to working for the secret squirrels is the kind of people you’d end up working with. A collective mass delusion of grandeur. Actually – make that adequacy.

Spy on your friends and family win fabulous prizes.

Ahh … the sexiness of “24” collides with the reality of sitting in a van for 14 hours with a colleague that had sauerkraut and beans for breakfast!

These types of jobs sound sexy, but are mostly dead bloody boring.

I wonder if spies have a union?

Imagine the poor prick vetting the applications … hundreds of wannabe heros – parking officers, security guards, police, railway inspectors … with their references and school swimming certificates.

are you assuming that his application is denied or do you know. If you know you are fired!!

You have already disclosed too much information by stating that you cannot discuss your interest. Your application is denied 🙂

Blergh. You too can sign up to be James Bond in a cardigan. No thanks.

I think my massive crystal meth addiction, gambling problems and tendancy to blurt out state secrets seemingly at random disqualify me from this type of work. Oh well…

Unfortunately I cannot discuss my interest in this job with anyone else, at this stage.
