The Job Application

by Jan Hurst-Nicholson
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 05/07/2015

I waited nervously for the sedate elderly man to finish reading my letter of application. With an ailing mother and four younger siblings to support, I desperately needed the job even if it would take me away from home. He was friendly and charming and my hopes rose. But then he enumerated his misgivings. I was far too young, I was too attractive, and it was not the life he would recommend for a young woman. I tried to argue, but the answer was still, no. Regretfully, he could not employ me as a stewardess on the newly-built SS Titanic.
