He'll take the applications with him, get them filled out, and turn in all 10 applications at once. Then he'll go around to other businesses and do the same thing. He once got a notice from one place where they asked him to stop applying, as they said he had turned in 500 employment applications to them during one year, and that he was "flooding their databases" with all the applications he turned in.
He's pretty messed up, but yeah, anytime I hear the word application now, it just cracks me up, because this kid fills out like 30 applications a day and sends them in (he does a lot of online apps). The best part is, I don't even think he wants a job. He actually did get hired by one of these places, kind of early in the application game, and he was to start on a Monday morning. We ended up going to the casino on Sunday night, didn't get back until whenever, like 3 in the morning, so he just decided not to go in. A couple of days later, the place called him and actually asked him if he was going to come in, saying that he could still have the job. He told them no, and then they said don't ever apply here again. Ever since that time, he's been sending in 30 applications a day to places...
