Are you a Grandma with a big heart? Then you might just have what it takes to be GE's "Great American Grandma," who will help demonstrate new GE kitchen appliances for $50,000 a year.


GE published a job posting claiming they're looking for a "big-hearted, age-defying, lives-life-to-the-fullest and brings-out-the-best-in-everyone kind of Grandma."



If you feel that fits the bill, they're also keen on a Grandma who's full of laughs and "believes in tradition but is anything but traditional."

Whatever Grandma GE decides on will work 10-15 hours a month, demonstrating how GE appliances work, for $50,000 a year. On top of that, the lucky grandmother will also receive five new GE kitchen appliances of her own!

To apply, the Grandma or her friends and family must send a video to GE saying why they'd be the ideal "Great American Grandma." Many Grandmas have already posted their auditions online:

We're never that surprised when we encounter people who are lackluster at their jobs. Bad waiters, rude customer service people, dishonest contractors, or inept colleagues abound throughout daily life.

But it's interesting that we expect to encounter that kind of ineptitude far less with certain professionals.

On the internet, people tend to say things they likely would not in the real world. The anonymity of a forum or comment section--composed only of verbal contributions beneath made up names--compels us to socialize with less inhibition; we take more risks with the peers we can't see in the flesh.
