I've got four rescue dogs. The old lady has been with me for her whole life and she's about 18 now (I say about because I have one friend who insists she's closer to 20) and in her long life she's learned some amazing skills. She could fetch, pull wagons, could count by barking, etc. Now she mostly just snores, but that's an old lady's prerogative, ya know? The other 3, though... I'm not going to say they have no skills. I'm going to say they're very independent thinkers who use their skills only when they're good and ready.

One Reddit user wanted to know what some people's pets skillsets were... and honestly I kind of feel better about my uselessly adorable crew. At least none of them have ever murdered a bunny in front of the family on Easter.


They asked:

Congratulations! Your pet has a job interview tomorrow but needs help writing their resume. What are your pets best skill/qualities?


And sure, some of the answers involved a little murder but there were also some more useful skills here like an ability to bring you your mail or handily pooping in the bath tub for easy cleanup! Some replies were edited for clarity.

Party Animal

On Easter one year, my cat killed a bunny and brought it to our back porch where he ate it in front of us, so I'm gonna say holiday party planning.

The Many Talents of Ozzie

Hi, my name's Ozzie, I'm a border collie, and I'd like to explain why I'd be a good candidate for the HR department opening.

  • As a non-human, I could provide human resources with a truly neutral, objective third-party approach.
  • I rarely poop on the floor.
  • I photograph well, for social media appearances.
  • I can act as security, alerting personnel to the presence of intruders, including burglars, burgers, mailmen, cats, and any sort of food, which I can then dispose of.
  • I can round up all the employees in one place, making them much easier to shear.

Swim Coach

Hullo I am Allie. I am a good girl.

I am a single mum of 14 and an entrepreneur. I don't know any tricks whatsoever, not even how to shake, but I won a beauty pageant when I was younger which gave me the confidence to start my own business of soliciting pats and treats.

In exchange for you giving me a pat, you get to pat a beautiful dog! It's a great business model and I have been highly successful.

I am also a great teacher, I taught all of my 14 children to swim by dragging them into the lake at only six weeks old. They are all excellent swimmers now, and if I see any other dogs near the water I am sure to drag them in and help to test and strengthen their swimming skills.

Mail Room

Mr. Kitty delivers the mail.

Every day, he drags each incoming piece in his teeth from the letter slot to where I'm sitting. The heavier items get batted to their destination.

If a piece is too heavy, he'll "MROW!" tenaciously until the human fetches it. He's totally efficient and reliable.

Any Location Except The Bathroom

He can count to 3, fetch things, bring toilet roll to you in any location except the bathroom. He also takes compliments really well and purrs loudly when you whisper to him about how purrfect he is, which can be quite relaxing for the workforce.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
