A man showed up for a job interview near Sacramento naked and high on methamphetamine, and now cellphone footage of his fight with police has gone viral.

Jose Ayala didn't make the best first impression at a Del Paso Heights-area welding shop when he showed up last week frazzled and unclothed, says shop owner Chris Johnson, who added he won't soon forget the job applicant.

Welding shop? Naked?

That and frying bacon... two things not to do naked.

I tend to reflect on unsuccessful interviews and try to find out my mistakes and learn from them. That shouldn’t be too hard in this case.

Now he can collect disability compensation until he’s old enough to “retire” from it.

I once had a guy take his pants off on the job and he was running around in a pair of his sisters lime green stretch shorts.

Lime green stretch shorts and steel toed boots makes for a real fashion statement.

Was it for arc welding or oxy-acetylene welding? Meth is fine for arc welding, but the oxy in oxy-acetylene shows that it goes better with synthetic opioids like oxycodone.

Thank you very much sir. We’ll keep your application on file, and if we ever have a job opening which requires a naked meth addict we’ll call you, m’kay?

No I heard he hung around longer than he should have trying to get the job and exposed himself to be a real big weenie.

On an application under job history I listed “Trustee at the Jackson County Jail”.

18 months later I was a foreman in the paint department.

Welder? He wanted to be a naked welder? Normally those guys wear leather aprons and other types of protection. It’s not like he was applying to work on the phone bank. LOL

At least he was on time for the interview. Many of the naked meth-heads that I’ve interviewed can’t make it to the interview on time.

“I’m naked.....I don’t have a watch.”

“Well, use your manhood for a sundial for crying out loud.”

“I tried that, but I was always off by an hour.”

It’s a bold move. Applicants try to make an impression on a prospective employer, and try to get them to remember you over the other applicants. I’d say he succeeded admirably!

Ya know, the LEO haters should just try doing that job once in a while. It might give them a slight appreciation fow what they put up with.

It’s really too bad that there had to be a female officer trying to subdue the guy.

In my book, taze him.
