So, a bunch of smart people in Silicon Valley need some roommates. So, they posted this absurd advertisement looking for new roommates. Now, I know nothing about laws regarding roommates in California, but I do know I be very hesitant to hire anyone who lives in that house-especially in a management position. If they currently worked for me, I’d be having a long talk about diversity. Not skin color-I’m sure they are all on board with that-but with thought and personality.
Here are their requirements:
- Have a top-class degree or job with a strong math/science requirement
- Exercise at least 15 hours in a normal week
- Commute by car less than 20% of the time (Bicycle commuter!)
- Prefer organized systems and common rules
- Like petting dogs
Okay, let’s leave aside the fact that I don’t know a soul who exercises 15 hours a week, but I’ll consider that there are such people who hold jobs and manage to do more than two hours of exercise a day. If they do commute via bike, then that undoubtedly counts towards the two hours. The dog thing makes sense if there are dogs already living there-you don’t want someone who doesn’t like dogs moving in.
