Source – A teenage father with ‘DEVAST8’ tattooed across his face is ‘waiting for the right job offer’ after his desperate plea for work went viral – and he has revealed he will be getting the jailhouse ink lasered off.
Mark Cropp, 19, from New Zealand, took to social media on Wednesday afternoon to beg someone to look past his criminal convictions and heavily-tattooed face and give him a chance at work.
Within hours he had been inundated with job offers and said he had ‘stopped counting when he reached 45’.
But he told Daily Mail Australia he still hadn’t ‘done a day’s work’.
‘I am just waiting for the right one to come about,’ he said.
Some of the jobs required him to have his own car – he clarified – but he will need help getting to the work site.
‘Until I get my first paycheck and get a car I won’t be able to get myself around,’ he said.
The former criminal revealed he would be getting the artwork – designed by his brother after a night of drinking home brew in jail – removed as soon as possible.
Classic. Sounds like a kid who doesn’t want a job. What have we done to kids? Entitled? Yes. Self Centered? You bet.
There’s a serious issue with someone that complains that he can’t get work because of a prison tattoo on his face then decides he doesn’t want any jobs offered because they’re beneath him.
At least he knows what he wants and is willing to wait for it. Mad respect for the douche that knows more than everyone else about work. Makes me think I’ve got it all wrong.
