Would you hire a homeless person with a resume?

Not using comic sans also a plus.

Today from the Department of Horatio Algerism, LAist reports a homeless man walks around LA handing out his resume in an attempt to get off the streets. And save for a few errors, it’s in not-too-shabby shape (we’ve certainly seen worse, from people who presumably have homes). He’s a native New Yorker, too. LAist (that’s Gothamist’s smoggy, Lakers-rooting cousin) says others have spotted similar incidents, including someone¬†in Santa Monica who has a sign saying something like “Not looking for a handout. Hire me! Resume ready.” Anyone seen this kind of thing in New York? (Or maybe our shelters are just too nice?) What do you make of it? Full resume below.
