Why I shouldn’t think too much

So I’ve been thinking. A lot. Too much really. And this is the conclusion I’ve come to:

If we lived in a world where reincarnation was a proven science, and we had laws that required you to list all of your previous existences on you résumé when you applied for a job, don’t you think that having say, Adolph Hitler, or Joseph Stalin would be a bit of a red flag to certain employers?

I don’t know about you, but if I were Adolph Hitler in a previous life, and I had to list that on my résumé, or face a fine of up to $10 or possibly get a verbal warning from a low level security guard, I’d probably risk it and leave Hitler off of my résumé. Sure, it would be nice to think that we’d live in a world where people wouldn’t judge you so much on your past lives, but let’s be realistic. It’s human nature to think less of a person that was responsible for the deaths of millions of people in a previous life. Who’s to say they won’t try it again?

Sure, it would be nice to have been a John Lennon, or maybe a Gandhi on your résumé of previous lives, but that’s just the dark side of reincarnation that nobody wants to talk about. The fact of the matter is that someone has to have been Hitler in a previous life.

I hope you’ve all learned a valuable lesson today about how to properly fill out your résumé.

i'd like to think that in a former life i was some kind of Egyptian royalty, but the truth is that i probably was something more like a chambermaid.
