A business owner is telling 'snowflakes' not to apply for a job opening at his company, claiming those who are down for 'politically incorrect banter' will get ahead.
Trevor Shore is on the lookout for part-time workers to join his fleet of drivers at coach company Dekkabus in Poole, Dorset.
In a bid to find the 'right' candidates for the job, Mr Shore shared an ad on Facebook listing a number of requirements.
As well as saying 'Egos get crushed on arrival at Dekkabus' and 'If you know it all, then you're far too good for us', the post says: "If you can put up with politically incorrect banter, then you'll fit in nicely."
It adds: "Snowflake Millennials / Social Justice Warriors - this is not the job for you."
Another set of criteria states that Dekkabus 'doesn't recognise the Unions'. Hmm, any takers?...
The 62-year-old shared the ad, penned by his compliance officer cousin Mark Self, on social media to reflect the company's 'fun' nature.
Shore said: "Mark and I really can't be doing with this PC world that we live in, especially me because I'm old school.
"I've done quite a lot in my life - worked on the railways, buses and coaches - we used to have loads and loads of fun at work on the railways.
"The things we used to do and say, you can't do now as you'd get the sack or be disciplined.
"You watch Coronation Street and at the end it says, 'If you've been affected by this please phone this number.'
"You might as well stay indoors, brick up your houses and not go out because if you go out the front door you might see something that upsets you and that might offend you. It's just got too much.
"We're a fun company and we wanted to get that across to people in the job ad."
As for job ad author Mark, 44, he claims they had a 'couple of 18-year-olds complain, claiming it was inappropriate', but said the vast majority of people 'loved it'.
"We mentioned people needing to be able to put up with politically incorrect banter as it's a way of saying we need someone up for a laugh," he said.
"We also need a good people person who has the ability to talk to the road sweeper who effs and jeffs and also Mrs Jones from the fine arts society.
"Being a coach driver is a totally different beast to being a bus driver, a coach driver has to be all sorts of things - they have to be flexible, be an entertainer and a cleaner...
"We are in no way politically correct. We're just a fun company to work for, it doesn't seem that people have fun anymore."
Despite the controversial approach, a number of people praised the post, with one writing: "If all driver recruitment adverts were like this the industry wouldn't be short of drivers!"
So, if this sounds like a bit of you, apply today. But before you do, perhaps take into consideration the meaning of political correctness: "The avoidance of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalise, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against."
