It’s always a great day when you get a job. Maybe you hit the bar for a few celebratory drinks, or perhaps you treat yourself to a steak dinner. But if you’ve just been hired at Weatherproof Roofing in Castle Rock, Colorado, you might treat yourself to something else: ammo.
Why? Because Weatherproof Roofing is giving away free AR-15s to new employees.
“We have four sales positions that we’ve got to get filled ASAP,” owner James Webb told Denver’s KDVR, a FOX affiliate.
But there’s a catch. To become eligible for the free weapon, new sales associates must first pass a background check. Then, because nothing in this world is actually free, they have to land 10 new roofing jobs for the company.
That, however, shouldn’t be a problem. Weatherproof Roofing is currently in the midst of one of its busiest seasons yet, all thanks to a recently launched marketing campaign — called “Get a Roof, Get a Gun” — that advertises free AR-15s for new customers.
“We just don’t have the staff to keep up with it,” Webb said. “So now we’re giving it another shot with ‘Get a Job, Get a Gun.’”
Whether or not the tactic will be equally successful in wrangling new sales associates remains to be seen, but all indicators point to yes, it absolutely will be.
“[If] they’ll give out an AR-15, I’ll work for anybody,” Tyler Carter of Colorado Springs told KDVR.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
