I hate these dickheads that demand you include a photo of yourself when you apply for a job. Wankers. It's like asking you what religion you are or if they can have a sample of your DNA.
place within us love that truly gives, tenderness that truly unites, self-offering that tells the truth and does not deceive, forgiveness that truly receives, loving physical union that welcomes

Funny story about that. A language school here once got a guy from America to come over and work, without asking for his photo. He was half javanese, half anglo, they didn't know that, but he had spent his whole life in america. Anyway they were waiting for him at the airport when this dark, Javanese looking guy came up to them and said 'hi'. They apparently gave him a look, something like 'fuck off coolie, who the hell are you' when he said 'I'm Terry', and then they realised he was their man. After that they always asked for a photo first before flight booking.
