This 6 Year Old Is Going Places…In About 10 Years
How many times have you hear about a great job? It’s perfect for you. As a matter of fact…it might even be your dream job. So you polish up your resume, send it off, maybe even follow up with a phone call. And then you wait. Days turn into weeks. Suddenly a month has gone by…and still nothing. You realize, odds are they tossed your resume into the trash…along with your hopes and dreams. Trust me, I know the pain. I’ve felt it more times than you can even imagine.
Well, not this kid. He’s going places…in another decade or so. Legoland theme park recently posted a job opening for a part-time model builder. One of the people who applied was a six year-old kid named Stanley Bolland. He sent them a handwritten letter that said, “Dear Sir [or] Madam. I am 6 years old, and I love Lego. I have a box of it. I hide my Lego, so my brother can’t get it. I am the man for the job, because I have lots of EXPERIENCE. Love, Stanley.”
By the way…if you’re wondering why he wrote “Lego” instead of “Legos,” Stanley lives in London, England…that’s the plural form most people use in the U.K. And according to the company, “Legos” is wrong. They prefer “Lego bricks.” Anyway, someone at Legoland wrote back and said he’ll be perfect for the job once he finishes school.
So he’s got a while to wait. But they brought Stanley to Legoland for a personal tour.
He even got to hang out with one of the builders while they walked around the park doing repairs. Even though he didn’t get the job, he was pretty happy. And get this…
they also said they’ll hang on to his application, and check back with him when he’s a little older.
