‘Unusual’ application costs $500

FRUSTRATION at the job-search process reached boiling point for Graham Miles Anderson last month.

The 25-year-old father was charged with being a public nuisance after losing his temper during an appointment at an employment agency.

He pleaded guilty in the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court and told the magistrate he became frustrated after a staff member seemed unwilling to schedule his appointments around school pick-up times.

Prosecutor Constable Steve Lord said Anderson became aggressive and used obscene language towards a female staff member. He had to be escorted from the premises.

Magistrate Barrie Barrett fined Anderson $500.

“It seems a most unusual way for someone to apply for a job,” he said.
