Dear Mr. Hoagland,
I am writing about your posting for a receptionist at your corporate office. I hope to make clear with this letter both my enthusiasm and expertise for recepting. You could say I am “receptive” to this job offer and that I really “need it”.
I have recently graduated from college where they gave me two diplomas because I did such a good job. I’ve maintained a GPA of at least a 7.8 since kindergarten. I have extensive volunteer experience from giving people my blood on the street whenever they needed it through a needle and tube kit I keep with me at all times. My touch has been known to heal.
My biggest weakness is that everywhere I go massive amounts of money fall from the sky and into the arms of me and everyone around me, and sometimes this can cause injury if too much money falls on the person. But then I touch them and they are ok.
I am probably one of the top five smartest people in the world, but I don’t mind using all of that genius just to be receptionist at your company, and I’ll never leave even if a higher paid position is offered because I have brand loyalty.
Please give me this job. Please.
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
