How not to get a job

August 7th, 2007 (05:09 pm)

current location: London
current mood: stressed

So I haven't been doing much, that is anything, online lately.  There's a simple reason for that, which is that I am currently a gigantic ball of stress and panic, and the simple thought of writing anything is more than a little terrifying (seriously - even diary entries are causing me pain).  But, in an attempt to relieve the boredom and terror of unsuccessful job applications, I penned this little piece this afternoon:

Dear London Duck Tours,

I like ducks.  I also like getting very wet.  I can waffle about almost anything for a very long time, and I can be semi-amusing while doing so.  I almost never become impatient with large groups of obnoxious people, and I have mastered the art of staring giggling schoolgirls into submission.  I rarely, if ever, become bored in situations of complete tedium, and I am kind - mostly - to puppies.  I hope you will consider me for the position of tour guide.


Wouldn't you hire me after that?  I'd say it's much more interesting than most speculative letters.

Lol, that letter! :)

I'm sorry to hear that things have been stressful for you! I was getting a bit worried, as I haven't heard from you in a while. (And mails don't seem to be getting through ... a few have bounced.)
