To whom it may concern:

I am interested in the position advertised on Craigslist. I know I am over qualified mentally for the position but because I don’t have the experience or education behind me. I cannot submit my resume to be your new boss.

So I am interested in this job because I need to pay my bills and you should be glad because really I once I learn what I am doing I will do the work far too quickly and be bored to tears and spend my time playing Mine Sweeper, Free Cell and Reversi while you’re not looking, of course.

But if, for at least the first six months that I can stomach your idiocy, you think my skills and qualifications meet your need feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

  1. Wow. I find CL to be filled with that. In fact, the job I’m at now, my boss is so frazzled it’s ridiculous.
