Letter by a Job Applicant

Re-hire Me, Please

September 20, 2011
To all my employers:
Yes, I know now that I applied for this position with too little experience and even less competence.  And I know that my performance has been a disappointment to a lot of you… okay, most of you. 
But it is with hope, bordering on great confidence, that I can now assure you:  Not only have I learned a lot from my mistakes, there are going to be improvements – big ones. They are coming any day now. 
Every week or so, I am learning a lot more. 
Yes, I know that 31 months and 3 weeks on the job was a long time to wait for improvement, but when you think about it… it really was only 26 months when adjusted for my training and vacations. 
Now that I am finally ready, I really need another couple of years, at least, to begin to deliver some improved results…and improve my resumé.
So please rehire me when my contract runs out.  You probably won’t be sorry.
Sincerely yours,
BO did not write the above, just as he did not write his two autobiographies. It is not for nothing that he’s known as the Teleprompter POTUS.

Let me tell you a short story. I have been brewing beer and wines for over 20 years and have entered and recieved many acclaims from my peers. I have the ribbons, ect to prove it…Whoopee No realy BFD. At one event on neumerous occasions (yearly for about 3 years) I came to know a public defender in Alameda County, I can’t remember his name, nor did I want to. This guy was a party animal (ape) to be more descriptive. He’d get sloppy drunk and was a druggie to boot. Just the kind of guy you wanted to stay… Read more »
