Best cover letter ever!

My buddy works for a certain governmental agency down in St Catherines, Ontario. Since all the students are getting out of school, he has been getting lots of resumes. This one struck him as standing out a little bit. What do you think? Arrogant? or just a creative way of trying to get a job?

I may risk sounding a bit arrogant and far from modest, but I am a widely talented, energetic, courteous, honest and creative individual that would be a fantastic asset to the COMPANY NAME HERE. I have a wide range of skills that would be suitable working in your organization, but most of all I’m a hard working and responsible young guy. You should probably hire me.

How To Mess With Crappy Customers – Phone Kill Switch

When I worked for this huge corporation at the desktop publisher desk, we used to have this guy who would come in, layout his lunch and use our courtesy phone to conduct business from.

Needless to say, this wasn’t right.

We kept asking him to leave, and he just kept coming back.

Eventually I got tired of it, and decided to do something about it.

Enter, the phone kill switch.

All I did was put a simple toggle switch inline with the phone line going to the courtesy phone.  Cut one of the wires for the phone line, put the switch in between it, then wire it all back up. Very simple, yet hours of fun.

Here’s a close up view of the switch.

Here it is all attached up to the wall.

So when he’d make a call I’d reach down, scratch my leg, and OOPS press the button. And he’d get disconnected.

I swear by the end of it he thought the phone was possessed and never came back!

Try it yourself!
