Welcome To The Real World  
I love reading nothired, simply because it confirms my thoughts that people are idiots. I'm amused by the snippets from resumes and cover letters that have people rambling on about situations that really don't need to be shared, or the people that obviously took a class in resume writing and so use every little trick (and come off as annoying and obnoxious)...but then, there are ones like this.

You may think "macro-speak" is funny, but there is a time and place for it, and applying for a job is not it. The fact that one would even consider it really bothers me. Just goes to show what we are encouraging, these days.

Wow that community just dropped the bar 3 notches for dumb this week.

I do think LOLspeak/Macrospeak is funny, but I agree. Anyone who can't type like a rational adult when applying for ANYTHING, whether it's a job, or a room for rent, or responding to some other kind of ad... deserves to be ignored.

Haha, I sent the Manjam resume to them, but all they reprinted was the little blurb from the objective, totally missing the remainder of the lolz :(

That’s definitely one of the most awesome blogs.

I can imagine a few rare jobs for which that cover letter might be appropriate, such as writing for some sort of geek humor web site.
