This is a question Where Did It All Go Wrong?

Woocfot asks: Tell us all about that turning point in your life when it started going downhill. Yeah, that drunken conversation with my dad when he suggested I become a civil servant. Dammit, I could have been an astronaut

I sent a cv for a job last week. I re-read it again today and as a placeholder in the skills section I'd written "I once fucked a puppy" until I could think of a final one to round it out
then forgotten to replace it.
I've not heard back from them yet.
It's a nice job and would allow me to work in a country I want to live. Maybe this will be where it all went wrong.

Well, look at it from their point of view - they're considering employing someone who either likes sex with animals, or is careless and forgetful.
Depending on the job, one or both of these might be an advantage.

Well if you get an interview
you'll have to answer the obvious question. Be original, fortune favours the brave.

Mrs Vagabond has recently re-entered work after being made redundant.
I was in charge of proofing her CV, and missed "Proofreading and MSWrod skills" on at one point, which went out to about five people.

But yours is waay better.

I used to have a CV which I'd written in MS Word.
It took me quite a while before I discovered that the bullet points appeared on a Mac as little love hearts.
