This is a question Not Getting the Job

Muns asks - Did you blag your way through a job interview, only to be caught out? Is your photography portfolio full of other peoples work? Did your potential employers google your name, before offering you a lucrative contract and discover something from your past you would rather forget? How did you fail to get the job?

My brother (salesman and occasional sales manager) has been tasked with narrowing down some piles of applications previously. His very scientific technique was to take half of the letters/cv's and drop them in the bin, thereby weeding out those applicant prone to 'bad luck'

I hope you haven't previously suggested you are capable of 'well written letters' and complained about 'poorly spelt bollocks' and then showed you don't know that the plural for CV doesn't require an apostrophe because then you'd look like a right prick.

When I say poorly spelt bollocks and hint at badly written letters I am talking about those who are apathetic about education and spell every other word wrong, using annoying text-speak and phonetic spelling. NOT the occasional slip up I make here because I am not proof-reading my generally okay English to impress you. You lot on here aren't half a bunch of pedantic and sarcastic fucks. I detect an aura of massive frustration combined with god awful pretension. I think I will stop writing here before I get dragged down into the world of pathetic nit-picking

I would argue that it does when using the acronymical form but let's not fall out over it ed that would just be nitpicking (or nit-picking according to Robert)
