Sounds like you walk like a jazz playing wolf from a Tex Avery cartoon.

I think I am batting 0 for every cultural reference you have ever made in a post responding to me!

My soon-to-be boss asked me to send over a writing sample this afternoon. I attached the file, clicked send, and Gmail lagged for a second. The message went through but without the attachment. Now I look like an idiot before even starting the job. I obsess shit like this and it is making me furious.

Maybe he doesn't plan to actually read it so he won't notice (you already have the job anyways!)

I once took an art class that had some required papers. It was a studio class but I think there were some writing requirements since it counted as a part of our core curriculum (I really didn't think the teacher actually cared about anything except the art we made). I had written the first 2 out of 3 papers that quarter but this one just completely slipped my mind and I had zero time.
Took a word document, saved it, opened the file in a text editor (word is a binary format so this doesn't work) and just deleted a few random sections and added random characters in others. Saved it and emailed it in...

Figured this would buy me a little time to finish my finals and I could just write it over break whenever the professor emailed me to say he couldn't open it (it was realistically maybe a 2-3 hour item, I just hadn't had time).

Dude never said a thing and I got an A on the paper and for the class icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Professional-level jobs that require filling out applications. I have a fucking advanced degree, a résumé I've pored over, and a great cover letter, and you want me to fill out an application that talks about which elementary school I attended? Seriously?

Fuck you, HR.

OK, don't send it, professor. We probably weren't going to hire you anyway, so fuck off.
