Life Tilt

Chad popped up in IM recently requesting that I teach him how to roach in a tournament. I was around 40 of 41 in $5k (36 paid) and finally took a bad beat to finish 11th. Sadly despite being able to consistently roach well into money and occaisonally win from a small stacked position I can't explain how I pick my spots. I of course tried to use occaison to pick Chad's brain on how to run deep for big money.

Sadly I learned people skillz.

Frustrated in my job search I again contacted a company I applied with 2 weeks ago. From job description it is a job I did 10 years ago but using communication standards I have designed equipment for recently. My cover letter (email) read:

"I applied before, you have not responded and sadly I am a perfect fit for the opening described. I used to do the same job for the competitor that always kicked your ass in sales

I am beginning to understand what led to you losing out competitively.

Thank you for considering me for HW Design position you have posted on web-site,

Bayne"

I'm surprised you didn't have the CEO calling you back 5 seconds after hitting send.

I'm with Drizz.

Although you can be sure that it probably never got passed the hands of some HR nazi.

Keep your head forward and your chin up.

You are my hero.

That is the kind of cover letter that should get attention. Seriously. They should want to bring you in to see not only if you did kick their ass but if you are good enough to give an ass kicking back.
