Mr. Randy Clippatoh

Randy's Elderly Toenail Clipping Service

4123 Fungus Avenue

Ft. Smelly, IN 58674

Dear Mr. Randy Clippatoh;

I was talking to my grandmother the other day and noticed that her toenails were freshly cut. She told me that you were looking for someone to cut the toenails of the elderly in Ft. Smelly. If that position is still open, I am quite interested in applying for the job.

I graduated last year from We Are Two Gullible University in Idiot City, Indiana. I was in the top fifty of my class of fifty-three students. I am now ready to go out into the real world and get a satisfying job. I have tons of experience that will help me in the toenail clipping business. When I was in middle school, I volunteered at We'll Drop Your Groceries For You. We delivered plenty of groceries for the old people, but we usually did not make it to the refrigerator. Throughout my high school years, I was in the Say Hello to the Older Than Dirt People. I'm sure they appreciated the brief company, though they looked confused at the quick exchange. When I was still in college, I worked part time at We Make Your Toes Approachable. I really enjoyed the couple weeks I was allowed t work there. I now rarely scream in disgust when I see bare feet, and I can sometimes keep my mouth closed when I want to voice my opinions. I can work hard when I want to. I am often told that I am special. I always listen to what my superiors say. These qualities make me the perfect candidate for the job.

I am really interested in interviewing for the position of an elderly toenail clipper. Please feel free to contact me at 545-412-3195, or email me at I look forward to hearing from you.


Ida Knoh.

The author's comments:
For English class, we had to pick an unappealing job and create a resume and cover letter for it. I thought they turned out pretty funny, so here's mine.

If you'd like an easy laugh, then take a few minutes and read a bit of this.
