No, absolutely seriously.
We have a copywriter position opening up here at the ad agency I call home every day. The Craigslist ad went up, the applications came in and, seriously, one of the applications contained a cover letter…and I quote:
“It’s hard for me to take myself seriously as I sit here and write this in my panties.”
I am not making this up.
And they’ll wonder why they didn’t get the job.
