"Yeah. You know he was trying to move on, he had a job interview. I saw the resume, it was a terrible resume. He mentioned prison and in special skills he said 'keeping it real', but... he was trying." -The Heat

Well actually, putting a couple funny things in your resume can sometimes work! My teacher's friend did that and got an interview at Lego. Sometimes the employer is so tired from looking at 100 cliche resumes, that a resume with some humour really stands out.

I saw people cooking meth in Breaking Bad so maybe that will work too! Actually that could work... Give me a couple of hours while I test this theory out.

The son knew. The son didn't get pranked or end up a victim of “damn auto correct". He intentionally put it there. And the dad isn't required to check his resume either at any age. If that's what you meant.

It would be reasonable thing to do if the son is young and not able to fully comprehend what he's doing. In this case, the son is sending in his résumé for a job application, which means he should be of an appropriate age and able to handle such things on his own. Just till what age do you think the parent should spoon-feed the son? I think it's ridiculous. The OP's son obviously is just very influenced by the movie.

No. No one gets a resume right first time. In fact, most people get help just compiling them, not just proofreading. It would be unreasonable to expect someone to get it perfectly right on their own.

If the son asked for it to be proofread, which he should have, because no one finds every spelling or punctuation error, OP probably would have caught this. I still get my dad to check mine, and my dad still gets my brother and I to check his, even though they're now just for positions within the company we're in.
