Today, I sent a cover letter to a potential employer. In the letter, I talked about my great attention to detail, my strong ability to focus, and my stellar writing skills. After hitting send, I reread the letter and noticed that I typed my name "B-R-A-I-N." My name is Brian. FML

Just say it's your nickname or something. If you wrote about how intelligent you are, "Brain" might be appropriate...

Ummm that's why you read your letters before you send it.... you deserved that.

His new nickname should be Bad luck Brian

You mean Bad luck Brain?

Just say it was a joke, no big deal.

You could shorten this FML by a lot... here.. "I can't spell my own name. FML" Or... "I'm too lazy to proofread my own resume but I still think I'm going to get hired. FML"

#3 wins. No other comments are needed.

wasn't there an fml just like this not too long ago...

If he doesn't reply, obviously he's not pondering what you're pondering.

lol That sucks. :[ I've done something before where I called a man "Miss" when addressing the letter. Oops. We all make little mistakes like that. ;[

#3 FTW! Always always always proof read shit like that before you send it. Especially when it can mean the difference between getting a job and not.
