Quotes from a real cover letter

Today I had the pleasure of reading a very enjoyable cover letter. This letter was sent to us in application for a real job. Really. Some quotes from the letter are as follows:

"Accounting is far more than just numbers on a page to me. It is a way of life."
"My sister and I are 13 months apart. My mother said it was like having twins."
"My parents got divorced when I was 3 years old. They have both gotten remarried to different spouses."
"College has times that are challenging."
"This drive is an internal feeling that one feels. They may not even know where it is coming from, but it comes from them."
"I want to show you that I love you."
"Basically, I want both of us to be at the same level, regarding life, goals, and marriage."

Yes, again, this was for real. I can almost guarantee they accidentally sent over their cover letter for an online dating site. But however this blessed miracle occurred, I don't really care. I'm just glad it was there to brighten my day today.

Oh my goodness, you're kidding me. That is excellent! Did he get the job?

Rachel. If you got that as an application for a job would you give him a job? He didn't even get an interview.
