    I spent about 4 hours the other night editing my CV, making it spaced nice, sorting out all the fonts so it was readable... trying to make it pleasing to the eye yet not overwhelming.

    Then i sent it to everyone ... absolutly everyone i could think of... then the fun thing happens, i get an email from one person saying "ive been trying to contact you the last few days, apparently the mobile number you provided is incorrect".

    Fun thing is ... i typed it out wrong, clever eh? I set up an auto replacer in my word prog (like, if you type "Progrma" it auto corrects to program) cause i kept getting the last number wrong ... i typed THAT part wrong, everything ive printed or edited in the last week has had its number changed to an incorrect one... clever eh?

    I kept typing "123 123" when the number was like .. "123 132" every time, so i made the word program register "123 123" as a mistake, and auto replace with "123 123" ... i read the instructions wrong ... im clever lol.

    Luck's got nothing to do with it, i just screw up a lot.

    Its like people who say "ive been unemployed 35 years, its just bad luck"... my bad luck is due to the stupid stuff i do ... like leave big heavy books on slippery metal angled sides leading into a pool of filty water underneath an open window, in this case i shoulda payed more attention proof reading.

    Hmm, at least i know my phone number ends in 521 now, and not 512.
