'Please Feel Free to Fucking Contact Me': the Worst Cover Letter of All Time

It's hard out there for job-seekers, we know. How can you stand out in a crowd? How do you impress an employer? What's the best way to communicate your skills and your passions? Here's our advice: don't write a cover letter that ends with the words "thanks cunt!"

A tipster working at a Houston-based creative agency emailed us this missive from the front lines this afternoon. There's a lot of hyperbole out there on the internet, but this is, actually the worst cover letter of all timeā€”not only is it profane, poorly punctuated and rude, the applicant didn't even include her resume or writing samples. (Even if your job-hunting strategy involves calling prospective employers "cunt," you have to pay attention to little details like that.)

Good morning [REDACTED],

Attached is my resume, along with a few writing samples. If you have any questions, please feel free to fucking contact me at [REDACTED]. And if you dont im gonna be fucking pissed!! So come on stop bullshitting and call me ;)
Thanks Cunt!

We emailed the letter's author (who had never met our tipster, or any of her coworkers) to find out what happened. (Our guess: a jokey draft that was never supposed to be sent in the first place.) Here's the original screenshot:
