Maybe if I used Stell's resume I might have more success. . . . I should at least try the objective out. I'm always a fan of entropy in the workplace

To whom it may concern,
I am looking for an experienced and motivated individual who can serve as an on-call Cutie Pie. You're resume is quite impressive. Would you be interested in a part time position? Is commuting a problem?
Thank you for your time,
Jenae
