Following my ,"the worst CV in the world" blog I received a severe admonishment (HELP Benedict, is this a real word?) from the writer Benedict Le Gauche because I failed to mention where I happened across this gem. I added a PS to my blog to lead you, dear followers, through the process I took and asked Benedict if he was now content. I also sought his advice on how to spell the word discombuberated. He emailed back:
Ann I am not content. You got the CV from my site, not from the Metro's site, which doesn't have it but has a link to it. Mother tells me I shouldn't indulge these frissons of propriety and yet here I am 01:25 in the morning asking you to please link it to the original because I spent a time writing it and it connects to whole lot of other stuff that I wrote and it's not really much to ask that you link to the original site from which you cut and pasted it.
You f****** spell discombobulated like this DISCOMBOBULATED.
Yours with a frank-uncalled-for amount of snoot.
Calm down dear. You have to remember that you are communicating with a frail and, quite honestly, crazy 71.33 year old widow woman. Please forgive me. Oh! and by the way, in response to your request, here's the link to your site, http://curriculumvitiate.wordpress.com/. I admit that I was entirely in the wrong and hope that you aren't still discombobulated darling.
Having to print this makes me empathise with the editor of the Daily Mail when he compiles a list of apologies and retractions at the end of each day. Is this power or what? Oh sh*t, am I now in trouble with the Daily Mail too?! Lock me up!!
