Let's be honest here, Haden is not describing you. When you walk into a room, it not only doesn't light up. It feels like the entire North American power grid has gone down.

It really breaks your heart, doesn't it? It just makes me sad to think that I'm living in a world where not everyone is enjoying the non-stop joy that comes from spending days, weeks, years and decades trapped in a soul-killing office full of annoying co-workers and abusive supervisors.

Even if the position is looking more and more like your nightmare job, you may still want to point out why you are the perfect fit. Simply explain that "no one else is desperate enough to take a job this terrible, and if you don't hire me, I'm going to hold my breath until my face turns red."
