    Good Day Sir,
    Mr. Humphries I am applying for the job that you are offering. I have limited skills, but a very strong work ethic, never late to a job and always in a good mood. Sadly I can only afford to pay you the small sum of 8 pounds an hour for the job. But tell me when to start and I will be there with bells. Look forward to hearing from you soon!!!

    In Christ,

      I have gladly added your name to the list of applicants. If you are the lucky candidate I expect we will be sharing the same office.

      All the Best,

    Sounds like you might need a Gurkha Clerk. Perhaps you might post this with the Brigade of Gurkhas. Try
