I’d be a perfect fit for this role despite applying out of desperation

‘Receptionist wanted IMMEDIATELY for a small but extremely busy taxi firm. MUST be able to work nights, weekends, and everything in between. Benefits include the ability to work as much overtime as you wish and occasional staff drinks where the middle-aged taxi drivers will pay copious amounts of attention to you.’

I promise that I will devote all of my time and energy to your company and treat this role as my sole purpose for living. I can guarantee that I will stick at this role for the next 20 years and will absolutely NOT hand in my notice as soon as the job market improves.
