      @kaycee… when you are worn out by that stubborn applicant; the 50th of them; when you can’t go further; when hope seems lost; and help seems far; I’ll be a shoulder; where you can lean on; for only 50 dollars per applicant; for the last 2500 applicants. It’s called YOU WIN, I WIN. (I’m banking on you to cinch that contract)
      Yours faithfully
