Ask McFartnuggets: “I Accidentally Sent The Wrong File With a Job Application What Do I Do?”

Dear McFartnuggets: 
I’ve been applying to a ton of jobs lately and so I’ve been entering job applications online several at a time to improve my chances. Last night I was a little drunk and my finger slipped when I was attaching my resume and instead I accidentally clicked the wrong file in my computer and sent over a .doc file of an erotic short story I’ve been working on. It’s not even like it’s a writing job either, it’s for a law firm. What do I do? Do I call them and tell them not to open it? I really embarrassed and worried now. It was the perfect job for me all my qualifications and experience were perfectly suited for it. Now they’re going to read my erotic Chewbacca fan fiction and spread it all around the office! That’s personal stuff! -- Cecilia from Dallas, Texas

Dear Cecilia:
Well, to be honest you should probably just pretend like it never happened. I hope you have your stories saved in another folder far away from your resumes and cover letters. I would keep those as far apart as possible. I wouldn’t even contact them about it. It’s entirely possible they don’t even look at your resume at all so they may never read your story. I’ve had a few close calls with that an uploading porn to a job interview site. You always want to double check everything before you make that final click. Triple check if you have to. This is your life you’re dealing with here. Good luck!

This reminds me of the time I accidentally sent a job a .zip file of over 23,000+ vintage nude photos. Eh, ya live and learn!
