One lesson they don’t teach in school is to be careful what you wish for. One teenager learned this the hard way when she asked her dad to help write her resume.
Lauren Moore is a 16-year-old in England, awaiting her GCSE test results. GCSE stands for “General Certificate of Secondary Education” and it’s an academic qualification, generally taken in a number of subjects by pupils in secondary education in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
It’s a stressful week for teens over there, as they await their scores, and Lauren’s dad didn’t exactly help with his funny, but brutal, assessment of her daughter’s skills.
“Trying to get on my good side by being unfunny the weirdo,” the teen said after images of the resume went viral on Twitter.

Her tweet of the resume has nearly 700 retweets and over 2,500 likes as people laugh, and cringe, at her dad’s loving (?) takedown of his teen daughter’s qualifications.
He broke the resume down into four sections – qualifications, work experience, voluntary work, and hobbies – and each more brutal than the last.
He predicts low scores on her GCSE exams, lists “getting on her father’s tits,” “not listening,” and “browsing Facebook” under her “work experience” and sums it all up by calling her a “typical 16 year old” who “couldn’t give a fuck.”
Points for honesty, I guess? And points to Lauren for having the guts to post the resume online, where her friends are finding it hilarious.
Hopefully any potential employers don’t catch wind of it, or at least have a good sense of humor.
