When applying for a job, if you put a comment on your resume like "CHECK ON THIS", make sure you remove it before you submit your resume. Instead of using capital letters on it, highlight it a different colour, this makes it harder to miss.
Also, if you have to apply for your own job, don't get your boss's name wrong on the cover letter.
On a side-note, I might be looking for a new job soon....
And yesterday's advice should have mentioned Patrick Hernadez, he's the one who sings Born to Be Alive.
