Dear Applicant,

Please stop typing your name in all-caps or all-lowercase when you fill out a form. I realize how much you want to try to feel unique in this increasingly faceless digital world. I get it. Here's the problem: Whenever your data is read by an actual person—and believe me, the jobs of thousands of people entail eyeballing long lists of data for formatting problems and errors—your "unique" typing does not make you look cute. It makes you a nuisance. Some underpaid office worker has to stop and make a decision about correcting you in the computer. You are contributing to her eye fatigue and frustration. It will not hurt you to move one step up the ladder of maturity. Just type your name correctly. Then go get all the tattoos you want.
