I wonder what the wife thinks ...

I work in recruitment. I received a CV today which had this in the 'interests' section;

To relax, I join a group of friends in a team we have formed for on-line combat gaming. We are able to link-up and communicate through headsets, employing tactical skills and simulated assault and combat craft. This enables me to socialize, exercise my reflexes and strengthen team skills, whilst still being present to support my wife in caring for our baby daughter.

Did anyone else burst out laughing at the 'whilst still being present to support my wife in caring for our baby daughter' part?

I can't even chew gum and care for the kids at the same time. What a loser.

The poor wife

One of my sons-in-law indulges in on-line combat gaming. He IS present in the home....but only in body. In every other respect he's in a different world.

I feel sorry for his wife!

I loved the complicated details in his virtual pursuit whilst his flesh and blood companions had no such information! ROTFL

PMSL Please please please make him blog - we HAVE to know more! In fact, can we just see the rest of his CV, with his e-mail address, and we'll beg him ourselves!

Oh my gosh.
Who is he kidding?
That made me laugh so much, that my little girl had to ask why?
Definitely delusional.

He's going to need those good reflexes when she tosses him the baby and say's, "Your turn!"
