In a crowded job market, it’s important to make sure your application materials stand out from the crowd so you’ll be considered a memorable candidate. This can include the use of power verbs and listing awards and achievements.

A Texas man recently found out that while attempting to be considered memorable, one thing you’ll want to steer away from is sending a photo of your penis to potential employers. The Dallas Observer reports.

A caseworker at Texas Workforce Solutions, a state run agency that coordinates a network of potential employers, was shocked to find a photo of a client’s penis in her email along with his job application. The 25-year-old caseworker notified police, who identified the culprit and slapped him with a ticket for "obscene display or distribution."

According to, obscene display or distribution is defined as:

Intentionally or knowingly displaying or distributing obscene materials with reckless disregard for whether a person is present who will be offended or alarmed.

This offense is a Class C misdemeanor and carries with it a fine of up to $500

A spokesman for local police confirmed the man who sent the email was still unemployed.

’I think I know why he can’t find a job,’ he said.
