Hello. I'd like to work for you. But I don't know how to approach you.

People who receive unsolicited "I'd love to work for you, here's my portfolio" type emails.
What gets your goat about them, what sparks your interest when you receive them?

I've found a few companies I'd love to work for and I (think I) have a complementary skill / creative set. I just don't want to piss them off, be ignored due to blandness or come across as a total weirdo when I approach them to try and work for them.
I'm really rubbish at this sort of thing, I don't really know how to go about approaching companies cold in the vain hope that they like what I do especially when I am less than complementary about my own skills.
Do you have advice, success stories, list of dos and don't that can inspire my task?
