I was laid off from my day job recently. Not much to say about that, other than that maybe the agencies and graduate professors that I'm always trying to earn money from should tell the government that they are actually in the Iraq "rebuilding" business rather than the wildlife conservation business. Then we'd all be driving solid-gold Hummers down those backroads and screw the mileage forms, by Jiminy.
Anyway, I just had a minor little gripe regarding a job rejection letter I got today. I didn't expect to get the job, but when I opened the e-mail, I was told to refer to the attachment. Well, that's good news, right? If I didn't get the job, they'd just say so, right? No, they had to say it on official letterhead, apparently. And the little letter actually included the sentence, "We had many applicants and are pleased that we have filled the position." Well, good for y'all. Why don't you just send me a singing telegram while you're at it?
