I have a new favorite thing (I know it’s hard to keep up): after-the-fact rejection letters; like for jobs that I had literally forgotten that I applied for. For example, apparently I applied for a job at Macmillion and months, probably fucking years, later I got an email saying it wasn’t going to work out. Like yeah, thanks I gathered that.
The great thing about law firms is that you get an extra special letter on their stationary in the mail, like an invitation, or love letter, but it’s the opposite. And, on the top of the paper, the masthead has at least 5 million names for all of the partners. It’s like they wanted to specifically point out that these people are winners and you are not.
What exactly am I supposed to do with this new and valuable information? Write them back?
Thanks for the note!! I like never ever get mail so when I finally saw an envelope with my name on it I got super excited.
The truth is that, for the past ten months, I have just been waiting to hear from you, turning away millions of jobs in anticipation. I carry my phone with me everywhere like someone waiting for their non-committal boyfriend to call. Not only am I super fucking prepared for my mom to call for the hundredth time, but I would could have answered your call on the first ring if necessary. It's true I wouldn't never have considered waiting for the second ring so you think I have a life--because we both know I don't! HAHA
I am so glad you finally got in touch with me. It was pretty awesome to see what your stationary looks like because I really couldn't fathom what it could possibly have even resembled. Now I know. YES.
PS: Have you heard the new song by Rihanna? I totes love it.
