The Job Hunter Diaries II – True Tales of Rejection

Rejection comes in all forms.

People get rejected all the time! Seriously its no biggie… kind of like –

– standing by a puddle and a bus drives by – soaked and walking for another mile – (that happened to me in Oxford, England, where it is a finable offense… but some has to care. They didn’t.)

– spinning a rock out from under the weed wacker and it hits you in the shin so hard it leaves a welt for 3 days.

– receiving  my first official rejection letter the other day from… Highlights magazine! I’ve been submitting things over the summer, and I have to say that it felt very official to get professionally rejected.

– asking this really cute guy if he wanted to get a bite to eat later and he said he couldn’t because he had to go mole hunting! Seriously, time with a beautiful, blonde (that would be me) or dropping flaming cyanide sticks on moles… tough choice.

Regardless of our sense of bravery… rejection still doesn’t feel very good. 

So below I have attached my official STARBUCKS rejection notice – Enjoy
