'Nother Rejection

Okay, I've passed the point where rejection even hurts. With decades, hell it feels like centuries (!), of rejections from attempts to get work, I now just laugh.

The other day a letter came out from a small district in Central California. Desperate for someone to fill in on an alternative principal position, they sent the word out..."Please, just relieve us for a couple of weeks...we need help."

I stepped up. With more than enough qualifications and willing to start immediately.

Today, I went to the mailbox and received their response.

Dear Cece:

POS Unified School District sincerely thanks you for your interest. The time and effort that you have expended in the application process is sincerely appreciated. Although I regret to inform you that you were not selected for the POS Principal position with our district at this time, please be assured that you were an excellent candidate, which made the selection difficult.

The POS Unified School District is fortunate to have many highly qualified applicants, such as you, apply for our vacancies. We hope that you will continue your interest in our District.

Thank you again for your time and interest. Please accept my best wishes for continued success in your professional endeavors.

Of course, this letter would carry more weight if it weren't (verbatim) the same as about 100 other rejection letters from this last year.
