AG: Is that appropriate?

The Interviewer: I think I have lunch in my teeth.

AG: Wow.

The Interviewer: ANYWAY, yeah, this looks great, and I will be in touch!

5 Months Later….


Hey there buddy.  I wanted to drop a note and thank you for applying to proof and edit my blog.

I did just hire someone for the position, five months after the fact. But why are you surprised, I was totally late to the interview!

My life is very important.

Thanks again, I remember what it was like reading those Playbill ads myself, back in the day when I was just a young theatrical whippersnapper like yourself.    Ah, those were the days, my friend. I thought they’d never end.

But they did and now I’m too important to even be on time for an interview. 

Good luck. You’ll need it.

Wait, who are you?

I am completely unprofessional!

Love always,


Oh how EMBARRASSING I meant that for my lover!  Ah, isn’t life funny? 

Well, I hope you can forgive me and not try to seek revenge by completely re-writing this experience and posting it on a BLOG or something hahahaha.

That would be…that would be totally ironic.



I didn’t touch the first sentence of that rejection letter. Just wanted to let you all know!

    OMG, how did you know my pet office peeve, namely an interviewer who thinks it’s just fine to waste your time and act completely unprofessional whereas if you arrive one millisecond late or with one tiny hair out of place, boom, they don’t pick you? ARGH! And that first line of your rejection letter? I think I’m gonna have to echo MPLanglinais above me… Just wow.

  3. Kelly Gamble says:

    If he’s going to call you ‘buddy’ you should call him Skipper.

  4. April Denton says:

    Wow! The nerve of some people.

  5. Harnew says:

    Incredible! Laughed the whole way.

  6. At what point in someone’s professional life is itdeemed okay to start behaving like an ass?

  7. Wow. I laughed, but then I threw up a little in my mouth…who are these characters and what exactly made them think they are dangerous? Classic blog, classically lame reject-er.

    Why are some people even allowed to be interviewers?
