    4 letters in the mail.

    1- Rejection for a job (phone screening interview had gone well...or at least i thought so)

    1- Rejection for a job (they write these rejection letters so nicely... you wonder -from how THEY put it- why I wasn't hired as department chair)

    1- My introduction letter and brochure were sent back to me with a note- pretty well saying- 'that's not the way you DO it! Apply ONLY on-line. We don't want any "MATERIALS" cluttering our desks.' OUCH! Bet my on-line application is in the virtual dumpster there.

    1- From a school I sub at. A check was never cashed-shall we send you another? (God has a sense of humor!)

    I'm sorry that all happened in one day; the brochure and intro letter being sent back to you seems particularly rough. Hopefully, this is all your bad news for a little while.

    why would you mail in your application if they want only online applications?

    I agree with the ice cream. If i were you i'd go get a huge tub of ice cream (something with chunks of chocolate in it or cookie dough) and watch tv all night. That would be me. I've had many of these nights....Nights where you need to just get things off your mind! OH and a HOT bath...

    Oh yeah, that is an ice cream kind of day. I have some B&Js in the freezer. I am willing to share! Of course, we would have to buy more since one pint of B&Js is pretty much one serving on a day like you have had.

    I am sorry, McKenna. That stinks!

    How rude to send it back! It seems like a mom yelling at her kid or something. I have some wonderful chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream if you're interested in driving to Florida.
