Take a memo to Campus Security to be on the lookout for this guy in August, OK?

The Ultimate Rejection Letter

Herbert A. Millington
Chair - Search Committee
412A Clarkson Hall, Whitson University
College Hill, MA 34109

Dear Professor Millington,

Thank you for your letter of March 16. After careful
consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable
to accept your refusal to offer me an assistant professor
position in your department.

This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving
an unusually large number of rejection letters. With
such a varied and promising field of candidates, it is
impossible for me to accept all refusals.

Despite Whitson's outstanding qualifications and previous
experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your
rejection does not meet my needs at this time. Therefore,
I will assume the position of assistant professor in your
department this August. I look forward to seeing you then.

Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.

Chris L. Jensen

Anyone who's ever applied for a position -- and been rejected -- can identify with this. If only it were possible to get away with it....

I reject your rejection - there are many places in life where that would come in handy and not just with jobs!

Mortgages, credit cards, love ... the list could go on and on!

Oh wait, I just thought of something. If you continue to go after someone who has rejected you in the realm of love, I believe they already have a term for that. "Stalking".

I love it. It would probably work, too.
