Guy Follows Up After A Job Interview, Receives Insanely Rude Rejection Email In Response
We’ve all gone down the job search path before. You go in for an interview or two or four or ten (because some companies want to see how easy it would be to drive you insane) and then you sit around hearing nothing for weeks. In order to keep your sanity, you follow up with a nice “Hey, how the fuck did this go? And what the fuck is taking so long?” email. With any luck, you get a definitive response or they leave you waiting in purgatory.
Like most people, 48-year-old James Allen decided to follow up to see how his recent interview went with Right Price PVCu, a window firm. This is the response he received.
Here it is again for our vision-impaired friends…
Sincere apologies for not replying to you today, as it happens I actually have a job, and other things to do with my day other than reply to you, when I had already had the misfortune of wasting 30 very long minutes of my life speaking to; not only the most inappropriate person for this job role, but probably for any role, you will spend the next few years applying for, only to get rejected as soon as they meet you.
You are without doubt one of the most irritating, rude, obnoxious and arrogant people I have had the misfortune to meet, and your email just solidifies this.
Also, for an old aesthetically challenged guy with no teeth you have an unbelievable amount of confidence!
So you say, you didn’t notice the word ‘professional’ on our website… belive me, if I had been anything other than ‘professional’, I would have told you what I was actually thinking which was ‘this guy is an absolute ****, get the **** out’.
But no, alas, I stayed ‘professional’. I only wish I’d have seen your CV beforehand, to save us both the time, as I would have probably noticed your main job role as ‘professional p****’.
Good luck for the future
Seems fake, right? Well, it’s not. According to Sarah Haseler, the lady who wrote the scathing response, she actually did write that email and she’s got a dynamite reason as to why she did it.
According to the Daily Mail:
‘Ironically, I had read something that day which said if you are angry or upset you should write it down and get it all out to move on.
‘So that evening at home I did this. I then wrote another email reply to James.
‘Unfortunately, I now realise that it was in fact the other email which was sent in error, which was never supposed to be seen by him.
‘I must stress this was my personal opinion, and not the opinion of the company, and the email written, although sent in error, was in retaliation to a person insulting me.’
Ms Haseler claims the meeting with James was not an official interview as they were looking for a self-employed labourer to help carry out basic tasks such as carrying materials and dig holes.
She added: ‘James was so unbelievably rude, inappropriate and insulting, towards me personally and also the company.
Well, that’s a blatant “sorry I’m not sorry” if I’ve ever seen one. And if Jimmy was a fucking arrogant prick, I can’t say that I blame her.
