People in my position are accustomed to getting rejection letters. Today I received another one. I’m pondering writing the following letter in reply (but am fairly certain that I will not act on it):
Dear [name removed]
I am writing to you in regard to your rejection letter dated _______, telling me that I have not been successful in applying for the position of ________. Every month I receive a large number of excellent rejection letters. I am sorry to advise you that yours has not been accepted on this occasion. I want to thank you for the time that you’ve taken to write this rejection letter and I wish you all the best in rejecting other applicants.
