What are the chances that someone receives a rejection letter from the graduate school of their dreams on their birthday? It is really bad luck and even worse timing.
But this story has a happy ending. She found another school and has already completed her master’s!
Isn’t It Ironic?
He shared his rejection on Twitter. He even used the #ShareYourRejections hashtag to talk about how Twitter revoked their decision to hire him, but not before he told everyone he knew about the great news.
The social media giant crushed his dream and left him humiliated in front of friends and family. It was a brutal rejection. If only it were possible to block and unfollow Twitter itself!
They Bonded Over “Lord of the Rings”
“LOTR” brought them together and tore them apart. Her crush decided she was a poser when it came out that she had not read J.R.R. Tolkien’s first, and notoriously archaic, book.
It was a severe rejection. One question. Does that dude really expect to find someone who likes him and has read “Silmarillion?”
“We hope you made other plans.” Seriously? Was that really necessary? How could an institution like Johns Hopkins send out a rejection letter that says untalented writers need not apply? Further down in the Twitter feed, she said that she no longer has the missive because she “burned it in a fit of rage.”
Nevertheless, she did find out that this is what happens when graduate students are commissioned by admissions.
A Certain Shade of Brown
Clearly, she is not his “Brown-Eyed Girl,” sha-la-la-la-la-la. But his comment about the shade of brown of her eye color is savage and over-the-line. She took the rejection in stride.
“Melted chocolate” is much preferable. She will define her own facial features, thank you very much.
