Rejection rejected!

One of my friends got rejected for the AIESEC Overseas Internship Program, and since he knew I drafted the rejection letter, he replied back [only to me]. *The name appearing below is not, of course, the name of that person, and the email has been edited to make more (non)sense. Also, it's not a Pakistani friend.


Subject: Re: Result - AIESEC Overseas Internship Program

Kent Ridge, P.O.Box 1077,
Singapore 911103.


Thank you for your letter of February 5. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me a chance to go for an AIESEC Overseas Internship.

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

Despite AIESEC'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 my acceptance in the internship program. I look forward to seeing you then.

Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.

"stumble"? Is this some feature of Firefox that I don't know about? What is the courtesy of Aesa? Link to my blog?

Yeah, it was a little too funny for it to be original. I also found the letter in a google search and it has only been personalised a bit.

oooh..google "firefox stumble" and download. its jackpot after jackpot, a wealth of wonderful sites and pages , on music, movies, the arts, math, politics, watever, watever.
And all you have to do is click "stumble" on your toolbar.
I sound like an ad.

Aesa found this somewhere on the net.

Fabulous. Absolutely fabulous! I guess I better burn all my course-books now. I mean, with such stuff, how do they expect us to actually study! There is so much going on in the world for us to 'stumble' upon!

Thanks for sharing this Iris. Thanks 'Aesa'!

And Iris, advertisement is good. Everyone needs to be more media-aware. At least I do.
