Think you’ve been through too much rejection lately? People receive rejection letters on a daily basis, whether it is for a job application, university application, or even trying to get a recording contract. I’ve received rejection from websites and companies when I’ve pitched articles and blog posts. How we deal with it will affect our futures.
Sometimes rejection doesn’t have to be the end of the world. There are some rejection letters that are just hilarious, and probably were for the people receiving them (once they got over the initial disappointment).

Applicant Turns the Table to Reject a Rejection
This is my last of the lot — how many people would like to send this to someone who rejected them?
