Herbert A. Millington Chair - Search Committee 412A Clarkson Hall, Whitson University College Hill, MA 34109 Dear Professor Millington, Thank you for your letter of March 16. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me an assistant professor position in your department. This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of candidates, it is impossible for me to accept all refusals. Despite Whitson'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 the position of assistant professor in your department this August. I look forward to seeing you then. Best of luck in rejecting future applicants. Sincerely, Chris L. Jensen
The answer is that we are all still CAVEMEN and are longing for a TRIBE!
I’m watching my favorite show (Koffee With Karan ) on TV, when the phone rings.
(Koffee With Karan is a celebrity inetrview show broadcasted in India)
There’s an agitated lady on the phone.
Lady: “Hello? BSNL? My phone has not been working for….”
(BSNL is a telephone service provider in India)
Me (interrupting) : “I think you have the wrong number”
Lady: “Oh! I’m sorry…”
and I hang up the phone. 3 seconds later, it rings again. It’s the same lady.
