What Is Worse Than Being Rejected for a Job?

Being rejected for a job you didn't apply for.

(Actually, it's probably not worse in a real life sort of way, as, not having applied, there would be no investment in the job itself, but it truly is a deeply existential kind of rejection: to not be desired even by those you had no thought might desire you.)

Hahahahaha. That is so funny, although I'm sure it didn't feel funny when you wrote it. But your Jewishe humor shows through!

That's like the boyfriend who breaks up with you when you've already broken up with him the week before.
