When I was underemployed for about four years, I applied for many jobs. Resumes were sent to just about every company in town. I got so many rejection letters that I joked that I would “paper the wall in my office with them.” It wasn’t a joke; more like cynicism; at least sarcasm.
Today I started going thru the letters as part of my paper reduction actions. Old memories surfaced.
Just before I shifted into a “pity party” I got a grip on my emotions.
I took a picture and threw the whole stack into the Tuesday pickup.
