Thank You Letter

Dear School District,
I just wanted to write to you to thank you for wasting all of our time. Your 50% music position will most likely be a boon to someone much closer--say a student near there or a stay at home mom. That's why I called before driving 1.5 hours and 4 gallons of gas. An interview that would have been a waste of time, and me out, almost $40 just in gas. I'm really going to move that far for a 50% position for which I had to call you and ask the right questions upfront.

Is this a new position? Yes.
What's the pay that I would be getting half of? Half of whatever the flyer said.
Are there benefits? No.

Can you imagine moving an hour and a half for that BS? Yeah. Me either.

I feel your pain. I got the run around about a sub job today. It pretty much took the wind out of my sails.

Hey Dudette, one time I got this call from a company in Denver for a gig and I flew out there only to be told by the VP, "Oh I'm sorry, but I don't like people from California. They are too lazy."

See, you could have flown to Denver on your own dime to hear that. LOL
