your tax dollars at work

Imagine my surprise when I found this little gem of an email waiting for me when I got out of my meeting this afternoon:

You submitted an application for vacancy 050298: Writer-Editor, GS-1082-11. Although we greatly appreciate your interest in this position, ultimately another candidate was selected.

Again, we appreciate your interest in employment with the Library Of Congress.

Yes, I did submit an application for this position. IN DECEMBER OF 2005.

Good thing I wasn't holding my breath there.

Though to be fair, the Library of Congress is very, very busy making sure their employees are properly equipped with Glow Sticks in case of a terrorist attack. Probably HR was diverted from processing job applications because the Library needed them to distribute anti-aircraft disco balls.

Should we be concerned that the Library of Congress are a bunch of liars? I mean c'mon...

"Although we greatly appreciate your interest in this position..."

Greatly appreciate does not equal 10 months of waiting.

LIARS! All of them!

Apart from the fact that it is a beautiful place, I hate working at LoC. Most of the librarians and security staff are rude and beyond unhelpful. In some cases they try to inhibit your research.

Boy the stories I could tell you about that place. You're too good to work there!

I love it when you get rejections for jobs you'd forgotten you'd applied for. Don't even bother with the rejection at that point. I reject you first!
