A Warped POV by A. Dacosta Brathway

Maybe it's just me... I recently received a rejection letter for a job I applied for a couple of weeks ago. The letter writer wrote that she "...wished me luck in my job search." Bitch please! You wish me luck? What... Did I need "luck" to get that job, or any job in that particular line of work? What about whether I was qualified or not? I could see if she gave me some specific reason why I did not get it, based on my resume. I guess she wished me luck because I did not have "luck" listed on my resume as one of my accomplishments. (Where would I list "luck" anyway? Would that be under "Accomplishments?") If "luck" is one of the requirements to get a position, maybe colleges should offer a course in it! Colleges do prepare you for the workforce, doesn't it? I mean I was always told that I had to get a college education to get a good job, but I do not recall taking a luck course(?). Condescending bitch... Keep your position, which you made sound like I needed "luck" to get. Hopefully the person who gets the job is lucky enough. If I may, I would like to send a message to the "lucky" person who qualifies... "Don't worry about knowing how to do the job. You're lucky! That is all you need."
