Pissed is the mood of the day.
My husband applied for a local job.
He needed 3 letters of reference, of which 2 he got speedy-quick.
The 3rd, he asked...waited, then finally got a yes.
The person replied with, I will send it to you tomorrow.
"Tomorrow" came and went.
As did the deadline for the job application.
The application was turned in anyway. Incomplete.
An email was sent.
Not to be annoying, just to be assertive.
"Thank you for offering to write a letter of reference for me for the job of ....... The deadline for the application has come and gone. If you can still send me the letter, I will send it in with my incomplete application and see if can be accepted."
3 days later. Nothing.
I am so pissed. So unprofessional.
This whole time we could have found someone more reliable to write this letter.
But, hope was held out.
This wasn't to volunteer to coach baseball.
It's a JOB application.
For a JOB. That pays the bills and supports a family.
One that might not be offered, maybe because of an incomplete application. Maybe.
Thanks for nothing.
