Obsolete

We regret to inform you that you have not been selected.

You were passed over. You have been turned away. You have been rejected.

You are too smart but in ways that are useless, and perhaps even dangerous to our interests.

Your psyche tests were a disaster. You have opinions. You think. You question. You obsess. You even have a philosophy. You do not like to be told what to do, especially by someone who you do not respect. That is not how we do things here.

You question authority. That is not something we tolerate here. We will tell you what to do and how to think and what invisible man in the sky to believe in. We will tell you what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is evil.

All we ask is that you work yourself to death day after day and be thankful you have a job. We will do the thinking for you. Remember, we have the power. We have the money. 

You, well what do you have?

You are too old, too eccentric, too diverse, too smart, too damn aggressive, too physical. You are a loner who does not fit in. You are an outcast. You are a freak.

We no longer have any way of profiting from your continued existence.
You are of no interest to us or anyone else. You are useless.
You are not economically viable.
You are obsolete. 

Why are you still breathing anyway? 

In closing, we wish you the best of luck in your job search.

Sincerely,
Them
