School District of Ridiculousness

So, back in November I got a "job offer" from Ridiculous School District.

Two days later I got an e-mail from the Principal informing me that their HR department filled the position and I was out of a job. /Sorry

Today, I got home to this e-mail from their HR department in response to my sending them some general information back in August. It basically asks me to send them the same things I brought them for my interview in November.

I Replied with anger:

Hello Lady,

I am replying to your inquiry into my certification. I currently hold an Instructional I FUNFUN certificate and a SILLINESS program specialist. I am currently working as a long-term substitute until the end of May 2011. I would also like to let you know that I already interviewed with Dr. Old Man at Crazy School in November. While he originally made an employment offer, he informed me via e-mail two days later that Human Resources filled the position he offered me. Both Old Man and Human Resources should have all of my information as I was under the impression that he was sending my paperwork to HR. Please let me know if you have any more questions or need any other paperwork.




or disrespectfully???

(we all know which one)

Also- Maybe if I involved them, they'd understand?
