What's your best rejection story?

E. Spat at Will Work for Favorable Dicta had a good post about rejection letters that turned into readers telling stories about their favorites (you know, to the extent that you can have a favorite soul-crushing moment). Somehow or other this turned into a quest to boil down your rejection letters into greeting card format. For example, last year I received a rejection letter from a firm to which I did not apply, so that card might look like this:
Front: We just wanted to let you know...

Inside: don't waste your time applying!

Some of my favorites so far are:

Front: Thanks for thinking of [firm name]

Inside: If you ever need a good lawyer, call us.

Front: We heard you wanted a job with us!

Inside: NO!

Front: We had lots of qualified candidates!

Inside: Too bad you weren't one of them!

Check out the post here, and be sure to add your own in the comments.
