Have I mentioned that I hate being ignored?

I'm, as far as I know, still in the running for a job I applied for. I say "as far as I know" because I haven't heard anything from the person I interviewed with since late January. I sent an e-mail a couple weeks ago, just following up, and called and left a voicemail not too recently. Not a word. This person is almost going out of her way to avoid me. So, really, I probably don't have the job.

Now I've heard that back in the day, when you didn't get a job you would get a letter saying that you didn't get a job. It was nice; you knew where you stood. Any more, actually telling the person they haven't been hired seems to be optional. And quite frankly it pisses me off.

Look, if I'm not the most qualified guy, tell me. If I said something stupid at the interview, tell me. I'm not going to yell at you or sue you because I didn't get the job. But I will think you're an asshole if you can't even be bothered to print off a form letter and slap a 37-cent stamp on it. Hell, I'll even give you a self-addressed, stamped envelope so you can send the letter free of charge. And if you hire me you owe me 37 cents.

Update: The day after I left said voicemail, they dropped a GFY in the mail. Not exactly a surprise.
