Better qualified?! ARGH!

Well, I was right, again.

I got a letter from the place I interviewed for today...

Dear Tim: Thank you for your interest in COMPANY NAME. We appreciate your time and enjoyed the opportunity to talk with you. Upon further review of your qualifications we have determined that another candidate will more closely meet our needs for this position. In the event another position would become available that would meet both our needs you will be contacted. We appreciate your interest in employment opportunities at COMPANY NAME and wish you success in your career search.

First of all, I really HATE the fact that they cut into my schedule, left me hanging for so long, and hit me with this. The entire time, I have been stressing out because I was really hoping that this was my break -- I was wrong. Also, they required me to call off work one day for 3 hours of testing, and didn't even offer to pay for my gas to get there and back! I mean, don't get me wrong, I do understand that this was my choice to try for this job, yadda yadda yadda, but with the gas prices being > $3.00 per gallon at the time I went down there (TWICE!), it's pretty inconsiderate that they did this to me.

And another thing, look at the punctuation and whatnot in the quoted message above ^^. I'm not perfect, but man! "In the event another position would become available that would meet both our needs you will be contacted." WTF?! That's like... ARGH! USE A COMMA!

After I take the time to cool down a bit, I'm going to send them a letter and ask them how I wasn't qualified. I'm getting really BLEEEEEPing tired of getting these stupid letters.
