Rejected by Microsoft...

Did you read the subject line on the Microsoft e-mail? What's your opinion worth? How about $500? When I read that it sounded like a hoax to me or even worse... like some sort of virus, trojan, or horrible phishing scam. I almost didn't open the thing because of the subject line. But... being a true American (who could really use $500) I decided to risk it and opened the darn thing up. You can see what I found.

A survey. A lousy survey with a chance to win one of five-$500 cash prizes. What do you think the odds are? Especially if it was sent to every single Microsoft user in the world? It would be like trying to win the lottery in the People's Republic of China.

The first thing I thought when I read that e-mail was, "Dang those *cheap* Microsoft people! Don't you think they could come up with more prizes and money than that?"

Then the second thing I thought was that it could possibly be my golden opportunity to tell them what I think about their operations in China. (I hope you have been keeping up with my posts.) So I decided to fill out their survey.

Three panels later I discover that I have been rejected by Microsoft. No explanation other than I "didn't fit their profile". What?! Do I have to be of Asian decent or something?

The only thing I can figure out is that they want someone who is using their latest and greatest stuff. Or... they could have been reading my blog. hmmmm...

I have to rationalize rejection for my own personal mental health. So... I figure that the reason I was rejected was because I'm still operating off of Windows 98. Microsoft needs to reconsider and just give me that $500 so that I can upgrade my operating system. They can afford it.

Oh, you poor thing. Windows 98? Argh..

I suggest you go ahead and do a straight upgrade to OS X. ;-)
