That's terrible. I shouldn't be laughing....

Thanks for the encouragement, all - I will give them another chance at me. :-)

Several years ago, I applied for a job and got no response back. A few months
later, that position was being advertised again. I didn't do anything
different--at least not that I can recall.

The second time, I got a call and did a phone interview, then did a
face-to-face a few days later. At the second interview, I asked how the
position came to be open and found out that the person who had the position had
DIED! (No kidding.) Naturally, I asked if it was somehow job-related. They
didn't think it was.
