My two cents here....

After several weeks of unemployment this summer (which felt like years...), I interviewed for four jobs in one week. Three of them contacted me to say that I was the "second choice" if the first one fell through. The fourth never contacted me.

A month later, I took a job that I love. Two weeks later, I was contacted by the no-contact from six weeks before. "You are our number one choice. When can you start?" I had to explain that they were a little slow in contacting me...Interestingly, the positions were nearly identical -- setting up the documentation process/department in a medical firm looking forward to 21 CFR Part 11 certification (which I had never even heard of before!)

So, keep your options open, but ignore the person who was rude to you. What goes around comes around, as they say.
