    A Southern California resident whose job applications were repeatedly rejected by the San Diego Padres baseball organization is now receiving calls from several general managers after an angry email she sent the club went viral.

    Even the Padres' sales team was impressed with Taylor's courage.
    "Taylor's letter was too incredible for anyone to get offended," one member told Deadspin. "I'm more impressed than angry."
    According to KSWB-San Diego, Meyer has received dozens of job offers since her message went viral. The law school dropout told The Daily News that she has spoken with the commissioner of a sports league, several baseball general managers and some CEOs of other organizations. "The NHL and NFL have been especially great," she said.

    Why is this news worthy?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    You can use whatever lame excuse you want to ignore facts you don't like. Calling my sig hate filled and ignorant is your lack of comprehension and not my problem.

    It didn't put anyone "in their coffin."
    ****, I guess the next time someone tells off their boss, it should be prime news at 6 o clock.

    Geesh.

    She didn't simply tell them off. She had written it so effectively as to cause the email to go viral. She had written it so well it has garnered her many job opportunities.

    Sorry I just don't see this as worthy of serious news coverage.

    Nobody said it was serious news coverage. It is certainly more news worthy than half the crap out there.

    She'll be on late night talk shows before the end of the month. Good for her.

    I have hired and not hired many people. If I received a letter like this I'd have to interview her in person. Hell, I want people with balls and fire in their belly. You damn well betcha if you hired a qualified person like this she'd have to work her fanny off to walk the talk! If she is qualified, ambitious and as assertive as she sounds she'd be an asset in the right position. Taylor appears to be much more than some fat slag who just wants a paycheck. She wants a career in sports management. If it were me I'd give her the opportunity to work her way up in the organization.

    I have worked with and have friends who are in sports management in the NFL, the NBA and FBS. They are to my experience great people who love what they do. They work their butts off and they work odd hours way beyond 40 hours a week. The people I know realize what a fantastic career they have. Taylor is gutsy. She doesn't seem like the kind of person who would require lighting a fire under her ass. She'll get hired and she'll be given a shot by a professional organization somewhere. It'll be up to her to earn her way from there. I think she'll do fine.

    What a story! Go Taylor!
