Relieved that I didn’t get the call center job in New York

I received an email yesterday entitled “Phone Interview”. I was confused at first, because I haven’t applied for any jobs lately, especially one in a call center in Long Island, New York. I have no idea who they actually spoke with, but I am glad that they enjoyed speaking with “me” and that they think my “capabilities are impressive and I demonstrated that I have a great deal to offer”.
I do feel bad for the real person who didn’t get the job, and I wish them well.

Just for grins, here’s the email:

Good evening Mr. Carr,
