A KFC job rejection letter has gone viral after the unlucky applicant posted it online.
UK university student Sophie Corcoran applied for a job at the fast-food outlet, but when her application was refused, she took to Twitter to vent her frustration.
Despite having worked at another KFC for more than two years, Cameron was deemed not experienced enough for the role.
But what really infuriated her was the way the official “thanks but no thanks” letter was written.
The pun-heavy sentences may have been designed to soften the blow, but for Corcoran, it just rubbed salt into the wound.
“We’re cluckin’ delighted you’re keen to join our flock, however at this moment in time your skills aren’t the secret recipe the Colonel is looking for,” the letter reads.
“But we’d love to hear from you again when you have some more experience under your wing, so please give us a cluck if you would like to apply in the future.
“Best wishes, Team KFC.”
While some thought the letter was hilarious, many others thought it was plain mean.
“What a stupid response from KFC,” one person wrote.
“I hate letters like this.
“Why don’t they just get to the point and be honest instead of dressing it up?”
“I’m more shocked by the bad puns,” another observed.
“Sure, use them when you are offering someone a job, but in a rejection letter?”
“That rejection letter is f***ed up,” another said.
‘I’m more shocked by the bad puns.’
The letter was sent by the team at a KFC in Thinford, Durham, in northeast England.
One Twitter user was so outraged by the letter they tagged the outlet in their response.
“You seriously write rejection letters like this?,” they wrote.
“That’s how you treat people? Sort it out.”
Others were less bothered, thinking the letter was funny.
“Lowkey, KFC may have the most hilarious rejection letter I’ve ever seen lmfao,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Clucking hell, that’s hilarious,” another said.
