Courtesy no longer exists

Dear Editor:

I’m responding to Heather Miller’s letter to the editor (“Professional courtesy a lost art,” Dec. 11, The Aspen Times). You seem to have hit the nail squarely on the head with your response to hiring practices in this area.

Maybe we are, or at least I am, too old to fit the new Aspen mold, or the person reviewing the application is fearful for their job. I personally am just trying to receive the opportunity for the position applied for. Not someone else’s job.

Also, through the years, I find the quality of some of the worker bees to be substandard.

Employers, please at least respond back, even if it’s the dreaded “no.”

Thank you for your time.

Bill Graves
