I TN casual conversation around the newsroom recently, I discovered several brothers and sisters under the skin One way or another, most of us had suffered the bitter humiliation of re- jection, and belong to that elite group cf human beings who have experienced life's Grand and Noble Order of the Best. Our esteemed district ed- itcr, for instance, smarts over an incident from his sal- ad days. After one short week in his boarding house, he was ignominicusly tossed out, ai'd Eul dcesr't know why. He es- sures me he didn't once, smoke his opium oipe in cf the landlord, entertain girls sftsr mir'nigbt, or set fire to the What's rnc.e. charged his socks regularly. And beneath the ouiet. un- assuming exterior cf one of our city writers, lurks the heart of a rejected man. He was banished from choir in Grade 6. when the powers- that-be felt his frsrtic imita- tion of Elvis Preslev doing Eoi'rd Dawg did nothing to enhance the choir's devout renwtion of Onward Christian Soldiers. At the age cf 13. another scribe was blacklisted at the swimming pool after a slight hassle with a lifeguard In the heat cf the moment, she for- got she was a lady and spat in his face Our most charming and de- lightful free lancer recsntlv joined cur group. She is still muttering threats and in- cantations against a down- town store, after being cer- emoniously shown the door. Apparently s u s p e c ted her c-f smuggling cut a pair of missing s'eerwng bags in her coat pocket. Mind you, knowing the size of the hand- bags she carries. I'm Sur- prised they didn't accuse her of shoplifting half the store. Still another of mv literary friends suffered at least tem- porary rejection, when his wife refused to speak to him for two weeks. He offered some visitors a plate of cookies with the joking little remark "would you like yours homemade or His wife was very sensitive about her baking. Then there is the guy who suffered severe physical as well as mental anguish while away on assignment. Under the impression his hotel win- dow was open, he sat down em the ledge somewhat heavily. The window was not open, and a very delicate portion of his anatcmy crashed through the glass. By the itme all the s'ivers were removed, the ho- tel had packed his bags and were hailing a taxi for him. Not to be outdone, I was myself drummed out of aec- cretarial college after only three weeks. My crimes in- cluded a complete inability to tell debit and credit from plus and minus. I also peeked at my fingers while learning to type. My career in secre- tarying never even got off the ground. But for sheer, unadulter- ated scc'jbiFhress I'll bet there are very few people in town who were ever thrown cut jf Government House in Ceylon. I was five at the time, and fi "erbowls were just one of litt'e mysteries. When o-e was placed before me, I dived in End gave my face and hands an enthusiastic I was banished from the dining room in dire disgrace. And, think of all the fa- thsrs in town who battle mightily with their sons' homework, oniv to end up with a humiliating D. Then what about the moth- er who breaks her neck keep- ing little NE'Jsea and Egg- bert clean, tidy and well fed, then gats ostracized because five minutes before the school bake sale she can't manage to whip up four ap- ple p-ies? In short, everyone who has ever felt at sometime or oth- er that in the Icng commer- cial of life, be or she is Brand X welcome to the club!
