Manuscript to the Shredder

Here's what it's like to get a rejection in South Africa. Click the image to enlarge and read.  Not very glamorous there either.

A book rejection I got today was actually marked as being from the "Submissions Robot". I suppose that like a robot, an agent is cold to the touch and has no soul but really...GUYS, if you're too cool to read them - then why ask us to send them? Also why not just have the automated message say that you didn't have time instead of lying and saying that you read them?
And they wonder why their industry is on the brink of extinction. If they can't be bothered to read a few chapters - why should they expect a paying customer to?
