List: Ways McSweeney's Hurt My Feelings

“Appreciate your giving us a shot with this one, but I'm afraid we're not going to use it.”

“I'm afraid I'm going to pass. Thanks for the look.”

“Also, we are returning the lock of hair you enclosed.”

“OMGAWD TINA FEY! THIS PIECE WAS AMAZ—whoops, sorry, wrong email address.”

“That color isn't really working for you.”
