Everyone clap their hands! So far I've gotten three agent rejections! Yay me! Here they are, in no particular order:
Thank you for the query, although I do not think that I would be the right agent for the novel.
Diana Finch Literary Agency
116 West 23rd St, Suite 500
New York, NY 10011
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your recent submission.
Unfortunately we cannot offer representation.
Because of the large number of submissions, we are forced to be extremely
selective when considering new material. We encounter many more talented
writers and interesting projects than we can represent, so we carefully
guard our time to most effectively serve our small number of clients.
Everyone's taste and judgment are subjective and others may feel
differently, so we encourage you to contact other agencies. We wish you
the best of luck in finding great success with your work.

Dear Ms. Troeppl:
Thanks very much for sending me your query letter regarding NEVER RIDE WITH A STRANGER, which I have now had the chance to read.
As interesting as your story is, I’m sorry to say that I don’t think I’m the right agent for it. Having the right agent is an important match – as important as author and publisher – and it is also a very subjective decision. So I encourage you to try other agents and wish you every success in finding the best representative for your work.
At least the last one was a bit more personal in that I think she looked at it and may have read what I sent.
