I wish this didn't familiar, but over the years, it's been familiar -- to familiar.

Examples of things I've heard:

"You're too advanced for us. We're not anywhere close to where you are with technology."

"You're more qualified for my job than I am."

"We have a problem. You're the most qualified person for the job, but the CEO wants a 20-something. But there aren't any 20-somethings who are qualified." (At least they were honest.) (Solution: they hired no one.)
