... in which things are not as they seem.

Interview was a load of crap this morning. I'm not just saying that because I didn't get the job (though I probably wouldn't care as much if I had); I'm saying it because it was a load of crap.

"Hey guys, come in. We're just going to ask you to stand up, tell us your name, and then answer the five questions on your sheets of paper. And we want you to be stupid; don't take this seriously."

First, I have a problem with them telling us they want us to act stupid.

Second, I have a problem with the questions they asked: Why is a manhole cover round? Italian or Mexican? Do you sit in the front seat of a cab or the back and why? If you randomly found $10,000, what would you do with it? Etc?

Third, I have a problem with the fact that it lasted all of five minutes, at which point we were asked to leave so they could discuss our answers. A minute later they pop out, pick two guys (the first to answer questions, who was a goofball from what I could tell, and the guy before me who didn't even dress for the occassion - where was his shirt and tie, and why was it not important for him to be wearing them when we had to?), and tell the other three people that we should all reapply next time... which is when? WHO KNOWS!

Alex was cute though. One of the other guys applying. Footballer, though. Still, eyecandy is eyecandy, and it did soften the blow. I'd have preferred the job, though.
