In an interview today..

Me - "So tell me why you say on your resume you're a hard worker and respectful of others"

Girl - "Ok, well...(cell phone noise)... just a second" she then proceeded to to pull out her phone and answer a text... "Sorry, didn't want to let her forget we were going out tonight"

Me - "Don't worry about, you can just call her now, and let her know you're done"

*facepalm*

You have to have one more, Francois. Because, on the third day of Christmas, my True Love gave to me ... Three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge that she wouldn't let me shoot out of the pear tree. I'm not a fan of doves, but partridges are tasty (prefer duck, pheasant or quail). French hens are beautiful. See why you walk Robert and Prunette around on leashes.

Ciao, John

I'm hoping for one of those interviews where he asks me questions about WitP functions, we shoot the breeze for a bit, I get hired on the spot for an exorbitant salary and then take him out for drinks to the pub on the corner.
