Well f*ck that for a game of soldiers... just had an interview for a promotion at work.

Unfortunately: a) the buses were messed up again today, so I got in about two or minutes late (luckily late for the test, not the actual interview), b) I slept vey badly on account of c) the sinus infection I have, that broke out in a fever just before the interview. Brilliant. Because I love interviews so much in the first place.

So how did I do?

Let's just say it would have been better if I'd walked in, ripped off all my clothes, stuck a rose up my arse, and recited a few Shakespeare sonnets.

At least then I might have gotten a few bonus points for style.

ETA: Huh... shows what I know. I got it. 

I  will never understand the way companies work, I swear. *I* wouldn't have hired me... *shrugs and goes back to work*

I've screwed up interviews before and got the job; I once started hyperventilating in the middle and the interviewer asked if I wanted her to help me to the toilets. Fingers crossed that you did better than you think. If not, that something else comes along.

Thank you, that's very sweet.

I'm just going "grrr... ok back to work now".

You were right. I'm very confused, and too ill to be happy. But you were right.

Congratulations! :D Interviewers are probably better at seeing through things like nerves and illness than we think they are; clearly your interviewers saw what they wanted to see. The whole process is utterly inscrutable to me, but such is life.

Bah, I'm sorry. Very grrrr.

Have you seen the Naked Man! episode of How I met Your MOther yet?

Maybe ripping off your clothes might have worked! Two out of three!

I do appreciate the originality of your proposed Classics recital. I'd pay to see it anyway.

Be that as it may: Congrats on the promotion! :)

Obviously you displayed precisely the qualities they were looking for...

...I think I'll take that as a compliment. Thanks.

Ha! I'll take it either way :)

Maybe the only other candidate (yes, I checked) threatened them with violence or something...

I'd have certainly given you the job if you'd done that!

Clearly you are selling yourself short! Congratulations! I hope I have such luck!

You should save the naked rose sonneting for your review, though.
