Came home today and first thing told me that I might be getting a call from one of his teachers.

Great

Seems that during a mock interview in his marketing class, when the interviewer (teacher) said "hello ds#2, you must be the new applicant".

His reply: noo ma'am, I'm the appliCAN .

The teacher was not amused. He didn't get the job.

I can't fault him though, the instructions did say that light humor can be beneficial in an interview. That and it's just friggin funny .

Sigh... I guess I'll have to be all grown up and crap and deal with this when the teacher calls.

The teacher is going to call just because of that?!?! Over-reaction or what? I think it's clever and funny - I would give him extra points for it!

Oh, for shit's sake! I once hired a kid who told me he was late for the interview because when he was getting out of the car, he noticed he had a zit on his nose and he had to pop it before he could come in. Then he proceeded to insult me by saying he enjoyed his previous job in customer service for a computer company because he liked helping old people--people in their 30s and 40s.

He turned out to be one of my best employees.

I would have hired your DS


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Really? What a misery she is! That was funny and sweet and like ThoughtIKnewYa, I'd probably have hired him on the strength of that alone.

Talked with the teacher today... I pointed out the light humor on the instruction sheet. She said she didn't find the play on words to be "light" humor, but something like talking about the weather would be appropriate .

I told her I had consulted a panel of experts (you guys ), and while humor can be subjective, the general consensus was that it was funny and appropriate, and we would just have to disagree on what light humor was. I then looked at my bare wrist and said "look at the time! thank you for meeting with me."


Hopefully, when DS#2 goes for a real interview, one of you guys will be his potential boss .

Why, thank you. I've never been on a panel of experts before. And what part of the country is she in? The weather is anything but funny right now!!!

OMG, she sounds like one of those frustrated old maid school marms from the old west movies of my childhood so many eons ago! I bet she walks around the classroom with a ruler in her hand to rap the students on the knuckles before she grabs them by the ear and sends them off to the woodshed!!

Oops, I guess I'm really showing my age, huh?

Seriously, I agree with the expert panel. Does that make me an expert, too?

The teacher was not amused. He didn't get the job.

She's a putz.

He's a comical genius!

She obviously has no sense of humor and/or she's just a miserable soul.

You did great at the conference! Way to go!
