Interview Horror Stories

Ignorance Isn't Bliss

"At the end of the interview, she told me that she was SURE we'd work out SO well together.  Then, smiling and perky, she said she had to go, because she was parked in one ‘those’ spots and was afraid she was going to get a ticket.  I asked what spots?  She said, 'You know, the ones for the old people.'  She was parked in a handicap spot.

Result: Did not get the job
