I HATE JOB INTERVIEWS!

Yes, please, let me put on a face and airs that have nothing to do with my skills or the job so I can get past the 86 levels of H.R. in your company!

Why do I want to work here? FOR THE MONEY YOU FRICKIN' IDIOT! Mad

I -should- be polishing my elevator speech right now... ugh...

how'd the interview go?

stammered through the first question (which WASN'T 'tell me a little about yourself' but 'tell me what you know about the company/industry'... f [CENSORED] ), but nailed the rest of it.

so now i wait.

I'm a reanimated corpse in search of new career opportunities in the seafaring industry. My interests are hijacking vessels, rum, and braaaaaaains. I bring a deep skillset in pirattidute, shambling, grog-swilling, and plunder, with years of hands-on experience in the field. Or the ocean, as the case may be.

Would you like to tell me about some problems you're having in my areas of expertise, and I'll talk about how I'd decapitate them?

My talents are stabbing string with sticks and fondling bread dough. Not at the same time, of course.

Whatdya mean, I'm not qualified?

I'm not sure you want to work some the jobs where fondling 'bread dough' is a core skill. Red Face

There's gotta be a fluffer joke in there somewhere, but I haven't had caffeine yet.

In my experience, the best method of documentation is to abscond with the customs workers, and then feed them to the shrieking eels, which serves a dual purpose of drawing the eels away from your ship, and recalibrating the level of paperwork expected by government officials.

(You should hire me, I know big words).
