to desire the replica

posted on: April 30th, 2009

Things to avoid saying/doing if you are sitting in the administrators office while applying for a program in a post secondary institution;

“I don’t really do rules.”

“So if I’d have to put up with the rules, you guys would have to put up with my attitude, right?”

Using my business card as a toothpick during interview.

“Can you deny me entrance or do you have to let me in?”

*removes small tupperware container from pocket with something red in it* “Here! Smell this.”

I have a one way mirror in my office (because I like to spy on people) and there were several staff member faces pressed against it while Mr. McTwitchy crackalicious was in with me. I think they feared a knifing or some such similar carnage. I would finish this post with some witty wrap up but I am far too busy checking that my “application denied” stamp has sufficient ink.

Oooh..the power Chica! Ain’t it great! ;)

Now, that’s funny! Smell this, indeed.

What an idiot.

I’ve had some winning job applicants too.

Brian Smart Says:

Oh the stories I could tell. Like the guy who showed up drunk to his interview. The guy who farted in front of the hiring board was good too. The one young lady I had come in and at the end of the interview tell us that “Well you’d better make up your minds quickly because I have other applications out there you know”.

“Grabbing your boob isn’t sexual harassment, right?”

“Aren’t I fabulous?”

“My office is going to be bigger than this, naturally…”

“Have you head the good word about…”

Desert Rat Says:

And perhaps

“I own a gun” or “I like guns” should also not be something you say while in the application stage.

and not put their feet on your desk while their cleaning their teeth! I’d hope.

As a toothpick…? Some people have no home-training.
