I think we are getting to serious around here so in my endeavor to boost moral here is a video on things you should not say at a job interview or a first date or any date for that matter. Besides this is just to funny not to put up here because everyone here probaly knows someone who would say stuff like this at a job interview. Enjoy!

Good idea and from Singapore:
Only financially secure adults in stable, committed, long-term relationships should participate.

...at an interview. My travails in the employment field may be over for the moment- I managed to get a job as a Hotel Night Porter primarily through guile and deviousness -but before I resorted to such Byzantine tactics I was asked the following questions at previous interviews:

"Why did your previous relationship end?"

"What superhero would you be?" (my response was, "Marvel, 2000AD or DC?" which shut them up sharpish!!!)

"What magazine would best describe your personality?"

"How important is wearing matching socks?" (the interviewer was a female and so I replied "about as important as wearing a matching bra and knickers I suppose"- suffice to say she was not amused. This was for a well-known UK think-tank by the way!)

"How important is facial hair on a man?" (I have a goatee, did they want me to shave it off?)

"What position do you sleep in" (WTF!!!? This one was for a well-known US fast food chain when I applied for the position of cleaner.)

Those are the most memorable ones that come to mind.

Q "Wouldn't abort your current *** mean too much lost invest?"
A "That's irrelevant. I don't consider sunk costs."

Baaaaaaad move - indirectly telling the potential boss (owner of a 50ish employees company) that he didn't absorb MBA basics fully.
