(interviewer): "Mr BS, we've been over your resume (which was a completely legitimate resume. Education, goals, work experience, and related skills- It just wasn't mine.), and you seem to be just what we're looking for. The
starting salary is $71,000. Are you interested in the position?"
(me): "Well sure. I've never made that kind of money legally before. I've got to tell you though; This isn't exactly what I expected."
(interviewer): "uhhhh..... what, uhhhhh..... how do mean....."
(me): "You see, my cell-mate and I must have gotten our classifieds mixed up. I responded to his ads and visa-versa. It's cool though- my buddy's got a computer and he could show me how it works tonight. I mean, how hard could it be to be the Senior Software Developer, right? s---, I was pretty good at video games, and the Burger King had those computer registers- who really needs school when you've got all that experience?"
By this time the interviewer has vacated the office, I've got a hand full of pens and a new stapler, and I'm down the street in front of a double Stoli celebrating another successful interview before security comes to escort me out of the building. The working world's tough, but I'm adjusting.
remember- never try to expand your mind unless you've got a really big head
