Job interview nightmares

Interview nightmares: Employers too narrowminded Interview nightmares: The nervous gesticulator Job interview nightmares: It's getting personal Job interview nightmares: Which company is this? 'I don't employ married women' Name, experience... weight? Job interview nightmares: I messed this one up... Interview nightmares: 'Um, cos I'm awesome?' The creepiest interview ever Sorry, how old are you?

I went for an interview, dressed really well and looked the part. The would be boss took me into his office, and I sat in a chair ready to do my best.

I felt quite relaxed and sat back on the chair only to find it was a rocking type chair and I fell backwards, legs and arms flying. I got wedged between the chair and the wall with my skirt around my head and my legs sticking out.

The poor man tried not to laugh but had great difficulty getting me from out of the position I was in, due to his trying to hold back his laughter.

Once I was back on my feet, I dusted myself off and politely declined the offer of the interview and left with what dignity remained.
