For the last job I applied to, I had to compose a ten page essay on leadership. I wrote it in the format of a choose-your-own-adventure book.
When the time came for my interview, the manager said to me, “You know we’ll have a hard time taking you for the position. Your essay ended after two pages. That’s unacceptable.”
I answered, “With all due respect, sir, it’s not my fault you’re such a poor decision maker.”
Then he got angry. He spat out, “What makes you think it’s a good idea to treat this like a joke?”
I asked him, “What makes you think it’s a good idea to ride the roller-coaster in a haunted amusement park?”
I walked out of that interview knowing that the Pro-Choice Foundation isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
