Show up half an hour late for a job interview, scheduled for 1.30 in the afternoon, and give as an excuse that you overslept.
:lol:

My boss had a good laugh as well, but the applicant didn't get the job.

I prefer the Trainspotting method.

At least say you got lost. Or a hot chick intercepted you and gave you a great blowjob.

My favorite for somebody showing up on Tuesday for a Monday interview...

I forgot what day it was... He didn't get the job either ;)

Humm... I've done that. I copied down the wrong day on my calendar.

Put it down for Monday, when it was for a Tuesday interview. Showed up just in time for a cancellation. So we did the interview... and I got the job. I was hired on the spot, and asked to start that afternoon, actually.

Moral: Be early, not late. ;)

He didn't get it?
He sounds like a perfect co for you, someone to look up to.

I showed up the wrong WEEK for a job interview once.

The funny thing is, they were so desperate for some idiot to input a pile of data for a bag of peanuts, they offered it to me.

I turned them down too.
