I developed an irrational hate for him :mrgreen:

It was rational :mrgreen:

I got the second interview :canny: Didn't do as bad as I thought. Or I did and others did worse. Which helps a lot.

:smilin: ... I had a feeling you would - that's why I said "I hope you get a second shot"

Well done, and fingers crossed for you!

So what makes you think I'm great for this role?"

This reframes the interview as a conversation rather than a grilling, starts off the interview by compelling the interviewers to form positive associations of you from the start (you know the people who say first impressions don't matter? They're idiots) and reasons why it would be in their interests rather than yours to give you the job.


If I was interviewing you that would piss me off enough to give you the heave ho! :mrgreen: :shoot:


Yes, because that's likely to happen.


:gigglesnshit: Yeah, like you’d ever get to an interview stage.


Fair point.

I've got no interest in selling pot pourri.

I wasn't late. I was early. Interviews were running late.


That's fair enough then.

I was talking in general, but in your case I'd be a bit annoyed about their timekeeping, but of course you can't say that in the interview.

Just like when you've made the effort to turn up to a hospital, GP or dental appointment on time and you have to wait around for ages.

I have missed one hospital appointment and got what I'd call a fairly stroppy letter in the post saying I didn't turn up. I don't write them letters every time my appointments have been delayed, on one occasion for over an hour.

I don't mind waiting. I understand that people are not objects and each may take a different amount of time. I understand that prior to my appointment there may have been circumstances that led to the lateness out of their control.

If you found your appointment displeasing you should have spoken up. I know my surgery has feedback forms where you can write a review And on their website. This will help them to improve services if you give feedback.


I did speak up. I went to reception and said to them 'if I don't see the GP/consultant within the next 15 minutes, I'm walking out'. That got things moving. However I didn't fill in a feedback form, as delays are inevitable until they employ more staff, but they know that already.

Anything for a bit of attention on here.

She’s probably just pissed off that he fancied the women with big boobs and not her. Doing the Duck Face probably didn’t help LOL.

At one time men had to enlist in the military for a short period to serve their country, after work today I think alternatively everyone should have to work retail for that same period. It would greatly reduce the number of dense, irritating fuckers who go shopping.
