    This reminds me of more than a few interviews I have been on in the past, the best of which was as a sales manager at an office supply company.  The manager interviewing me showed up late, belittled my school and past work experience, and stumbled when I asked him pointed questions about how the company operated at the end of the interview.  I was pretty damn convinced that he had no idea what the company actually did, or what my job would be.  The capper was when he called me two weeks later saying that he was very impressed, and he’d like me to come by for a second interview.

    I learned a valuable life lesson: the limits of how low I would stoop.
