Oh, Dear…You’re Not Her

Here’s some silly Friday fun for you, courtesy of Tales of the Cluefree:

Once I did a phone interview with a candidate for a travel agent position. This candidate had a flat Midwestern accent, which is pretty common here in Milwaukee.

The candidate answered all the questions reasonably well, and there were no red flags, and she seemed qualified, so I scheduled her for an in-person interview.

When she came in, she had a very strong Russian accent…because she was not the same person. She’d had someone else do the phone interview for her.

Apparently her excuse was that she thought nobody would notice. And you’ll have to visit Clue Wagon to find out what she said next.

We really can’t figure out why you’d want to do this. Having someone else take your drug test? At least you have a chance of not getting caught, in that case.
