Me: "I've never actually gone to any school in Maryland."
Interviewer: [disappointed] "Oh. So I guess I can't talk to you about crabcakes."
Once, on a job interview, the guy wanted to talk to me about building canoes. I told him the closest I'd ever been was in a landing craft in the Marine Corps. I didn't get the job.ReplyDelete
