If a patient grabbed a burrito out of the hands of a visitor then took a bite out of it, what would you do?

3 Answers

Steal back the burrito from the patient, hurting them to get it if necessary, and take a bite out of it myself. Then laugh at the patient and the visitor, then if either took umbrage, I'd spit at them both, then turn around and fart at them, belching, of course. Fart, belch, spit, fart belch, spit, fart, belch, spit. Then I would grab the umbilical cord of the next neonate and swing it around by the umbilicus over my head and then give it a throw! Please don't ask me stupid inappropriate questions? Thanks. Less

I think the most difficult question I was asked was what was the biggest mistake I think I made in my personal life, and I was also asked the same for my professional life.

3 Answers

I don't believe that technically/legally, an interviewer can ask anything, especially in the nature of this question, about your personal life. It's one thing to ask someone if the follow the Reds or Bengals, but to ask them about a failure in their personal life? I find that very inappropriate. For all that interviewer knows, something tragic or devastating could have recently, or quite in the past, happened that the person assumes responsibility for, whether warranted or not. A job interview is NOT the place to air everyone's dirty laundry. It may have cost me the job, but I would have politely declined to answer about my personal, that it was not an appropriate topic for a job interview and had no bearing on my job, but that I would gladly answer the second part of the question, and then proceed to do so. I'm glad I declined an interview at UC for a CRC position. Less

How long after applying online were you first contacted?

I had to think carefully before answering. I answered both the questions separately, as they were asked. However, they were both related, as a decision I made in personal life had affected my professional life. I was honest in my response and I think that surely helped me. Less
