Go in shake their hand firmly, be funny but not too funny that you make him crap his pants and if you're not funny don't even try because shit will just be awkward.

If all else fails Chopper Reid as an excellent guide:



Thanks, I may just use that.

Last bit of advice: don't pretend to know anything you don't.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Well? Huh

It went well.

Sorry, Muff's puzzle knocked what little synapses I still had firing off out my ear...

Now the waiting game...

No no no! You don't get off that easily. WE WANT SPECIFICS! Yes

RE: Job interview tomorrow: pretending I know shit when I don't
I studied for a few hours questions and appropriate answers to interview questions... I got asked most of the ones I studied. I came to the realization that the job description would probably have me crying in the corner in no time (I would freak out too if my computer was malfunctioning, and probably be out for blood, and as Customer Rep, it's gonna happen)...

What can I say? The interview went well.

Okey dokey, that's more like it! Wait...you don't want the job?

It's not that I don't want the job, it's more that my anxiety would skyrocket and well, that's not good for me or the company (and I luff the company... and me more).
