Yes, that is the most predictable blog title of the day.
It is amazing how everyone I know chooses to ping me today morning
when I am in the midst of a phone interview!!!!
And just when you are wondering, why the heck would I simply not sign out
of the chat then, to all you clever people I want to tell I was also required to be
on IM for possibly using it as a means to look up detailed questions during the interview. So there!
Me: (Busy on chat)
Me: (Still silent)
Me: (Oh God..Still silent)
A: You there?
Me: (Ok this has to stop) I am on phone
Dad: Hey you should go out buy a mask
Me: (What? Still silent)
Me: I am on phone
A: Who on phone?
Me: Job interview
A: Oh ok ok..TYT (take your time)
Dad: A guy from TX got the flu to Hyderabad. Have you got a mask or not?
Me: I am in a job interview. Brb.
XYZ: blah blah blah. Ooops, sorry wrong window :D
Me: Oh my goddddddddddddd!!!!!! x-(
At this point I was even contemplating to request my interviewer if I can go Invisible x-( Gosh!
Thankfully all the pings stopped for some time.
I should have put on a "I am in an interview" status. But decided against it. That would certainly lead to many other type of pings. Probably "Which company?", "When?", "What role?" or even a "Congrats". Who knows..
PS: No offense Dad and A :)
