Today, I had a job interview. The only moment I impressed the interviewer was when I talked about drama. He started to talk about a play I hadn't seen, but I decided to agree on everything he was saying. Suddenly he said, "the play doesn't actually exist." I silently left the room. FML

At least OP didn't decide to be a drama queen about the trick the interviewer pulled. P.S. I've done similar things to get people going, only to pull the rug out from under them. I once managed to convince my friend that Gypsies are of a different species from Homo sapiens. :P

Silently like a ninja with the smoke grenade exit? If so that act alone would make me want to hire you

[email protected] ur replies are always so weird

weirdly awesome :D

29- Don't hate, appreciate.

You big dummy OP.

That's why you don't lie during an interview.

In my opinion op hasn't even started the corporate chain but already is willing to do anything, including lying to the interviewer, to get what she/he wants. A true fucking modern business person.

That's true; business is like that. And who hasn't said "oh yeah, I know what you're talking about" when really they didn't? It happens...

It's not as effective as "Oh I don't know about that one yet" and then asking questions about it. Much better to show your interest in furthering your knowledge base instead of just being a sheep to be led.

Or just say "Oh, I didn't hear of that one yet" and then ask questions about it. Much better to show that you are interesting in furthering your knowledge rather than just being a sheep to be led.

A study has shown that 80% of the people have lied during an interview.

80% of the time it works all the time!

57 studies have shown that 90% of cited statistics are made up on the spot.

Caught! Haha!

10 - You just contradicted yourself. If it works all the time, then it'd be 100%

60, you are a moron.

Should have just told him that you weren't familiar with that particular play. It's always good to be honest in a job interview.

Thanks Captain Hindsight!

61- Because I totally know OP and could have told them beforehand...yea. Besides that SHOULD be common sense.

Did you get the job?

Haha what a smart guy

Seriously... you could've just said "You know, I've never seen or heard of that one but is it any good?" or something like that

That's what you get for lying. Idiot.
