I don't think telling the person interviewing you that you lost a game of hide and seek with your keys is a smart thing to do.

Petepoop - Really? So all of those American economists talking about how bad the American job market is doing are just plain wrong? Thank goodness we have you to clear things up for us. Thank you so much.

Honestly, petepoop, if your profile says yolo and "jb is life", every time you comment it should say "(-1000) faggot buried, click to show anyway"

Petepoop if you live in "yolo, california" and your profile says "jb is life" you probably shouldn't comment. You came to the wrong neighborhood, MF!

That will not work because the interviewer gave the job to someone that was prepared, organized, and ready for the opportunity that many Americans aren't getting right now.

Yea hopefully. But unfortunately it was his/her fault, so there's not much OP can say. Or you could lie and say you were attacked by killer pandas.

It sounds like a good solution, but unfortunately it's little things like that an employer takes note of. Punctuality, organisational skills, it doesn't matter if you are actually in control of the situation at all. It all adds up. As an employer, I'd look at it as OP being poor at organisation, even the simple task of keeping track of keys. It seems unfair but the job market is so competitive these days, employers are very picky.

I've used that threat; it didn't work. They still manage to drunk dial my contacts when I'm not looking.

I'm assuming they're drunk. I look at my text history, and there's no other explanation. "Yur keys so sexy. Tubular gilded yum. Tell her Im the skeleton key that can fit right in n unlock her heart ;) ;)" Note: that was almost too painful to write, both by the grammar and punctuation, and the pure disturbing content.

As an interviewer, I hate it when people are way late and decide not to call. I might have other interviews or paperwork to do. If you call and tell me you are running late, I can tell you want the job. OP, always, always, always call if you even think you might be late.

Hopefully you still went to the interview, sometimes the interviewer runs late also. If not you could at least explain, who knows sometimes persistence pays off and what looked ugly can turn into a wonderful opportunity.

Actually a phone that is completely turned off is the master. A silenced phone at least has the potential to light up.

I find it really ball-wrenching when one puts something in a place where you are bound to never forget, but then you forget it....

Not everyone has access to a bus route near their house. The closest bus route from my house for example is about 20 miles away.
