    I just got back from a second interview. The last question threw me, I never heard anyone ask this in an interview.

    "What is one question you would not want us to ask you?"

    I was thrown! I stumbled looking for something that would not make me look bad. I came up quickly with "What do you do for fun?" Kind of cheese but I turned it into a geek answer (as I am a full blow geek). I said I like to work for fun. Yeah, cheesy, I know. I went on to say how I would get bored at home sometimes at 10pm and head off to work on the servers or something. I have been thinking about that question since I left and still cannot think of a question I would not want to be asked.

    So, after my long-winded intro, what is the one question you do not want anyone to ask you?

    Well, after much thought I have decided that I would not like someone to ask me THIS question:
    "What is one question you would not want us to ask you?"

    I went for an interview at a College and the Principal asked the first question:
    What makes you think you can do this job?

    I didn't even pause:
    The fact that you gave me an interview. If you don't think I can do it, then what am I doing here?

    :lmao::lmao: That's true. I've only had one interview in my life, got the job on site :mrgreen: I work at a gas station, pretty good for a 14 year old hey? Anyway I actually can't think of anything I wouldn't want him asking. Strange question, will ponder this one...
