I had my in-person interview at the donut shop today . I showed up early only to be told that despite them scheduling my interview for 11:30 AM it was actually at 12:30 PM and I would have to wait. Somehow I overcame my urge to turn around and go home, and sat down to wait.
At 12:00 – seconds before I ordered half a dozen donuts and left – somebody finally came out to apologize and give me a cup of coffee. Then, she had the gall to ask to see the email they sent me scheduling the interview for 11:30 AM.
The interview itself was fine. The owner ignored my questions about the overall direction of the company and instead asked me to pitch individual twitter posts. I think I came up with a few solid pitches in the 5 seconds I had to think of something.
As I went to leave, they gave me a free half-dozen of donuts as an apology, so it was pretty worth it.
- To prep for my interview I stayed up until 3:00 AM to watch Coraline. It was fine, not great.
- I spent far too much of my day in cars. I took Lyft to and from my interview, then I took a Lyft from Franconia-Springfield to TopGolf, then I shared an Uberpool from TopGolf back to DC. I hate cars.
By the Numbers
Healthy Eating: 1/10. I only ate donuts today.
True Love: 2/10. I trekked all the way to TopGolf in Alexandria for a girl despite being terrible at golf. Luckily, she was terrible too. Either way it was a good night.
Sanity: 8/10. I deserve a gold fucking medal for not storming out of that donut shop.
