Not too long ago I had a job interview. I had finally come on a job that I really really wanted and I searched this place on the internet to learn all I could about it. The night before the interview I went over the usual questions that were normally asked to make sure my answers sounded intelligent and that I had really learned about this place. I wanted to make a good impression. My interview was for 9:30am the next morning so I went to bed early so I would look well rested and eager to be sitting in front of a potential employer.
I got up early and had my shower, did my hair, applied a small amount of make-up and got dressed. I arrived 15 minutes before my interview showing that I really was eager to join the employer’s team. The interview was going perfectly that is until I felt a rumble in my stomach. I was trying not to shift around too much in the chair. I was answering all her questions without batting an eye when the unthinkable happened.
I could feel it building up and thought to myself …dear god nooooooooo not now please. I tried shifting again and could feel it deep inside. She was skimming over my resume when all of a sudden this loud rumble filled the air. I closed my eyes and prayed that that noise was only heard by me but when I opened my eyes I knew it wasn’t. That’s right. I farted. It wasn’t a quiet poof either…it was a loud rumble. She was classy enough not to say anything but I could see that she was holding back a giggle. All I could say was “my goodness, excuse me” with as much dignity as I could muster. She smiled and said nothing. We continued the interview and after it was over she shook my hand as I departed. She said that she would be in touch. She called a few days later and said that she had filled the position but would keep my resume on hand in case things didn’t work out. I can’t help but wonder if that puff of air that snuck out was the real reason?
