Funniest/weirdest thing you've ever done in an interview

It wasn't at an interview for a job, but when I went to get a consult with a doctor, he had to look at an extremely marked up new patient chart because I found a LOT of errors in spelling and grammar. :/ That is something I'd likely do at a business interview as well... so I count it in this case.

 

FYI, I'm an editor, so now at least if I do that, it's because it's my job xD

OH MY GOSH.

 

I had just eaten a cookie in the waiting room, right? It's allergy season and of course my allergy medication had not kicked in yet. I go into the interview room and as soon as I sit down, I sneeze into my elbow....

 

cookie chunks all over my elbow..... it was bad.

Hah that's quite funny. At least snot didn't come out. That would have been much worse. I can see going in for a job interview and sneezing all over your elbow but more than just cookie chunks coming out. That's pretty good. Personally I haven't been interviewed very many times so there's not much for me to share personally.

I had one at whs Smith once. It is more or less a store in the UK that sells, magazines, food, items and art stuff. This one had a library too.. I asked the stupid question at my interview, do they intend on buying more books (considering the shelves were stalked) I paniced and that's the best I could come up with for a question to the interviewer lol.

I tapped a pencil on the table because I couldn't figure out what to do with my fingers during the panel interview. I'm sure it didn't contribute well to their overall impression of my skills during conversation. It was an awkward setting and I couldn't think of what to do with my fingers and I figured it was an easier thing than to tap the table or my thighs.

They asked me if i watched tv shows and ended up talking about anime, they thought that i just mention 2 or 3 but i ended up mentioning 30 or something without even noticing lol, of course i wasn't selected because they might think that i'll end up watching anime during work.

 

I only had 5 job interviews in my life and got selected in 3 of them, i think i'm lucky lol.
