A friend of mine shared this anecdote about an interview, so I thought I’d share it on my blog.
PROSPECTIVE MANAGER: So, Fred, have you done much work in chemicals previously?
FRED: Oh, yes. Most of my working life has been in the chemicals field.
PROSPECTIVE MANAGER: We deal primarily with nitrate. I take it you know what nitrate is?
FRED: Oh, yes. It’s normally time and half.
