During my last days at my nightmare company, I asked the management how the replacement hunt for a developer was going over lunch.

COO: Great! We've received lots of applications. Lots of potential there. One guy was even a rocket scientist.

Me: So why does he want to be a web developer? Did the rocket factory around the corner not work out? Or did he realize Finland's main exports are Moomins and not rockets?

    Reminds me of when you are house hunting..

    "Oh yes, we have loads of people wanting to buy this house!"


    "No one else has showed any interest!"

    Reminds me of when I applied for an IT job, hobbies included on my CV included 'fusion nuclear reactor design', and still I didn't get it !

    I guess that rocket scientist got it instead..

    @KAS89 Even worse, it was the Fashion industry.

    That's right, this guy was apparently going from rocket scientist to web developer for a fashion retail company.
