Had a skype interview yesterday...

> prepared for interview, checked internet and all
> home internet died literally 1 minute before call
> started interview using phone hotspot
> phone hotspot died in 1/3 interview duration
> used mom's phone's hotspot
> died in 2/3 interview duration
> oh shit
> went out to phone company's office to get more data
> half way to the office, mom calls: home internet is working!
> yaay! goes back home
> nop, internet isn't working (glitch in mom's phone which showed it to be working (wifi symbol))
> goes back to the office
> gets phone recharged (office people were SO slow 😑)
> gets back home
> continues and finishes the interview...

10/10 will do again 😂😂😂😂

The interviewer was quite patient, and waited for me to get back home (he called me 2-3 times to get a heads up)

Lol this was honestly THE most exciting and fun interview experience for me yet!
The interview questions were pretty easy btw (programming)
Waiting for result now...

    Wait, why didn't you just plug the phone up and turn the hotspot back on? I generally plug mine before I even sit down to connect to it.

    @Electrux ah ok I read as the whole phone died, which i guess would make it all the more curious how you would get a call from your mom but I was to busy trying to figure out the first question I asked 😂.

    Good God that's someone you want to work for. They're understanding.

    I had an interview with company X. I drive to location and ask for Bob.
    "Sorry sir no Bob here."
    Call next location for X.
    "Sorry sir no Bob here."
    Call literally all stores for X.
    "Sorry sir no Bob."
    Find the application number I applied to. Go to that location.
    Manager helps me for half an hour to try and figure out where I belong. No luck.
    Finally I go home and pull up the call log.

    Turns out company Y called but I misunderstood the person.

    I showed up to Y an hour and a half later and the dude was totally ok with it.

    @Stuxnet You know, up until you said you misunderstood the caller, I was just assuming you had taken a government job 😂
