I didn't really qualify, but I applied for a dream position anyway. I didn't get to say much at the interview. She did all the talking in such a tempo that I sort of lost track of the conversation. Then she said something about an ambulance and I said: "What?"

"Yeah, the last guy had to go to the er, he was so stressed out at the job. Anyway, I think you'll be perfect. We'll call you."

She didn't though, so I called them a few weeks later, prepared for bad news.

"Yeah, sorry for not calling you back. Someone died, so we've been quite busy. Call NN to sort out your schedule."

I did turn out the be real good at the job, and I enjoyed it immensely. I have no idea how she figured that out though.

    So... First someone ends up the ER, and later on someone dies? Would be easy to conclude that the stress level there was unhealthy!

    @haabe yeah, I was a bit worried. It was stressful, by nature, but manageable. The was unrelated, as it turned out.

    Don't apply to any more companies, you don't want any more deaths on your hands!
