( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

      So why do people feel compelled to display about as much emotion as they do when filing their fingernails? Is this supposed to be "professionalism"?
I once intereviewed a candidate for a Unix Engineering position whom I asked if he wanted a cup of coffee. I thought that I was being nice and thought he'd loosen up a bit and after all what Unix professional doesn't drink lots caffeine on a constant basis?

His answer to me floored me. I expected maybe "yeah that would be great" or "no thanks I don't touch the stuff" or something like that. Nope! His answer to me was "No! I came to interview for a job not drink coffee and engage in small talk!"

Needless to say the interview did not progress too much further. I expect some social graces from co-workers...
