I would end off the interview by asking if interviewers wife is hot. In all seriousness, tell them why they should hire you.

PC vs Mac?
I just had a job interview which I think went pretty well until they asked if I would be ok to work with a PC instead of a Mac. They made clear there’s no option. That was kind of an unexpected blow. I don’t want to sound snotty, but I would be feeling pretty out my skin if I am forced to work with a PC. Comments? Suggestions?

Also, any advice on suggesting edits/dealing with a boss who’s a bad writer?
