Friend was having a bbq and his grill wasn’t working. So they robbed an industrial kitchen and spent the next few hours grilling meat. I told him I wasn’t even going to interview him and that he has the job. He ended up being a ROCKSTAR.

Agreed. There are cases where a high performer has an unlucky day and won’t be on time or be as presentable as desired, but these are outliers and this is usually a sign of carelessness. When there are fifty people interviewing for a position and all but one show up on time, why should I waste my time with someone who can’t meet basic expectations?

Had a guy show up in jeans, t-shirt and very dirty sneakers. He proceeded to tell me that he was going to be able to bring a startup culture to our team (dude had no startup experience whatsoever). Also tanked his case.

Dating a shy guy, we have been on 4-5 dates, one even a long hiking trip. Makes me laugh, is caring and empathetic by nature, looks good. But no matter how close I go to him, brush his hands while walking, he doesn’t seem to make a move. My read is he is shy and one of the “nice guys”. Sexual chemistry is important for me, how do I make a move or get him to make one?
