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.

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.
