Big Moves


#1

Just interviewed a guy who went for a fist bump when I was showing him out. Big move…

Made any big moves lately?


#2

Did that make you more or less likely to hire him.

Think carefully…


#3

A massive one yesterday morning.


#4

Sorry, misread the thread.


#5

Got my new desk installed at great expense and hassle in the office and have moved it up by approximately 6cm from previous height


#6

There is no way that person was getting either a fist bump or the job…


#7

:smiley: I massively respect that you rejected the bump ngl


#8

Hard to tell which of your main hobbies this is - liquid poos or Netrunner.


#9

Neither. It was extremely solid.


#10

You left him hanging :grinning: You’re ice cold Ant.


#11

Me and my mate bought a place together a while back and one place we looked at the Estate Agent showed us a hatch to the roof and said “you can go up there to smoke weed”.

My mate was wearing a suit and I was just in my usual cool and sexy as fuck attire not in a tied died t-shirt with a cannabis leaf on it.

To answer your question, I’ve started swearing in the office like a Really Cool Guy who doesn’t play by the Rules.

Also my boss does it so it’s fine


#13

Just forced a normal handshake instead. Literally cannot fathom the thought process of someone who makes the choice to go for a fist bump at the end of a job interview.


#14

Ooft so you were fully rock and paper for a few seconds?


#15

I cannot believe you didn’t fist bump him back, no fist bump, no job.


#16

declining a bump is, in itself, a power move


#17

Yeah, it felt like a very long time and I was maintaining eye contact throughout…


#18

You’re such a square, Ant


#19

Sounds like this guy missed out on a proper borefest at square snooze city!

Ant interviewing as well, the man is on a power high right now.
