Awkward job interview
"I had a job interview with a CEO, in person, despite Covid," writes Tipsy Traveller on Reddit. "I was super nervous, as per usual. Maybe even more than usual, because I really wanted this job. I tried to calm myself down but by the time the interviewer showed up I could literally feel my heartbeat in my throat. He (50ish) walked down the stairs towards me, in his nice suit, but stopped halfway down. I figured the interview would take place upstairs, so I got up to meet him. And as I was walking up the stairs towards him, he put his arm up.. and his elbow out. And my brain just sort of went 'ERRORRR!'. I suppose it could have only meant two things. It could have meant (A) 'Please take my arm, milady, so I can escort you to the room as if we're strolling down the promenade together', or (B) 'Please give me an elbow bump, since we can't shake hands', which is really not an uncommon gesture at all in the Netherlands. So what did I do? Yes, I went with option A and I eagerly locked arms with this strange man that I'd never met before in my life, as if saying 'yes, good sir, let's go for that stroll'. And then we just stood there! Arm in arm, halfway up the stairs, sheepishly staring at each other. I wanted the earth to swallow me whole. I just didn't know what to do next and I don't think he'd fully understood what'd happened, so neither of us moved. When he'd finally gathered his senses, he said 'I eh.. meant to give you an elbow-bump?', after which I quickly put as much distance between us as I could and mumbled 'Right! Right, yes, that makes much more sense'. Because it did, let's face it."
I hear you bruh
"This is one of those "picking holes in movies" types of communication like when Gandalf wore a watch in Lord of the Rings," warns Mark Nutsford. "Whoever designed the latest McDonalds ad didn't do their homework. The ad features an elderly couple and she hands him a note. She says "you gave me this when I was 13 so cough up." The note says "IOU $3". I'm picking that the lady in question is about 80 but even if she was only 70 she would have been 13 in 1964 and decimal currency wasn't introduced to New Zealand until 10 July 1967."
