Knock Their Socks Off

“I’m at a loss,” Dean said. “I’ve got my final interview for that dream job in San Jose on Tuesday and there’s a goddam blizzard outside. The roads are impassable and the all of the airports in New England are closed. This is a huge quandary because the majority of the hiring team is scheduled to be there.”

“I’m sure they are prepared for something like this,” Dean’s wife Anna said. “Text the recruiter and see what the options are. I’d be surprised that a high tech company like that couldn’t accommodate a video interview if you tell them that you’re snowed in.”

About 45 minutes later, Dean came into the kitchen and hugged his wife. “You’re as sharp as a hawk’s eyes,” he said. “The recruiter said it would be fine to conduct the interview over Zoom under the circumstances and he applauded my honesty and ingenuity.”

“Yay,” screamed Anna. “I’m going to start consolidating our stuff that we’ll be taking with us when we move from New England to Northern California.”

“Wait,” Dean said. “Don’t jinx us, Anna. I’ve still got to make it through the interview.”

“I’m not worried, Dean,” Anna said. “You’ll knock their socks off.”

    I always forget that your stories are fictional. Your writing is so realistically spot on!
