BUT then the phone rang at Carl's desk. It was our head of accounting calling Carl from her desk upstairs. Here is the conversation in a nutshell.
S - "so Carl, did you see the last candidate that I just interviewed?"
Carl - "ummmm, yeah...why"
S - "well....she's really qualified, one of the best we've met with. and she has a great personality and I think she would be a great fit"
Carl - "ok, she was really pretty so you should just hire her then...(laughing) just kidding, what's up?"
S - "that's my concern. Is she too good looking? Will she be a distraction here in the office?"
Carl - "uhhhhh, what? i've never really thought about that....."
followed by a moment of silence....
Kinda weird right?
I wonder if they had the same conversation after I left my interview...
