    Some people just think the world revolves around them. It happens.

    I remember a few years ago. Mrs had an Aethetics business (Botox) and I'd handle the negotiations with local salons, spas etc about mrs doing work for their customers etc.

    One place I had an appointment one lunchtime to discuss such an arrangement. I was working about 10 mins drive away so it wasnt too bad.

    Sat there for about 15 mins in reception thinking hmm I've got to go back to work. Then receptionist then piped up - X says shes busy today now, she'll contact you again to reschedule.

    I was not impressed....

    I love it when the interviewer is late. It means they're probably disorganised, under-resourced, will probably feel guilty about inconveniencing me.

    In the event I get the gig they will probably be so poor at running projects that they will leave me to my own devices too. So they can rock up the later the better as far as I am concerned.

    Should I start a thread about this, I wonder? Others might find it interesting.

    ah a Positive Mental Attitude.

    Yep "where there is confusion there is overtime" as an old colleague always told me
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    Or they might be trying to find out how much nonsense you can take.
    Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

    Happened to me once for a permie job, last interviewer out of 3 separate interviews on the day was 30mins late.

    The previous interviewer kept coming back in every 5-10 minutes, offering me coffee, tech magazines to read, and apologising profusely for their colleague, who was stuck in a project meeting.

    When he finally arrived, he also apologised profusely, explained the meeting he'd been in, which led to me asking him more about his project, which in turn brought him into his questions, and it ended up being a decent interview.

    Didn't get the job in the end though
