      Some would argue that the worst kind of interview is the one that goes well but you hear nothing, maybe the interviewer was having 'fun' with him...

          Nope the interview still went well in his eyes, it's the outcome that's bad.

                Brilliant.

                I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

                  Back in the late 90s an agent put me forward for a contract at Jaguar's R&D place in Coventry. At that time I'd yet to pass my driving test (I finally took it in 2001), but the gig seemed like a decent one and I lived one street away from a stop on an express bus route to the city, so I figured a bit of early rising would see me right - it wasn't far to walk from the city centre once I got there.

                  When I arrived for the interview and was shown in, the first thing the senior engineer asked me was how the drive down had been. I cheerfully explained that I didn't drive, but the trip by public transport had been fine.

                  He immediately got all arsey about this, apparently assuming I didn't drive because of some ecological agenda. He started making various sarcastic comments, ending with some crap along the lines of them being a very green organisation because it was their company colour - "Racing green, that is" - before the younger guy managed to get him back to the technical requirements for the role.

                  It turned out they were looking for a hard core Perl guy. I'd told the agent that I only had a bit of trivial experience with Perl, but he'd assured me that it was just a nice-to-have. Things quickly went even further downhill, and I was shown the door in short order.

                  Still, I got to see Coventry, which everybody should do once, in case they come back as a town planner in a future life
