Silicon Republic has a story about strange interview questions asked by some of the most highly rated companies in the world. You know: the “why are manholes round?” (not all are!) and “how many golf balls can you put in a mini?” (why are you wasting your employers time putting golf balls in a car?”).
Here’s how I would respond to such a question in an interview …
“Why are you wasting my time? Thank you. Good bye”. And I might just blog and tell the story to everyone I know too … *evil laugh*
