Interviews, Interviews, Interviews!!

Jennybean was kind enough to send me some interview questions, so I'm going to answer these, and hope that I don't repeat any of the answers in the last two that I've gotten..

Here it goes.

Oh, by the way:

There are easy ways to get interviewed.

Just ask me in comments, and I'll email you a list of 5 questions for your interview.

Then, later on, you can post and link back to this page.

Simple, easy, and it's actually kind of fun as well..

Anyway, on to the interview!!

1. How did you meet your wife? When did you know she was "the one"?

My wife actually started by chasing me! I was running Karaoke at a bar, and she asked my brother’s girlfriend at the time if I was single.. Thus, she started stalking the places where I’d run the systems, and would conveniently show up where I was scheduled to show up! A match made in heaven, if you ask me!

2. What personality differnces do you see in your children?

Heh.. Is there a limit?

Let’s see. My oldest is the lawyer of the family. He needs to have each and every part of a parental decree laid out in no uncertain terms. If anything is left ambiguous, he’s more than willing to take advantage of it. Reminds me of my younger self in many ways.

My daughter is the drama queen and center stage prima-donna. She loves to dance. She loves to sing. Everything she says or does just happens to be over-the-top. There’s nothing really shy or bashful about her until she meets strangers. Then she huddles into a corner and waits to see if you’ll be nice or mean.

My youngest is the flirt. He’s VERY touchy-feely, and loves numbers. If you were to allow him to sit at a table all day and count change, he’d be in a minor level of heaven. Give him some milk and the occasional hug, and you’ll never hear from him until the change is all counted, stacked, and written down.

3. What is your favorite part of your job? Least favorite?

Favorite part of the job has got to be the problem solving. Getting in there and finding out why something won’t tick. When you solve it, and get it running, you become “superman” in the facility for a while.

Least favorite? The managers who decide that they’re better than you because of the title. I’ve complained about them plenty in my blog.

4. Weird stuff happens sometimes. What is the strangest thing that has ever happened to you?

Strangest? That’s got to be the time I had a manager complain about her “cup holder”. Yeah. She was using the DC tray to hold her coffee cup, and would spill it every time she booted the machine.

5. Do you have a stupid human trick or any sort of strange talent? Please do share!

Stupid? I don’t think so. I can play piano, and I sing a bit. I also adore reading..
Wait.. I do have one quirk!
I can crack the knuckles of my big toes on command. LOUDLY. It really annoys my wife when I do it to excess at times unthinkingly.

Well, there's my interview.

Hope you enjoy, and have a GREAT week!

I think it's amazing how different kids can be. My oldest is the People pleaser/worrier. If there's something to worry about, she will worry it to death.
My "center" child is much like yours, except for the 80 year old Jewish lady from Jersey forgot to jump out before reincarnation. She really does act like an 80 year old woman. And she's smarter than all of us.
My son is a flirt and he is going to have a great time when he and his sisters friends get older.

I loved the cupholder thing! Some people have no excuse for stupid!

oh and side note my mom reads you all the time. She was cracking me up on Friday talking about your wifes blog, and the drama over there. I will keep the rest of her views private but it was funny hearing her ask me about it.

Jobs are great.. it's always the PEOPLE that make it suck. :)

That whole stalking thing is totally true! There is just something about a guy that can sing!

Oh...and glad to hear my blogs are being read and talked about! I will TRY to be a little more civil....

Tracy: yeah, tell me about it! I LOVED your answers to the interview questions I gave you. Hope you enjoyed them!

JAG: Ok, I'll let you play along. I'll find some questions, and send them your way! Hope your mom keeps reading.. I enjoy any and all attention I can get!

Cinni: Yeah. If it weren't for people, I really wouldn't have much to complain about, so this blog of mine would be about half as full as it is now..

Hon: Yeah, something about stalkers just says "marry me!", doesn't it?
