Interviewer: So what are your skills?
Applicant: It’s on the resume
Interviewer: I want you to tell me!
Applicant: Then resume becomes irrelevant!
Interviewer: No, I want to hear it; it will take for me to read
Applicant: How can you be sure that the time taken by me to say is greater than the time taken by you to read!
Interviewer: Well isn't that obvious!
Applicant: Not to me!
Interviewer: So let’s say you are hired!
Applicant: Thank you! So I will start from tomorrow.
Interviewer: No just assume!
Applicant: OK! Why assume, you are authorized to give me a job right! And you just said that I am hired!

Interviewer: Assume that you are hired!
Applicant: By whom?
Interviewer: By me!
Applicant: OK. I assume that you have hired me.
Interviewer: Will you work for a little less!
Applicant: I will work less then!
Interviewer: No! Then we are not going to hire you!
Applicant: But why should I work more for less money, isn't that exploitation!
