“I didn’t choose them, they chose me”

So, ┬ájust when I thought my Hitchcock Blogs readership may be on the downslope, I get a series of interesting text messages from a fellow student and friend of mine (unsure why) BEGGING to be interviewed. After I tried to explain that this wasn’t a newspaper/magazine/traditional publication, this conversation happened…

(The person will remain anonymous)

(So I started to consider meeting in person, to make them more comfortable, and then…

…they just started talking.)

(Clearly they think this is a dating profile interview?)

(“That’s a great question!” I didn’t ask them a question.)

(They’ve thought WAY too far into this)

(WoW that was quick!)

(Interview tip: if someone asks you to “name one thing,” don’t name five)

(I had to ask, it was all just too much)

(They actually did send me a selfie. And in the classiest way possible: via Snapchat)

photo11

(Well, they’re “people” didn’t send me anything, so clearly if this was a real interview they wouldn’t have gotten the job)

Moral of the story: Don’t mess with me. I am a reporter with a smart phone and I am not afraid to use it if you give me an interview over text message.

 

(Real talk though, this person knows I put this up. But still, NOT scripted in the least).

 

 

NOW: Take a poll!

Do you think my anonymous friend should receive the award he thinks he was interviewing for?
