This shyish writer came in for an interview. He had a dry sense of humor.
On his resume he had a job listed where he said he did Closed Captioning for Porn Films. I thought oh so funny, guy has a sense of humor and a warped brain. Excellent.
But then the rest of the time, he was very serious about the interview. Which made me think, "Wait a minute, maybe that was a real job and he wasn't just messing around." So I backtracked and asked him if he was serious. Yes! He was serious.
Went through his book, great writer, smart thoughts.
I was still convinced he was messing with me on the job. "So" I said, "what did you write when you are closed captioning these films. The sound effects?"
"Ya" he said, "We had this drop down menu and we chose the sound that was most appropriate."
Still completely deadpan.
Still have no clue if the job was legit or he just had an entertaining and memorable resume.
Still makes me laugh when I remember that entire scene. The jobs that people have that you have no clue even exist. Or do they. Gaaah!
Have a great week.
Remember your fun stories and tell them.
