    Hi Sandra...Actually after reading this. I have to disagree with your headline. The cup of coffee didn't cost you the job. The fact that you didn't want the job, which was obvious from the get go, did. It was a pleasant read, but I kept waiting for you to toss the coffee at the guy or something. :)

    Sandra, I've generally come to expect hard insight and no-nonsense examinations of the situation from you. But this time, I gotta ask....
    Don't you find it just a little ironic that you say, " I write back thanking him again for his time. But the rejection still stings..."?

    You label him a boor -- come on now, don't deny it -- for not asking how you liked your coffee. And you denigrated the rather primitive "start-up" office premises. And you say you didn't really want the job.

    So why the "sting"? Was it that you would have preferred to have him offer you the job so that YOU could turn him down?

    Having read some of your writings, I would have expected that once you decided the circumstances were not for you, you would have closed the door and walked away, never to think again of the jerk or his mediocre coffee.

    Just tweaking you a bit. :-)
    Pamela 🐝 Williams
    08/07/2017 #13 Pamela 🐝 Williams
    Couldn't help smiling...I know some real coffee snobs! I don't like most of the stuff you buy in the grocery, in fact the one in the 'red' bucket (if you're from the US you know the brand) gives me horrible jitters. I'm spoiled, there is one certain grind from Starbucks that I buy (I stock up when it's on sale) but I blame that on my daughter, she worked there for 3 years and we got a free pound of beans every week.
    I hate interviews, especially with someone like you describe. My last one went really well though I did feel like I was in an interrogation (me and 4 very strong minded men who knew their stuff!) and after 5 months I'm still enjoying the people and the work.
    When interviews are bad you'll know it in the first 5 minutes, sometimes sooner. I interviewed with a large clothing manufacturer (I'd give the name but everyone knows this company...all over the globe)and it was horrible. I was interviewed by a millennial and in her offhand way reminded me I wasn't a millennial in every other sentence. The offices were an ocean of dark gray ugly cubicles and walking down the endless aisles to the conference room I felt like I could suffocate in that building. The atmosphere was strange... I expected zombies to step out at any second.
    Surprise, surprise, extensive layoffs were announced just a few months later. Sometimes the greatest blessings are unanswered prayers :-) or not getting the job.
    I'm glad you had a positive interview...too many bad ones can be depressing

    #11 As far as my experience recalls, Hiring is a selection process, an elimination game, like war...no rules...only noise and much a do about nothing. Getting a job is almost a miracle like birth, we symetrically made our ways towards each other.
    At the end of the day, it is the recruiters' money. His calls, if he fails recruiting the right one, he lost his full year after six months, no productivity ahead.

    #10 Thanks, Stephan. Part of me thinks it was a case of a "bad day" maybe on both sides. But then, you are right - I would never dream of not asking someone how they take their drink. Not that I'm the most empathetic person, but it's just second nature. I wonder if it was some type of "snowflake test" that Kyle Reyes over on the Lumpy Kingdom keeps banging on about.... In other words, if someone asks for milk, they aren't going to work out because they're demanding. Sounds far fetched, but I watched a Youtube the other day of a podcast - the guys were saying they won't hire someone who doesn't tidy up after themselves after an interview, because it's usually a reflection of sloppy work later on. He claims to have observed this after thousands of interviews and several years... Not sure how I feel about it, but I'm going to make sure I offer to tidy from now on, just in case... ;)

    Great one, coffee is social usually. Now the story shows that the company guys had no empathy...so, not a big loss..they will never get satisfied by their choices...great time through the coffee steam to recognize the external signs of a company...high probability of a toxic culture. The good side of the coin? That experience gave birth to a great story teller!

    #3 Thanks, David. This is why I posted, to get a different perspective - as it's hard to examine one's own behavior sometimes and think, "actually, I could have handled that differently..." and maybe got a different result. Or not. The reason I didn't wait outside was because it was the hottest day of the year, I had just dropped my son to a nursery, and walked the rest of the way so was hot and flustered when I came in.You're right, that was enough to affect my demeanor and I should have found a loo and cooled down, something I'd normally do... but the building was very confusing and I'd not received any directions from the company as to how to find them. Still, lesson learned ;-) I'll be blogging some more on this topic, don't worry ;-)
