Well, that was a weird job interview.
- One guy (of the two, the second one was perfectly nice) said he didn’t believe three of the four hobbies I mention on my CV were my actual hobbies (he was prepared to accept that I like baking but not knitting, and for some reason he didn’t believe that someone with an MA in Creative Writing might like reading and writing science fiction, wtf?)
- When I pulled out my Verdigris gloves as evidence, he said, “Tell your mum she knits very well.”
- He then went on to tell me he thought I wouldn’t enjoy the job. I asked what aspects of it he thought I wouldn’t enjoy, he looked surprised and babbled out what was basically a summary of part of the job description, I pointed out how I’d done very similar things at my old job and enjoyed them and he just looked a bit blank and drew the interview to a close.
- When I talked to the woman at the recruitment agency I applied through, she said she’d just got off the phone with the woman who was interviewed after me who also, quote, “had a bit of a weird interview”.
- I didn’t see any women working there except the receptionist.
I don’t think I’m getting this job, but that might be for the best.
THIS MADE ME CRY WITH JOY
This is perfection…
This is brilliant!
Oh my god, it really IS perfection
Anonymous asked: Um. Clint makes Steve and Bucky read Harry Potter. The Avengers all have very, very strong opinions about which house they get sorted into. Bucky thinks he's a Slytherin, but Steve says he's a Hufflepuff through and through.
"This isn’t a legitimate classification system," said Steve angrily, throwing the book onto the couch next to Clint. "This is bullshit. They’re children, for cripe’s sake.”
Clint’s eyebrows rose to comical levels.
"You can’t just isolate different children or—or— or try to predetermine their characters at age eleven," Steve said, thoroughly angry. "And you certainly can’t condemn an entire fourth of your school’s population to a villainy house, what the hell is that?”
He started to pace.
"As if people never change! As if there’s no moral or ethical growth after age eleven!”
Bucky reached over Clint and picked up the book. Clint gave him a look and he shrugged.
"Hell, if it makes Steve this angry, I gotta check it out," he explained.
"This isn’t a basis for education!" Bucky shouted. "Where are the art classes, huh? Kids this age should have access to art classes."
"Exactly!" shouted Steve. "Maybe a little less institutionalized racism and a little more arts education, am I right?"
Clint buried his head in his hands.
