My worst interview came when, after explaining the work, the interviewer
took me back to meet "the girls." She took me to a conference room where
"the girls" were waiting, then introduced me, saying in a teacherly voice
". . . the girls have each written a question to ask you. . . "

I couldn't get out of there fast enough, it was like being a visitor in 6th
grade. So, perhaps this was a good interview. I knew I wouldn't fit.
