Confessions from an Interview

"On this one interview, for a small startup tech company, the CEO's dog was present while I was interviewed. The dog became especially interested in my leg. I kept shuffling and moving to protect myself from the dog, but the dog just wouldn't quit. The interviewer took no notice of the dog at all. I tried to maintain my composure, but inside I was silently panicking. How could the interviewer not see this? Was this some sort of test of my concentration? I did my best to ignore it and went on with the interview. It was the strangest interview experience I'd ever had. Let me tell you, being assaulted by the CEO's dog during the interview is really not fun but it does make for a great interview story."
