As in 'throwing up a'.

Is there a stupider interview question than "where do you see your self in ten years?" And while you're thinking on that one, is there a stupider answer than the one I gave today? Honesty is not always the best policy, it seems. Even in the legal field, shock me, shock me, shock me.

Maybe I should have been completely honest and gone with the suggested "middle-class, middle-weight, getting paid and driving an SUV," which has the dual benefit of being largely true and perhaps flattering the interviewer as he or she will think "hey, that sounds like me. He wants to be just like me! Sign him up!"

We'll see.

"What makes you special" and "What are your greatest weaknesses" are contenders for the Dumb Question Title.... but you know I have to ask about your answer: was it too ambitious, to unambitious or just irrelevant to the interview process?

One one of my interviews, I told the person I thought that was a dumb question. I proceeded to answer it, but I preceded it with my opinion.

I still got an offer. But, you know, I'm Rick James, bitch.
