Is there a job that requires you to have an excess amount of snark and a desired to goof off as much as possible?

Last job interview I had the interviewer told me to stick a sharpie in my pooper and write the time and date on my tits.

Considering the geometry involved, I'll assume you were applying to Cirque du Soleil?

And follow-up: Did you get the job??

There's the old joke about needing to be a little bit autistic or OCD to be a good developer or QAer, but once you have actual diagnoses, that's probably a red flag.

Article praises their ability to follow instructions precisely, but that's actually the opposite of what I think makes a good QAer.  The guys I work with now demand precise instructions to mask that they don't know what they're doing, so maybe the autistics are different, but I doubt it.  If I have to spend that much time defining instructions for you to that precision, I might as well go a few more steps and automate the tests.  They'll run faster and won't nag me while I'm trying to do work.

A good QA person needs to be able to look at the specs and figure out where the parts you forgot to specify are, and come up with new and clever ways to break things.  Mechanical turks aren't that valuable.

I'm confused.  Were you supposed to accomplish that with one Sharpie, or two?

The order is wrong, FIRST you write time and date on tits, THEN you stick it in your pooper. It only requires one sharpie.

People with autism naturally gravitate to computer jobs; you don't have to go out of your way to find them.

I wouldn't hire QA people off the street simply because they have it on their resume.  If you are anal about the industry and are a candidate, QA is the consolation prize.  QC is the first prize.  DBA is the grand prize if you like technology yet don't know too much about either tech or the industry, but get a high off learning and have a potentially fatal disorder which allows you to see time.

You passed the test! You're hired. As soon as you take that sharpie out of your ass.

If you want real autism, stop by /mlp/ or /jp/ some time.

I had to do that too but I failed because I refused to shave my chest first.

Why is Kwame suddenly spreading across the threads? Is it punishment for the mini tantrum he threw in other thread?

Sometimes following instructions precisely is a great way to misunderstand them.

You're hip, subby, I'll give you that.

Are they also looking for people with ADH.......ooooo, shiny!

While this seems very laudable on the surface, I shudder to think what happens the first time Lumbergh tells Raymond he is going to need him to come in on Saturday, not to mention if a certain red Swingline goes missing...

I applied to "Tits or Get Out" Inc. /b/ was tremendously helpful in looking over my resume.

That's a test to see if you're smart enough to NOT insert the cap end.

Most Farkers and Redditors are just as bad as b-tards, and are more than likely the same people in a lot of cases.
