Good answers to annoying questions
A discussion of 'interview questions' arose at Amber last night.
One of the things that was discussed was 'good' answers to annoyings questions. The particular question in question (as it were) was:

"Tell me 3 bad points about yourself". (Or loosely paraphrased).

So far, our best answers (mostly thanks to mhw) being:

"One, I can only thing of two things."
"Two, actually I lied about that."
"Three, I can't count either."

"Last time someone asked me that, I jumped up on the desk and strangled them with their own tie. But I'm getting better now."

"I don't suffer you gladly".


So, I thought I thought I might try and do a few LJ entries about the subject. If you can think of a good (either from a line to use in an interview, or just funny) response to the above question, please post a comment.
If you can think of a similar 'difficult' interview question, please post that too.
Let us share the wealth of knowledge, so that nevermore may one be distracted by tough questions.

"Why do you want this job?" - clearly the answer for nearly everybody in the world is "Because food and rent cost money". Duh.

When you consider your last piece of work how can you have done that better?

Tell me about a time when you had a problem with one of your colleagues, why was that and how did you resolve it?

OR your colleague had a problem with you.

I remember being asked, 'how much do you want to be paid'. I very almost told them...

Fish


That should have them bemused for a few seconds...
