  • Weird interview questions

    my sisteerr just had a job interview, for a hotel desk job mind you, and she was asked a werid/unanswerable question. It was " you are in seattle, you have a cup of coffee and a ruler, how do you figure out how tall the space needle is?"

    Anyone know what your supposed to say to that?

    Ps if there are any weird typos in this, my dog ran across the keybord and Im to lazy to see what happend.

    if you are having coffee in Seattle so you are likely in a starbucks that has wifi internet meaning there should be someone that has a computer. Give them the cup of coffee and ask to borrow their computer in which you can google.

      well what they want is a prodcutive answer, i do not know the answer to this one, but one that is smilar to this is, you have book and a cell phone, and you have an hour, which one do you pick. the answer to that one is, you spend a half hour on the phone the other half reading.

                  The ruler is there to distract you. Just go to the top of the building. Open a window, and spill the hot coffee out the window. Then count how many mississippi's it takes before you hear a scream from somebody who got hot coffee all over themselves. I think all you is a little algebra after that.
