I've never been in a position to hire anyone, unless you count the temporary employees I occasionally contract to fetch my dinner or pour my beer. This is a shame, because I think I'd make a great job interviewer. Bottom Shelf Industries has no immediate plans for expansion, but I've compiled a list of questions for hypothetical applicants just in case the day comes.
'Smirnoff' on Serious Eats
It's finally turned winter in Boston, so I had to trade my bike in for a bus pass. This was initially devastating, but then I realized it was an excuse to get one of those superphones that prevent you from ever making accidental eye contact with a fellow human being. So that was good, until it led to more bad: You know all those people staring at their phones on the bus? I'd always assumed they were looking at porn or reading Serious Eats, but it turns out they're busy beating the hell out of me at Words with Friends, the fake Scrabble game that is disproving everything I thought I knew about the English language, things such as "Will has a firm command of it" and "Quok is not a word."
