The Interviews (TPL Story)

TPLStoryPic

Location: PT News building in the Busy City

The professor must start off and be dreadfully honest: I’ve never conducted an interview.

Now this may or may not be a shock to you, PF. See, it wasn’t a shock for me until I thought about it for a bit, bits, and little bits.

Then it became shocking.

So, I was in my office when the first lady came in.

V. Shnodgrate (our copy editor) came in with her. Nick and J. were out doing something somewhere. Otherwise, Nick would be doing the interviewing. It’s his job, after all, to hire new reporters. Shirker, see.

“PVJ,” Shnodgrate said.

And he said it diplomatically–which is good. Sometimes, he can be gruff about the edges. He’s been living for 62 years (oldest fellow in the company) and that’s a considerable time to practice diplomacy.

I bet he practiced.

Shnodgrate continued: “Ms. Julia Thompson for the reporter job we posted.”

“Ahh, yes,” I said, flopping the papers around on my desk. One has to look busy if one is the managing editor of a paper, you know.

“Come right in,” I said.

Shnodgrate frowned. “She’s already in.”

I looked up.

Julia was smiling and being quite polite.

“I see that,” I said. “I can tell because you’re both on this side of the door.”

“Then why did you ask? I’ve got work to do.”

And Shnodgrate left and shut the door.

Awkward silences occur when silence reigns unchallenged for a few seconds longer than it should be allowed to.

That’s why I never let it reign.

“Please, have a seat, Ms. Thompson.”

She sat, and this professor threw the first question out–like a weed from a whacker.

“Why would you like to work for PT News?”

Her blue eyes opened a bit widely at that, and she breathed in deeply.

Oh dear.

“Firstly, I need a job,” she began. “Secondly, PT News represents the news in a way unlike the competition. Thirdly, I just received my degree in journalism, so the bigger companies wouldn’t probably even think about hiring me. Fourthly”–I started to get nervous here–“I respect the principles that this company runs on!”

And she punctuated that thought with a bob of her head–and ponytail.

I was quiet for a bit, still processing, see.

“Well, then!” I said. “Very good. I shall let you know as soon as I interview the last person that applied–“

The door swung open.

It was Daddy Salami.

“Hey, turtle soup!”

“Mr. Salami…” I began. “What are you here for, I wonder?”

“The interview, cur-face. Didn’t ya get me papers?”

And this professor picked up ‘his papers.’

“It says Christiana John-Smith is–“

“That’s me,” he said. “Hehaha. If you’d known it was me, ya wouldn’t a hired me. Yup, I’ve come to work for PJ News.”

“PT News. And I’m not going to hire you anyway.”

This professor turned towards Julia Thompson.

“Madam, consider yourself hired.”

    ANYONE Is better than DS. :-P

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2015 at 21:16

      I agree!

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 October 6, 2015 at 03:04

        X-P
        I can’t wait until you get your paper back and I can start working there! It sounds like a pretty fun environment. ;-)
        Also, I got a call from Tracey. She says that she’s negotiating. ;-)

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2015 at 18:29

        Tell her thanks bunches. You’d be perfect at the paper.

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 October 6, 2015 at 20:00

        I will! And thank you! I can’t wait to start! :-D

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2015 at 12:01

        It’ll be awesome.

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 October 7, 2015 at 12:37

        Besides there not being coffee, what’s the workplace like?

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2015 at 20:56

        Well, it’s tidy, clean. Carpet was white. But Julia might have changed that.

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 October 8, 2015 at 21:34

        Um. We might have to get carpet cleaners in, then. You should have company wide pranks and Nerf wars, so we can practice our skills as warriors! :-P

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2015 at 13:07

        Nerf wars! Yes!!

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 October 9, 2015 at 13:51

        That would be such fun! We’d probably get sniffed at by Schnod, though. :-P

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke October 11, 2015 at 17:28

        Almost definitely.

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 October 11, 2015 at 17:54

        It would be worth it. ^_^

  2. 14 walt walker July 15, 2015 at 14:47

    Now, I would have thought you were the oldest, PV.J.

    • 15 Professor VJ Duke July 16, 2015 at 13:56

      Oh, well, see…good point. But see…this is the thing: I actually hide my age. That way, I can get more money.

  3. 16 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 10, 2015 at 17:40

    PT News’ first job is to turn on the mobile device switch on this bolg. I cannot see it, Sirs, and Madam. I think you did a fine job interviewing, Duke. However, I am a bit jealous. She will meet Shnoddy!

    • 17 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2015 at 19:16

      She will meet Shnoddy! I think they’ll like each other. But you and Shnod would have more in common since you both write epic poetry. Now…it doesn’t work on a mobile device?

      • 18 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 11, 2015 at 16:35

        Tis important to like those one works with. Now just look at how well you and your team get along. Y’all are forever pumping fists, patting backs, tripping each other down the hall…tis sweet! Me, and Snod? Just Shnod…but you are so very cute for saying so.
        No, you must check a checkmark in the box thingy…

      • 19 Professor VJ Duke July 13, 2015 at 00:07

        Oh, there’s lots of screaming, crying, yelling, and beating…you wouldn’t believe it. It’s like a war zone at PT News. Amazing really. Cute? I’m ugly…like a warthog.

        Where’s that thingy at ?

      • 20 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 13, 2015 at 02:59

        Sounds like a great place to be, actually. I like business to be busy. A worthog! Duke…you are not. How rude.
        Umm, well, maybe under reading…tools…

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2015 at 12:50

        I am! I just don’t have the cool tusks.

        *laughs* You’re laughing me to scorn!

      • 22 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 14, 2015 at 22:57

        Oh, okay. Well, what do you eat, Mr. Warthog?
        *smiles* No, I was trying to help…did you find it? No, you didn’t!

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke July 15, 2015 at 12:53

        Well, I don’t eat grass, that’s for sure. Maybe cakes and skittles?

        Of course I didn’t! Double-dadblameit.

      • 24 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 15, 2015 at 21:47

        I’ll make sure to have plenty here for you. I recently made the most delicious chocolate cake. Called a coke a cola cake. Probably too much chocolate for you, but everyone loved it. I mean everyone. For five days they talked about it. Embarrassing really.
        Okay…try under tools…mobile. I saw it there last night.

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke July 16, 2015 at 14:06

        I would’ve loved that cake! The chocolate thing is just for…show, really. Now you make me want cake. Very badly. Is there any left?

        I shall locketh…

      • 26 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 16, 2015 at 17:21

        None left at all. The cake went so fast I thought Merlin was about… I’ll make you a cake one day. For your 50th birthday.

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2015 at 00:41

        50th b-day? Goodness. I want one now! I’m sure that cake went fast. I bet Oscar had a slice.

      • 28 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 18, 2015 at 16:09

        Yes, why not seems like a nice round number and cause for celebration. You can have one! Gesh. Come over… No, Oscar wasn’t at the river with me. He can’t have chocolate.

      • 29 Professor VJ Duke July 20, 2015 at 13:11

        Chocolate is bad for dogs. I will come…if you invite me!

      • 30 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 20, 2015 at 17:10

        Yes, tis. Oh, you would not.

      • 31 Professor VJ Duke July 21, 2015 at 11:32

        That’s because you wouldn’t invite me!

      • 32 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 21, 2015 at 19:40

        Not true at all!

      • 33 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2015 at 12:37

        Hmm…well. Now…what a wonder.

      • 34 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 22, 2015 at 16:02

        *blinks* You don’t have time for vactions.

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2015 at 19:18

        Really? You’re probably so right.

  4. 36 John W. Howell July 9, 2015 at 00:48

    I think anyone who would not be considered for the bigger papers would be perfect for the PT News

    • 37 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 12:03

      Yes! This is what I was thinking. But why? I can’t quite put it into words myself.

      • 38 John W. Howell July 9, 2015 at 12:29

        Big papers are filled with arrogant people who don’t try to excel. So if one is turned down by arrogant people one may not be arrogant. (or something like that)

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 22:40

        I love this point! Very true. That means Manahanny’s paper is on the decline. He probably doesn’t even know it.

      • 40 John W. Howell July 9, 2015 at 22:45

        Too arrogant

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 22:56

        Yes, exactly! That’s the impression he gives. Now, I wonder…if I warned him, what would he do…?

      • 42 John W. Howell July 10, 2015 at 00:48

        Depends on how you warned him. You : “Hey Manahanny your paper’s gonna die because you’re too arrogant.” Him: “Yeah says you.” Other approach. You: “Hey Manahanny I hear your arrogance is killing the paper.” Him “It is?”

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2015 at 12:59

        The last one is my fav…that gets him thinking. I could see that. I’m wanting to try it, the sudden.

      • 44 John W. Howell July 10, 2015 at 18:18

        Go ahead.

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2015 at 19:18

        Well, you’d have to come along with me.

      • 46 John W. Howell July 10, 2015 at 22:30

        Need to pack

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke July 12, 2015 at 23:54

        Well, just bring a toothbrush.

      • 48 John W. Howell July 13, 2015 at 00:25

        You have electricity everywhere?

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2015 at 12:48

        Mostly. Do you have an electric toothbrush?

      • 50 John W. Howell July 14, 2015 at 21:43

        Yes. I don’t know how to operate the other kind.

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2015 at 21:53

        *laughing* You do make me laugh. And I haven’t forgotten about our story. Would you like me to email you?

      • 52 John W. Howell July 14, 2015 at 21:55

        Sure Johnhowell.wave@gmail.com I am pretty much out of pocket this week though.

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke July 15, 2015 at 12:49

        No problementos. I’ll shoot you an email soon, and we can schedule or start working on something.

  5. 54 Simply Skeptical July 8, 2015 at 23:01

    Laughing hard!!! Now what do you think Salami is going to do to that abrupt hiring of someone else and in his presence to boot? Run and run fast Professor.

    • 55 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 12:03

      I can’t run, though. See, there’s a wall at my back. I might have to throw a trashcan at him, though.

  6. 56 L. Marie July 8, 2015 at 22:16

    Julia Thompson, eh? I hope she’ll make a decent reporter. But I doubt you’ve heard the last of this from Daddy salami. Oh he’ll probably have words.

    • 57 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 12:02

      *laughs* Do you know her? He’ll probably do something devious to try and destroy our company. He’s such a meany.

  7. 58 The Lite Rider July 8, 2015 at 21:31

    Ah, great great choice and in the nick of time. :)

    • 59 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 12:01

      Now, LR! I know you would’ve hired DS, since you have a soft spot for his laugh..

  8. 60 Lady Dunamis July 8, 2015 at 17:19

    I think I would have been more amused if DS wrote Christiana John-Doe. And it seems like ponytail saved your life…I think. But en-tee-way, prepare for battle because DS won’t take such an offense lightly.

    • 61 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2015 at 19:12

      *laughs* Now that would’ve been something! Do you suppose she’s good for the job? I’ll have you handle DS’s anger.

      • 62 Lady Dunamis July 8, 2015 at 23:20

        Only her ponytail will tell……As of DS, I don’t do anger consulting. Leave that to Dr. Phil :-)

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 12:03

        But…I think DS would listen to you more than Dr. Phil. Maybe I should just call Sandra.

      • 64 Lady Dunamis July 9, 2015 at 15:59

        Yes. Call Sandra, besides I don’t think DS could afford me…lol!

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 22:49

        *laughs* Oh okay! If you insist. You’re probably right about DS.

  9. 66 Debbie July 8, 2015 at 17:16

    I for one am glad you hired the girl with the ponytail. She’s young, educated, and conducted herself admirably during the interview (though she probably shouldn’t have admitted she was afraid the bigger papers wouldn’t give her a second glance!)

    As for D.S. well, if you *want* him hanging around, I’m sure you can find an appropriate job for him — why did he choose a woman’s name anyway??

    Poor Nick. Recently hired for an important position and already he’s found a way to make somebody else do his job!!

    • 67 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2015 at 19:11

      Ah, thank you, Debbie! Everyone else seems to think I made a mistake! Dadblameit. She did conduct herself well, and she’s new, which is a good thing. *laughs* Yes, she probably shouldn’t have. She was going a mile a minute there. Goodness.

      I’m not sure! Do you suppose he thought it would help his chances?

      I know. What should be done with him? Slaps on the ears!

      • 68 Debbie July 8, 2015 at 19:40

        NoNoNo, don’t slap poor Nick! He’s “new,” too, right, so he probably just didn’t know he was supposed to do the hiring. Do you think he’d have hired the ponytail girl??

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 11:56

        *laughing* Okay, I won’t! Well…he’d probably have looked at more candidates. Do you suppose I made a mistake? Oh dear… *bangs head on desk*

  10. 70 Susan P July 8, 2015 at 17:12

    I say you handed that job over too quickly. Also, maybe it would be helpful to have a dedicated contraption under the chair where the applicant can be quickly dispatched in the event that things get out of hand. Ah, well. Hindsight is a wonderful thing…

    • 71 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2015 at 19:09

      Now that is a stellar idea! For instance, I could’ve had Salami sit down, and then…BANG!

      Do you suppose she’s the wrong candidate for the job?

      • 72 Susan P July 8, 2015 at 21:28

        I would suggest a trial time before you put her on payroll.

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 12:01

        Now that is rather a good idea. How long should it last, say?

      • 74 Susan P July 9, 2015 at 12:30

        A month at the very least. And you should put her in an open office situation and surround her with the most annoying employees ever.

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 22:41

        Well…who of the office, do you suppose, is the most annoying? *looks at Shnodgrate innocently*

      • 76 Susan P July 10, 2015 at 00:22

        I”ll have to get back with you on that.

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2015 at 12:58

        *nods* Definitely not the professor.

      • 78 Susan P July 10, 2015 at 14:39

        Ah, but the professor is the puppet master.

      • 79 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2015 at 19:05

        Haha! I do like that for some reason, don’t you know.

      • 80 Susan P July 12, 2015 at 13:01

        You should go to Japan for a visit. Japanese puppet masters are the best.

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke July 13, 2015 at 00:09

        Would they try to eat me?

      • 82 Susan P July 13, 2015 at 13:05

        Only if you taste good.

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2015 at 12:53

        I taste…like a warthog, I imagine.

      • 84 Susan P July 14, 2015 at 13:11

        I shall eat eels.

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2015 at 21:38

        But are you sure?

      • 86 Susan P July 15, 2015 at 01:23

        I can only die once. Right? I’ve eaten snails, squid…

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke July 15, 2015 at 12:57

        How are the snails?

      • 88 Susan P July 15, 2015 at 17:47

        Snails are tasty.

      • 89 Professor VJ Duke July 16, 2015 at 13:59

        *gags* They are? They are not!

      • 90 Susan P July 16, 2015 at 17:35

        Prepared properly, they are tasty.

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2015 at 00:43

        Humph…I would be hard to convince!

      • 92 Susan P July 17, 2015 at 01:14

        Well, I was taught that if I was in someone’s home, and they offer something unknown to eat, the polite thing is to eat it because it is probably a special treat in their land.

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2015 at 22:06

        But that’s not what the professor would do…which inspires a story, can you believe.

      • 94 Susan P July 18, 2015 at 00:50

        Really now? I had an idea myself not long ago.

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke July 20, 2015 at 13:00

        And what is it, madam?

      • 96 Susan P July 20, 2015 at 13:39

        I shall elucidate hereafter.

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke July 21, 2015 at 11:24

        Now I’m quite excited.

      • 98 Susan P July 21, 2015 at 13:24

        As soon as I finish my work today I shall send a short email.

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2015 at 12:26

        Very good. I’m excited for it.

      • 100 Susan P July 22, 2015 at 14:18

        Life got into the way. However, it is sent to your email.

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2015 at 19:11

        No problem at all. I shall take a peek at it soon. Many thanks!

      • 102 Susan P July 22, 2015 at 21:02

        It’s fun.

  11. 103 PorterGirl July 8, 2015 at 13:47

    I feel a bit sorry for poor DS here, I think he would make an excellent reporter. He even showed his dastardly underhandedness with his cunning application (great name, by the way.) But we all know you are a sucker for a lady (especially with a ponytail) so I suppose I shouldn’t be so surprised at the appointment.

    • 104 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2015 at 19:08

      Don’t you think, though, that there was something wrong with his name? It sorta didn’t work. In a roundabout way. I think it was the last name coupled withe the first. That’s where the problem lies.

      *laughs* Hey! It wasn’t my fault she was the only chap to come along. I mean…would you really have hired DS over her?!

      • 105 PorterGirl July 8, 2015 at 19:24

        It is a bit of a mish-mash, admittedly, although rather imaginative! Quite good for a reporter. But I suppose you are right – the right woman got the job. I don’t think DS will be pleased, though!

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 11:55

        I suppose DS did win in the creative category, for sure, the bugger! DS will also probably throw a rampage or something mean like that. I’ll just have to take him to breakfast. That fetches him, you know.

      • 107 PorterGirl July 9, 2015 at 12:10

        I shall start rampaging if it means I get taken for breakfast! Breakfast is one of my favourite things. DS is such a complex chap, you know. Hopefully he will adopt me eventually *laughs*

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 22:38

        I think he might definitely adopt you–especially if you ask. You should, you know. Now, breakfast is awesome! I’m hungry. I should have dinner.

      • 109 PorterGirl July 10, 2015 at 04:59

        I shall put it to him. You are always hungry – a fabulous trait in a chap, I think.

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2015 at 13:05

        Yes…it’s the beasty-ness, don’t you know. I’m not hungry now, though.

      • 111 PorterGirl July 10, 2015 at 13:09

        That’s good to know. I am. I have some pastrami, might as well eat that.

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2015 at 18:53

        Well, Pastrami is good!

        I love it! Especially with the cheese that has holes in.

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke July 13, 2015 at 00:09

        Yes, the holed cheese is most excellent.

      • 115 PorterGirl July 13, 2015 at 06:22

        I wonder if the holes cost extra? Hmm!

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2015 at 12:51

        *laughing* They better not, I tell you! Imagine that!

  12. 117 FictionFan July 8, 2015 at 13:44

    Why doesn’t it surprise me that you chose the girl, huh? I suppose it was the ponytail bobbing that was the deciding factor. *shakes head despairingly* I don’t think Mr Salami will take this lying down… *waits happily for the sausagy revenge to begin*

    • 118 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2015 at 19:07

      Oh, he’ll probably throw some sort of tantrum and bawl his eyes out. Or he even might get violent! In which case, I’ll send him to Manahanny. Well…I fear she was the only reliable candidate. You would have done the same thing, see.

      • 119 FictionFan July 8, 2015 at 20:35

        Would not!! Who wants somebody sensible and qualified around the workplace? DS would make a great reporter what with all his experience of being Olmes and all! But no doubt you thought Ms Julia was prettier… *narrows eyes*

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 11:59

        Well, now that you mention it, she was cute. But that’s not why I hired her, of course. I’m heartless. Heartless professors don’t think of that sort of thing.

      • 121 FictionFan July 9, 2015 at 16:40

        Cute?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I warn you, if you call her adorable too, I shall not be answerable for the consequences, sir!! Huh! Seems to me heartless Professors think of little else!! * tries to remember how to flounce*

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 22:53

        You asked! So I had to look at her picture again to make sure. Adorable? No, don’t worry, girls aren’t ever adorable. Promise. I’m so heartless, I wouldn’t even care about a clam.

      • 123 FictionFan July 10, 2015 at 02:54

        You have her picture?!?!!!!!!! She’s a flirt! You’re a flirt!! Outrageous!! *outraged face*

        What? No girls are adorable? Not even one…? *sad little tear-streaked face*

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2015 at 13:04

        *laughing* Well, isn’t it normal for a person to send in their picture with their resume? We even got a fake one from DS.

        You told me that yourself, you know.

      • 125 FictionFan July 10, 2015 at 16:48

        Huh! Good excuse! You should get the Something Chief to file it away – in the fire!

        You’re so heartless… *sobs pathetically and hiccups*

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke July 10, 2015 at 19:13

        Well, it’s not like I hang it up and look at it! She’ll be a good worker, and that’s all, madam!

        Yes, I lost my heart on the beaches of Troy. Okay, I might make one stipulation.

      • 127 FictionFan July 10, 2015 at 23:50

        Huh! She’s probably one of these gold-diggers who just wants to marry the boss!

        *nods sadly* Yes. Ms Julia. I know. *stumbles off dejectedly*

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke July 13, 2015 at 00:02

        A gold-digger? If she digs for gold, I’ll keep her around forever, probably. As long as she leads me to the mines and splits the proceeds 50/50.

        It’s Miss Julia, actually.

      • 129 FictionFan July 13, 2015 at 14:42

        Ms, actually. Don’t you read your own stories?

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2015 at 12:59

        *laughing and bangs head* Is that what I said? I can’t ever keep the differences straight, I fear.

  13. 131 Heartafire July 8, 2015 at 13:42

    Excellent choice, a pony-tail is the mark of street smarts and curiosity…and perhaps a little desperation.

    • 132 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2015 at 19:06

      *laughs* Is it? I never thought a pony-tail meant so much. An interest! Does it mean she’s dependable?

      • 133 Heartafire July 8, 2015 at 20:37

        to a fault…nauseatingly (is that a word) so.

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 12:00

        If it isn’t a word, we should make it one! Great, then. I feel spicy, don’t you know.

      • 135 Heartafire July 9, 2015 at 12:15

        That’s the spirit!

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2015 at 22:39

        *bows* Well, now, everything is tops.
