@Milla: Maybe she wanted to make sure you were clean...you know, not doing drugs or something like that. :)

Or maybe she's just paranoid! :devious:

@Asheera: LOL!!

@Elvin: Ah...I had forgotten about that...those are some funny articles! :D

Got up at 07:00 this morning, to take my car to the garage and have the fuel tank and filler pipe replaced. I bought the parts myself, having been given assurances that they would fit the car. Then I got to the garage a few weeks ago, and they said they'd have to reschedule the appointment because the tank was full of petrol. This time I was confident the thing would be fixed, but... no. I got in, the started working on it, and I had a nap on their couch. Then they woke me up and said that althought the tank fit, the filler pipe did not. I got on the phone to the parts dealer, who didn't understand it, since his catalogues said the part would fit. Having already saved money on buying the tank from him, however, I told the garage to get hold of an original pipe from Belgium. The downside: it takes 3 days to get here. So now I'm without a car until some time next week. Just what I needed in an otherwise packed month. :sad:

Oh, that sucks. Looking for the bright side, I'm without car for... for... well, since birth! *thumbs up* :D ... Ah, all right, no bright side for sure. :ashamed:

Huh ? Do they have better filler pipes in Belgium than in Denmark ? 8|
I never realised...

It sucks though, without a car for a week, if you need it. :disagree::S:tsdown:
Do you need your car for your job ?
You can carpoole.

What sort of job was it? Sounds like she wanted to make sure you were pretty/classy/whatever enough to represent her business.

Chances are you are too good for her ;)

A few months ago, there was a lot of commotion in Belgium; One specific firm (I forgot it's name) asked quite indescrete questions about the sollicitant's sexlife, underwear choic and interest in BDSM. This is a bit worse than what you wrote, but it's basically the same. I hope that job is worth it. :)

Well I looked, the quiz game, #5 hasn't had a post since 2006!

But that wasn't why the other game was locked was it?

About job interviews, I heard it's a trend now to ask strange questions and behave strangely, to see how you handle it.

It was in a very fancy jewelry store. If I get it I'm gonna turn it down. I've decided it's not for me ;)

@Elvin: Darn...forgot about you. :tongue:

And I was so close to a "no-groan" as well, because Omega isn't here either. :)
