Anyone need a car guard?

Last month, I was called for an interview with a security company that needed a bodyguard. I like to think of myself as a bull, not easily floored. During my school days in the township, I used to floor my opponents as they came. I was armed with this biographical reference in my curriculum vitae. Such confidence can be shattered the moment you get past the first minute of a job interview. It’s like realising you’re on a sinking ship and bailing water for dear life.

“Good,” the interviewer said. “What do those words mean to you?” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy. Should you wish to report a comment for editorial review, please do so by clicking the 'Report Comment' button to the right of each comment.
