I probably can't get across how truly awkward my event was via story but I'll try.
Immediately before an interview I saw a fellow student enter but never leave his interview. So when it came my time, I looked in the window a bit puzzled over where he could have gone (he was already gone). I noticed there was a door in the back of the roughly 6 ft. by 6 ft. room so I figured that's where he had exited.
So fast forward 10-15 minutes or so and, after what I thought was a great interview session, I get up, stroll right past the two interviewers and try to go out the back door -- which was probably the janitor's closet, which was, of course, locked. So I turn around and say "ummm, it's locked" to which they reply simply with completely confused looks. I try again, still locked.
Then one of them just says, rather plainly, "umm, the door is over there" (the door I had come in through). I just laughed and left, figuring my story wouldn't make any sense anyway. I don't think I'll ever get over the true bewilderment on the face of one of the interviewers.
I still have no idea how the previous interviewee got out of there without me noticing.
Same interview: one of them asked about a hobby of mine listed on my resume, which involves multiple gyms. She asked: "So you do ____ 7 days a week?" To which I reply, "Well I train 5 days a week at that and 4 days a week at ____. The look on her face pretty much solidified my belief that she thought I thought there were 9 days in a week, when what I meant is sometimes I do two-a-days.
