    With the rather glaring exception that most every boss is clueless on how to give a proper interview question. I wouldn’t have answered you either – you didn’t say why that would help you decide whether this would have any bearing on the job they would do day to day or not. (“What’s your favorite color?” “Tell me why you like driving instead of walking…” ) Try not to do that next time and realize that people are nervous, scared, and intimidated by an interview. Perhaps just *level* with the person and tell them what the job requires – then listen to them as they explain how they do or don’t fit. You’ll get a better group of folks working for you.
