micheltombroff I went to Paris for my first interview (that was 1989) for a job of Unix kernel developer. All dressed up. I step out of the elevator and see a young punk with scruffy hair and different colour shoes. I reckon he must be the pizza delivery guy. I ask him “dude, can you please point me to the CEO’s office for interview”. He said “sure, follow me man, I’ll show you”. We arrive at a desk, he sat down in the big chair and looks at me with a big smile and says “Ok dude, here we are. I am the CEO. Now let’s see how good you are!”
I got the job. And 26 years latet, last week, amazing coincidence: I met him again at a trade show in Paris … with the same coloured shoes. How cool is that!!!
