I go to visit this recruiter yesterday. Its pretty common that they just want a face to face meeting before they market you, so its a prettty casual meeting.
I am waiting in the lobby, at 12:30pm. No one is in the waiting room, and no one saw me come in. I can here the woman I am supposed to meet talking in her office just down the hall. I am supposed to meet her at 12:30. I look at my watch. It's 12:35.
I call her from my cell phone. I hear her phone ring. Some one else answers the phone.
"Can I help you?"
"May I speak to XXXXXXX?"
I hear the man walk in to her office. I hear her say "Shit, I'm running late. Just tell him I already left the office"
The man comes back on. "I'm sorry, but she just left for the day. Would you like her voice mail?"
I say in a voice loud enough so they can here me without the phone, with just the edge of a growl in my voice. "I'm in the your office now. I can hear you." I manage to restrain myself from adding, "dude, you are like, soooooo, busted."
After the meeting, I laughed all the way back to my office.
