I was about to get out of college when I got a interview where I had very little time to prepare for it. The only dress shirt I had was one I "borrowed" from my dad's closet. I put it on with my suit and pushed the excess to the back where my jacket would cover it. That worked but the sleeves were too long. I used rubber bands to hold them up. Again, my jacket would cover them.
As I walked into the interview, one of the rubber bands popped so that one cuff fell down over my hand. I pushed it up but that did no good. It kept slipping down over my hand.
When the interviewer came to get me, I felt the other rubber band pop and this time it tagged me pretty good. I covered the pain up pretty good but now both cuffs wanted to slip down over my hands.
Throughout the interview, I kept pushing the cuffs back up only to have them come right back down. Since I'm a graphic designer and have to show a portfolio, this problem was very obvious. Finally, I reached inside my jacket, grabbed the sleeve, and pulled it up.
On the way out, I knew there was no way I was getting the job but tried to turn it into a positive. That evening I went to the mall, was measured for the right size, and bought a couple of shirts.
