I once had an interview at a company that was located two hours away from my home. The company told me that I was suppose to fill out and bring a provided form to the interview. In those days I was a procrastinator, so I chose to wait until the morning of the interview to print out the form. As you would expect, my printer chose not to work that day. I ended up driving the two hours to the business and asking the interviewer if she could provide me the form. I filled it out on the spot.
Needless to say, I never heard back from the company. I've since learned to always be proactive and plan ahead!
