Over the holiday break, my family watched Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day starring the hilarious Steve Carell and Jennifer Gardner. Alexander's father played by Carell is job searching, stay-at-home-dad. He scores an exciting interview but can't find a sitter so takes the baby along. The scene was excruciating to watch. As Steve struggles to force-feed the interviewers his catchy ideas for the job, his baby eats an entire permanent marker. The interviewers spend the scene gawking at the baby, immersed in the ultimate interview distraction.
I spent the rest of the movie wondering:
“How are interviewers distracted in virtual interviews?”
