America's Funniest Job Interviews

[music|Elvis Costello--When I Was Cruel]

So I'm being interviewed for a receptionist position at a synagogue temple office, and the topic of the very nature of the place came up in the conversation.

I was trying to come up with an interesting sounding list of issues one might encounter in such a place. The end of which sounded something like "...personal stuff, faith, the" And inside my head I hear this Chandler Bing kind of voice, saying, "The spirit WORLD? What the heck is THAT? You sound like you're applying for a job with JOHN EDWARD!"

If the guy heard my clunker, he didn't bat an eye. Actually, the interview went quite well, I got very good vibes from it. But I wonder if he turned to the other guy after I left and had a giggle over my faux pas. I have to go work on my follow-up letter now, I need to think of an un-heavy-handed way of working the word "spiritual"into it so I sound like I know what I'm talking about.
