The Flying Shoe Interview

I had a brilliant interview for a job with the City of New Haven's Livable City Initiative. My interviewers were very enthusiastic about my resume and asked about my interest in other open positions because they liked my background in transportation and economic development.

At the end of the interview, I uncrossed my legs to stand and my left shoe flew 2 feet across the floor, in the direction of one of my interviewers! I probably would have been mortified if it hadn't been so absolutely hilarious.

What did I say after I re-shod my left foot? I said "Great... now I'll forever be known as the candidate that couldn't keep her shoes on."
