Planes, trains, and automobiles
Got this from my cubemate; Mama's Boy
I had a candidate who lives in Virginia who was set up for an interview in Pennsylvania. When it was time to fly out for the interview the weather was not cooperating. He flew from Virginia to North Carolina, but his connecting flight from North Carolina to Pennsylvania was cancelled. He decided to take a taxi to the nearest train station. From there he jumped on a train and traveled through the night to Pennsylvania. When he arrived in Pennsylvania he rented a car and drove to where the interview was taking place. He stated that he would have done anything to make the interview, because he was really looking forward to working on that program. Long story short he made the interview on time after taking every form of transportation possible. I extended the offer to him and 4 days later he DECLINED it.
