Re: Cringeworthy things you said in an interview

Oh no Lingua_Franca! That's definitely something I would do though - I walked into a child planning meeting the other day and balked at the number of people in the room, then turned to my client who had started to cry, gave her a tissue and said "well, they look bloody scary but probably half of the...
