Bonehead Move du Jour

When you have a job candidate on campus...

...and when you are talking to another colleague who asks you what you've thought of the candidate so far, and you're about to start saying things (albeit nice things) about not only that candidate, but the previous ones...

...and even when you've already looked down the hallway both ways to make sure that said candidate isn't hanging about where s/he could hear you...

...make damn sure as well that the closed door that you're standing outside of isn't also the door to the chair's office. You know, the one with the vent in the bottom half of the door? Where the candidate is currently having part of his/her interview?

Gah! Gah! No!

At least you weren't saying assholish things about the candidates.

Crikey! Well, these things happen...hey, at least you were interested enough in the candidate to have an opinion. That's kinda nice!

If they get the job, you can always call this their official hazing. At least then they'll see that you have a sense of humor and will know you'll respond well to having your office rearranged while you're away.

Oops. At least you weren't badmouthing them.
