Conversation started as…
Interviewer: You feel exhausted after so much waiting, have some water. (Pointing towards the bottle kept in front)
Candidate: (Extends his hand towards the water bottle)
Here’s the suspense…
Interviewer: Wait! That cap is mine, you can’t touch that.
Candidate: ?? (Blank face)
Interviewer: Yes, you have to drink it without touching the cap of the bottle.
Candidate: (Holds the bottle in his hand, and after looking for a while, puts it back on the table) There is no water in the bottle, Sir!
Interviewer: What are you saying? Can’t you see, it is full to the brim.
Candidate: (Calmly) No sir. I have checked and I can’t find any water.
And it goes on like this…
Interviewer keeps on saying that there is water while showing him bottle repeatedly, but candidate was not ready to accept as one can’t wake up a man pretending to sleep.
Finally after few minutes of discussion it get restricted to ‘water is’, ‘no water’….’water is’, ‘no water’.
End of conversation
Interviewer: (completely frustrated, opens the bottle and starts pouring it in front of candidate) What is this then?
