Standing whilst naked and imagining them naked also works.

Unless it's a video call.

I didn't realise my webcam was on for my first interview and the guy said: "I'm sorry we can't hire you, I can see your nuts".

I thought he meant crazy ...

Well done on getting your job, we haven't been o forum for a while so catching up.

So you got the job completely being interviewed by phone? My hubby was under the impression that he couldn't even think of applying for jobs until we were over. He is in accounting btw so it may not be the same for his job type??

Congrats again

This. The basic rule is in Oz is: 'The caller pays what they expect to pay'. In other words if I have an Oz registered mobile and I call another Oz registered mobile I have no way of knowing that the person on the other end is overseas, so the person receiving the call pays from the outbound Int DSL (the point at which the call leaves the country), the person making the call pays whatever they would have paid if the person had been in the country.

So if the company makes a call to an overseas registered mobile, the person receiving the call pays nothing as the originator of the call had prior knowledge as to where the phone was registered and pays everything..

Yes, I work in telco, no I can't help you with your bill and I don't have a clue about iPhones or plans so don't PM me.

Forgot to say congrats on the job.
