How Not To Handle Job Interviews

A person applies for a job as a network engineer. As part of the hiring process he is given a technical questionnaire to fill in at home. He is expected to know the answers (most questions are quite easy), or to use Google or similar resources to find out for himself. Instead of doing so, though, the applicant posts the entire questionnaire on a technical online forum and asks its participants to please fill it in for him.

Hilarity ensues when it turns out the interviewer finds the forum post and tells the applicant not to bother turning in the form any more.
