Depends on Your Definition of "Exciting"

I've been interviewed for a lot of jobs over the years, and while, well, distinctive, I'd hardly call this guy's technique productive:

A man who tried to conduct a job interview naked has been sentenced to three years probation and placed on the sex offenders' register.

Glasgow Sheriff Court was told that Saeed Akbar, a manager at an interpreting and translation company, "had wanted a bit of excitement".

Sheriff Brian Lockhart described the behaviour as "wholly unacceptable".

He heard that Akbar, 35, left the interview room and came back in naked clutching a clipboard.

When the job candidate refused to strip as well, he put his clothes on and attempted to continue the interview as normal, the court was told.

I'd normally chalk this one up to someone wobbling off their meds, but the rest of the article makes him seem otherwise quite sane. Perhaps drugs were involved?

eMail this entry!

Says in the article that he thought the interviewee was interested in him, which is what caused his behavior. I'd say drugs, a damn inflated ego, or some really, really big lapses in judgement...
