First kidney stones, now this? I gotta say, whoever comes up with these graphics deserves a medal.

Today's wisdom: See how else not to screw up your interview."

Other helpful tips:

  • don't fart
  • refrain from whipping out your junk
  • don't talk about your cat
  • wear pants

Make sure it’s pressed, too, and that your shoes aren’t scuffed/pantyhose aren’t rife with runs. People notice the little things.

Oh This Way to CPA, you're so funny.
