Tough Interview Questions

Job review company Glassdoor have compiled a list of the toughest interview questions by country. Here are the toughest from the UK for 20...

You know you're suffering from technological overload when...

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that you don't have their e-mail address.

6. You pull up outside the house and use your mobile phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the shopping.

7. Every ad on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

8. Leaving the house without your mobile phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile.

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to mail this link to.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list


  1. This is a really good post! Especially number 9! I love it. English is such a good language for puns and idioms.

  2. It is, but I think this one would work in any language. :)

  3. I love the one about calling the house to get help with the groceries. I do that one all the time.

    I noticed there was no #9, probably because I had my coffee before I sat down here!

  4. Well done you! I knew coffee was good for me!
