Default Was your interviewer a TBHP Mate?

I felt this is one hell of a interesting situation that you happen to be in an interview and the interviewer is TBHP mate. You know he is part of TBHP and an active member. Building the scene further, he does not show any sign of recognizing you.

What would you have done in this scene?
Has this ever happened to anyone of you?

Considering both of you identify you are TBHPians, what do you do?

Discuss cars or that one sweet moment you had on the meet or one thread that captured everyone's attention

Isn't this interesting.

@MODS, request you to please move this to its destination thread if this is not the one.

Well it happened after the interview actually. I came to know my previous manager who interviewed me last, browses through the community and was talking about 2 people drive all the way to Delhi in a Nano. I broke the news that I am a member of T-Bhp.
He enjoys driving and has a 2.6 CRDe to his mercy.

This usually never happens. when the candidate is desperate to have a job he will never think of any forum. Ok during the interview stages if he ask anything related to it then we can spill out or else I doubt the candidate telling that he is a TBHP member during the interview. This might happen only in films. But you never know what is in the corner.

Most of all if someone mentions that I am an automobile enthu and an active member on T-Bhp, the interviewer will think of productivity first. Rest later.
My Manager says "there should be another activity defined in the system" called "Time spent on T-Bhp'

I dont think any one will tell the interviewer that he/she is a memeber of tbhp unless tbhp is like World Wildlife Fund for cars, The ideal situation is 1. Both have met on a meet before
2. Have seen the stickers on each others cars before the interview.
3.Team BHP introduces some merchendise like a watch or a keychain which both have.

Very rare scenario: talking of interests, our interviewee mentions a lot about cars and tbhp(very good foot in mouth scenario).

this would be quite a scene when one realised the person on the other side of the table is a tbhpian too. For a moment there would the eyebrow raise effect, a little smile and u never know he must just ask u to show your car and if you DO NOT have the sticker on it, you might not get the job

@pramod: why did u change ur DP, i miss the joker :-(

If i tell you something you will not belive, the jocker seriously got me. I Started getting weirder, and started doing thins his way, one day i even tried creating a collage the way he did.

Just kidding wife made me change it, she was like who the hell is that i have not met any of your relative who looks like that guy, I let her take all such small decissions, because i always get to take big decssions like who will be the next american president, should india start a dialouge with pakistan, should petrol price be hiked etc. I hope you got the message
