Check this out. It's a poli sci prof's list of really stupid things she's seen actual candidates do. Most of it's predictable dumb-assery, like lying on your CV and telling the department you're not really interested in them. But it gets worse. Look at number five on the list:
5. Wear sweatpants. Give your [job] talk while sitting on a table swinging your legs.
Holy fuck. To repeat: someone actually did this. Down thread, we discover the pants were navy and black.
I really hate sweat pants. I mean, I really hate them. I don't even own a pair, let alone ever wear them out of the house. They disgust me. So I'm not really sure I can fully wrap my head around the idea that some imbecile wore a pair of sweatpants for their job talk. I'd ask how a person that stupid could even dress themselves in the morning, but I guess the real point is, they can't.
