"My interviewer was odd.He interrupted me every time I tried to answer of his questions. He told me my opinions were wrong and gave me lectures. He yelled at me for twiddling my thumbs. He liked to make large sweeping generalization like "mexicans don't have any religion" and "Christians, Catholics ... they're all the same".
