BrickUnderground recently asked me to list how to answer tricky questions during a co-op board interview. Examples:
The board asks you to describe the dog you adopted from a shelter years ago, a snappish Chow mix who doesn’t like to be touched by strangers and especially not by children
Describe him, truthfully, as a lazy old thing that loves dozing in your lap.
They mention that this is a “family” building.
If you have kids, it is still not okay to mention their hallway soccer league. And if you’re gay, this might not be the time to explore the board’s definition of “family.”
If you’d like to see more “helpful” hints, visit the BrickUnderground site–if you dare.
