2. I never would have done this

But back then I was big and intimidating enough that the guy didn't want to chance my following through on it.

When I was laid off from a programming job in the mid-noughts, I was having trouble finding another one, but I got a call from a guy who saw my resume online and wanted to interview me for a programming job so I went in for an interview, and we went into a meeting room with a large table we sat down at, and he started talking about another job (financial counselor). I stopped him, saying I think there might be a mistake as I was there for a programming job. He said no, that it was for financial counseling. I asked why he lured me in on false pretenses. He didn't have an answer for that so I stood up and said, "I think we're done here." He replied in a very snotty voice, "Well, thanks for wasting my time." I rounded the table, spun him around in his chair and put my hands on the armrests so he couldn't get out and said, "If the next words out of your mouth are not, 'I'm sorry for wasting your time by being a piece of shit and lying to you,' I'm throwing you into the wall behind me. Then I'm picking you up and throwing you against another wall, and we're just going to go around the room like that until you do apologize."

He apologized.
