They are all excellent approaches, but my hands-down favorite is
4. Gaslight your interviewer.
“Don’t you remember? You hired me already.”

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever been asked?
One thought on “You’ve Got Questions? I’ve Got Answers!”
The strangest question I was ever asked, during a job interview anyway, was “how do I use an elevator?”
Being a techie, I started talking about buttons, doors, etc..
What the interviewer wanted me to do was ask her something like “what do you want to do with the elevator?”
Took me some time before this came to mean something to me: I should try to avoid the impulse to “give the information as quickly and accurately as possible”, and learn to enjoy the dialogue, which is inevitably where both people want to go anyway … in many situations both inside and outside of work.
