Some people really can see into the future, it seems. I kicked off yesterday with an interview in town. I had just written down the names of the people there and put in the date when one of the people I was about to interview piped up: "I've never met anyone who could do shorthand before."
I looked at my notebook. All the writing there so far was in glorious untidy longhand: it's how I record names as shorthand is not a good way of recording accurate spelling. And then I looked back up at him, replying: "Er, I haven't started yet."
Of course, it could just have been down to the "briefing notes" on me prepared by the PR company ahead of the interview.
