FAST ON HER FEET
Iana Dealey was job hunting at an old house renovated for commercial use (idealmarketingandpr.com). Waiting for people to come into the conference room, she stepped on a heat vent, one of those old-style wrought-iron grates, she says. The grate latched onto her heel like a barracuda and wouldnt let her pull it out. The heat from the vent was so bad that she started sweating.
I wasnt able to free my foot, she explains. As each person filed into the room for the interview, I stood to shake hands and slipped my foot out of my shoe under the table so no one could see. I sat down and completed the interview, hoping they would leave the room and I could show myself out without them ever knowing I was stuck in this three-pound grate.
