This made me laugh so hard:

Have you ever tried to fake your way through a job for which you were ill-qualified?
I did once. There was this military airplane refurbishment outfit that paid pretty well by the standards of the area I was living in at the time. The job specifically said not to apply if you were afraid of heights.
Well, like a dummy, I applied anyway, even though I can’t even stand next to a window on the second floor without getting nauseated and dizzy. I passed all the tests, filled out all the paperwork, aced my interview.
Then they took us on a tour of the facility. There was a C-130 transport plane parked near one of the hangers with a movable stairway next to it leading up to the wing. The man who was conducting the tour made us go up the stairway in pairs and walk on the wing, from the fuselage to the tip and back to the stairs.
Somehow I managed to do it, even though I wanted to run away screaming. I probably had the same look on my face as that dog in the sheep mosh pit!
Anyhoo, tell us your “fake it til you make it” story — or discuss whatever: open thread!
