I used to work in a big box retail store. One day the owners decided that the building's roof needed to be refinished. They proceeded to hire the biggest group of idiot roofers I've ever seen. The guys even managed to light the roof on fire at one point when they left their equipment for keeping the tar hot turned on. Anyway, we were working inside and whatever they were doing up there suddenly started to produce loud, hard banging. It was shaking the building and deafening to us inside. And that's when it started: the fluorescent lights started to fall out of their fixtures and shatter like bombs on the floor. Ever seen one of those explode? It sucks. Now, suddenly, we found ourselves in a minefield. Someone had to get outside to tell these guys to quit, all the while little pockets of violently exploding glass were going off at random points all around us. As lame as it sounds, particularly given the situations I've put myself in during my life, when people ask me when I was the most terrified that is what comes to mind. As in, adrenaline-pumping, mouth-dry, might-freeze-up terror. Focus: Tell a story about when you were the most terrified. Alt. Focus: What thought or idea or story scares the shit out of you? Mine involves driving down the road and having someone, who unbeknownst to me had broken into my car, sit up behind me in the back seat. I don't even like it when it happens in a movie.
