CONGRATS! This is a good example of how we psych ourselves out and over-think things, skewing them out of proportion. I'm really happy for you!

C'mon, cut the OP some slack. I don't believe s/he was kissing ass. S/he wanted to make a good impression at the in-person interview, for their dream job. Besides, if anyone conciously (sp) "kisses ass", they are "playing the game", which is to be the winner, the one chosen for the position. Once you get in, you can become your real self again.

I am very happy for you. Here's hoping the job is everything you want it to be!

BTW, that "kiss ass" poster is a d*** a**. You're working and they probably aren't! LOL.

Showing interest is NOT kissing a.
