ITHACA-Senior Eric Scaley found himself in hot water this morning after accidentally referring to his interviewer as ‘Mom’ during an interview for a prestigious position at Deloitte. The interview was going smoothly until recruiter Jen Ellison remarked that she was impressed by Scaley’s resume. Scaley eagerly replied “Thanks, Mom!” Reportedly, this was followed by 15 seconds of deafeningly awkward silence. Scaley attempted to recover by discussing his extracurricular activities and previous internships, but the damage had already been done.
Having once referred to his Stats professor as “Dad,” and telling Rebecca Olivers ‘14 “I love you” after hooking up once at a party, Scaley is notorious for such mis-steps. As of press time, Scaley has not received a job offer.
