Dear Experts, I had an interview yesterday. The first person I met with was great. We really hit it off, laughing and had the same views on everything.

At one point she said, "Wow, sounds like you were having a good time in there. You both were laughing so hard the whole office heard you." Did I do something wrong? I really want this job. The company is great and I think I could do great things for them, but I'm afraid the manager who I'd be reporting to has a problem with me. What can I do to fix this?
