"I yelled at my interviewer as if I was his crazy ex"

10 September 2015, 07:58UGC - Readers response

Has this ever happened to you? When there is a person or family member that you haven’t seen in a few years, then one day you spot them and greet them, but wait… they DON'T have a clue who you are. 

This happened to me one day as I was introduced to my interviewers for a job.

As I was greeting them, I got so excited to see my cousin Yabani, who was one of the interviewers.

I said, “Hi Yabani, how are you?” His reply, “Hello, please take a seat.” 

The moment I heard him speak my heart sank, my face flushed and I was deeply embarrassed. It turned out that this dude was NOT my cousin Yabani! 

It was such a close resemblance to my cousin that I could swear this was his double. I apologised profusely and explained the reason for the misunderstanding.

At least everyone in the room had a nice little chuckle for the 'Yabani' mishap. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful in getting the job. - Chidamara

I am extremely punctual, but on this day I battled to find parking and I was already 10 minutes late. Totally flustered & out of breath, I charged in and said, "Hi Habib, my name is Debbie."

Meanwhile, my name is Habib and the interviewer's name was Debbie.

I think she thought I was absolutely crazy and I unfortunately didn't get the job. - Habib

It started off as a bad hair day, but I had to look my best, because I was on my way to a very important interview. 

The morning traffic was hectic as usual when this idiot in his fancy 4X4 cuts in front of my not-so fancy-but-dependable little car without even using his indicator. 

I changed lanes to be abreast with him, rolled down my window and started yelling like a crazy ex-girlfriend. The moron actually shook his head at me as if to say, "Now, now, behave yourself!"
I made it in good time for the interview, so I had a few moments to calm down and pull myself together. 

I was called into the boardroom for the interview and when I walked in, the first person my eyes focused on was Mr 4X4!

Needless to say, I didn't get the job. And I can just imagine what Mr 4X4 told his colleagues after I left the boardroom. - Uyai
