One man’s mistake is another man’s life lesson. A little anecdote that turned up on Mashable this week is a great teaching moment for anyone who is looking for a job.

While traveling in the London Underground on his way to a job interview, a man was blocked by a fellow passenger. Instead of saying “excuse me”, he pushed the other passenger and told him to go f*ck himself. Now we have all been stressed the day of an interview, but obviously this is not the way to handle a situation.

Why was this such a big deal? Oh, perhaps because when the man showed up for his job interview and met with the Head of Talent and Recruiting, it turned out to be the passenger from the incident.

It just cannot get any worse than that.

According to Mashable, even though the two men sort of laughed about the exchange, the position is still available.

The moral of this story is that while you are in search of a job – and especially when you’re on your way to an interview – it’s best to conduct yourself as if everyone you come into contact with can help or hurt your chances at a job. Because you just never know…

While this little tale won’t exactly help you find work, we wanted to share. Plus it’s a pretty funny. Want more funny, job related stories? Or just help finding your next job? Contact our staffing specialists at Maxsys Solutions.
