This is a question Job Interview Disasters

The boss showed me the shop floor, complete with loose floor tiles, out-of-date equipment and prospective colleagues eyeing me like a raw steak. "Christ, what a craphole", I said. I think that's the moment I blew it. Tell us how you didn't get the job.

Suggested by Field Marshall Dozington-Smythe (Ret.)

I'm from Somerset
and my accent was so broad that even people in Somerset mocked me for it.

I had an interview for a software development job. In Derby.

One of their questions was, "would you mind if people took the piss out of how you talk?"

Despite saying I wouldn't mind (being used to it and all)
I didn't get that job.

I got a different one in Nottingham. Halfway through the first-day tour, I realised for the first time that I actually say, "oo-ar" where most people would say, "right, yep, got it". I was saying it quite a lot.

Bloody hell you have got it bad.
I used to have quite a broad accent, but had it kicked out of me by poshos.
