This is a question Not Getting the Job

Muns asks - Did you blag your way through a job interview, only to be caught out? Is your photography portfolio full of other peoples work? Did your potential employers google your name, before offering you a lucrative contract and discover something from your past you would rather forget? How did you fail to get the job?

Just out of college
And on the dole. For some reason they got me a job interview at the Foreign and Commonwealth office in London.
They paid my train fare and it was strongly hinted if I didn't go my dole would be stopped.
Had barely gone far from the little yorkshire coastal village I lived then in so it was quite an adventure.
i had absolutely no experience for the job and was was rather overwhelmed by the three men in formal suits behind a huge desk in a huge formal stuffy wood panelled room.
All went averagely ok until they asked me if something I couldn't answer and completely out of the blue I burst into tears.
And that was it, I couldn't stop and sobbed my way awkwardly through the remainder of the interview.
Didn't get the job of course which I was glad about,
But I did have a great day in London and I stole some toilet paper from them because it has 'property of foreign and commonwealth office' stamped on every sheet

Sounds like a spy job.

I'd have made a terrible spy based on that interview, first interrogation and I'd have been all abloo bloo bloo

That's some classy toilet paper
Imagine working in the sewers and finding a turd wrapped in bog roll with "property of foreign and commonwealth office" written on it?

I'd feel compelled to send it back in a jiffy bag.
