Anyone who has been on a job interview knows that certain questions will almost definitely be asked. Some can be challenging like "What are your weaknesses?" or "How do you handle stressful situations?" while others can be a little bit easier, like "Why do you want this job?" and "Tell me about yourself." Well somehow, one job applicant bombed so badly on one of those softball questions that the hiring manager actually called the police on them.
The interviewer explained what happened on Reddit, writing, "I asked an applicant what kind of hobbies he took part in and he told me he collected random things that 'pretty' women threw away." The hiring manager then stated, "When the interview was over, I called the police and gave his resume to them."
Others wrote in with their horror stories too. One person replied, "She listed all of her ex-boyfriends who currently worked there and said she couldn't wait to see the look on their faces when she showed up to work. This was in the first three minutes of the interview so I wasn't even close to offering the job yet. I cut the interview right there and sent her on her way."
Another chimed in, "This one guy was interviewing for a kids job at a school and then casually slips in the conversation how ungrateful children are then tried rubbing it in that they would not be able to withstand PRISON LIKE HE DID."
One more added, "I once received a resume that was just a list of around 20 places someone had worked with the reason they had been fired next to each one."
