“My Big Mouth”
I have been struggling to find a job for the past while. I finally found an opening as a manager at a fancy restaurant. It was one of the most known restaurants in my city and was so pumped for the interview. I knew that this was my chance at scoring a great job. During the interview with the owner she asked the classic question, “Why do you want to work here?” The first thing that came to my mind was “Well, I think the competitor restaurant down the street has awful service and sub par food. I would like to work here because I would be proud to say that I work here.” She she immediately went silent, then said, “I also own that restaurant.” I didn’t wait for a call back to know that I didn’t get the job.
