Probably not a good idea to do this before an interview.
Interviews can be stressful occasions. The best you can do though is to be as prepared as possible, be confident and answer questions as well as you can.
Unfortunately for this particular individual though, no matter how well he performed in the interview he was never going to get the job.
Matt Buckland was on the tube in London heading to the office. Anyone that has been on the tube in rush hour will know that it gets very crowded but generally people can get in and out of the train without too much drama.
Matt got to his station and was waiting for the doors to open to get off the train when a gentleman behind him started pushing and trying to get past him.
Matt politely told the other individual that he was getting off at that station but the other guy just ignored him, pushed him out of the way and then turned to him and rather aggressively told him to, how can I say it, but perform an act on himself which as far as my understanding of biology goes would be physically impossible.
Anyway, the grumpy individual carried on his way and Matt headed into the office where he was due to interview some people for a job.
In a fantastic coincidence, one of the people that Matt was interviewing that day was the grumpy guy who had told him to “go forth and multiply with himself” on the tube.
Brilliant! A rude person pushes past you and swears at you but you then meet them again a short while later to decide whether or not they should be offered a job at the company you work for.
Needless to say the individual didn’t get the job and as a learning point from this it’s best not to be rude to too many people on the way to an interview.
