People confess the most embarrassing things that happened during job interviews

When applying for a new job, nothing's more nerve-wracking than the interview process. Even the most confident professionals find themselves choking at the pressure of presenting themselves to a room of potential employers. While some lucky folks display effortlessly charming dispositions, others find themselves forgetting their own names, faking accents and even crying in the hot seat. Several people took to Whisper, the popular app that provides an anonymous platform for people to share their most honest thoughts, to share the funniest and most embarrassing things that happened to them during job interviews.

Nerves have a way of pulling you down under:
One time at an interview  I was really nervous, so I started to speak with an Australian accent. The rest of the interview was about my life down under. I've never been to Australia.

Don't lie, just maybe tell a different truth:
During a job interview they asked what my hobbies were. I answered with binge watching on Netflix. No shame.

This person should strike 'ability to focus' from the resume:
I had an interview today. I was too distracted by the hotness of the guy interviewing me that I completely blacked out. I have no idea what I said.

Sometimes TMI can work in one's favor:
During my interview I answered "What is your worst quality?" with "flatulence". Long story short: I got the job. And my own office.

We all have identity crises from time to time:
During my job interview the guy asked me to tell him about myself and I literally forgot who I was.

It's all about context:
The other day someone told me that crying randomly was endearing. I found this not to be the case when I cried during a job interview.

Promptness is an important quality:
I once showed up for a interview a week early. Oops.

Who came up with the concept of glass doors anyway? They're clearly dangerous:
What happened during my interview today? Well. I ran into a really clean glass door. And my nose bled, so that's something..

Michael Scott would hire this person in a heartbeat:
One time I was in an interview and I said "that's what she said". The worst was that I couldn't stop laughing at my joke so I got up and left.

Everything happens for a reason:
Today I went to the wrong job interview I got hired anyway

Who wouldn't hire this guy?
During an Interview I was asked to define the word "Integrity." My response was one word... Batman. 2 days later I got the job.
