Teen receives extremely blunt job rejection, fights back on Twitter

LONDON — Job rejections are never pleasant, but they can sometimes be useful.

Maybe you get sent some feedback about where you went wrong, or perhaps some advice on how to improve for next time.

What's less useful, however, is a blunt text message containing an emoji.

On Tuesday, Dixon went for a job interview at a restaurant called Miller and Carter. Later that afternoon, she shared a screengrab of the text message exchange she'd had with her interviewer after it was finished.

Here's a screengrab of the exchange:

Dixon's tweet was shared over 150 times, and various people responded to say they were planning to boycott the restaurant.

The restaurant responded to say the text message was sent in error.

"We can't apologise enough to Megan," a spokesperson for Miller and Carter told The Sun.

"It was never our intention to be disrespectful or upset her in any way. The texts were sent in error and were intended for our manager, not the candidate."

Mashable has reached out to Dixon.
