Karma! Commuter tells man to f**k himself, then turns up a few hours later for job interview with him

This is why it pays to be nice...lol. According to HR executive Matt Buckland (pictured above), he said a man pushed past him and told him to go 'f*** himself' as they were both getting off a packed train at Monument Station in central London on Monday Feb. 16th. He said the man insulted him because he'd stood aside to let a woman off the train. Thinking he was deliberately standing in the way, the man, a job seeker, pushed him aside and told him to f**k off.
"I was on my way into work on the Tube on Monday morning during rush hour. I stood to one side to let a lady get by, and ended up blocking a man momentarily. I think he thought I was just standing in his way. He pushed and I turned, I explained I was getting off too but he pushed past and then looked back and suggested I might like to f*** myself,which might have been true but not before a few cups of coffee' he told Buzzfeed.
Well, guess what? Hours later, the same man walked in for an interview at investment firm Forward Partners where Mr Buckland is a senior executive and head of recruitment.

The job seeker , who was interviewing for the role of web developer at the firm, didn't recognize Buckland as the man he'd disrespected earlier in the day so Buckland said he started to ask him train-related questions until the penny dropped.
"I think it crept up on him slowly as my questions became more and more tube related.' 
Buckland said the man didn't get the job and not because he held the incident against him, but because he wasn't suitable for the job.
'It would be easy to hold something like this over someone in an interview, but for me interviews aren't about that. By the end of the interview we laughed it off and we're both happy. The candidate didn't get the job, though, and maybe now he'll maintain a better attitude in the morning since he just might need some help from a fellow commuter one day.' Buckland said

Short Message :
Most Christians and unbelievers believe the devil is everywhere (omnipresent) but it isn't so! He can't be as he's not a spirit like God (john 4:24). Remember he is just an angel like any other angel and he's also just a workaholic, he roams about the earth, travels from places to places looking for who devour 
Job 1:7 and 1 peter 5:8 explain who and what he does! So don't be deceived, the devil can never be everywhere at the same time! Only God can! Stay blessed. @Bishop_Dammy

Well, a hungry is said to be an angry man, poor guy without a job. You can imagine how he felt that morning, and his thoughts as he was heading to attend the interview.

Cornelius Chukwu said...

A man they said, should not be held responsible, for what he said at the time of his distress. A job seeker mind you.
