This Woman Was Asked to Draw Her Favorite Things During A JOb INterview And She Went With The Classic double barreled Shotgun
Metro- A woman who applied for a job at Poundland said she didn’t get it because she wasn’t very good at drawing.
As part of the interview process, Mercedes Cray, 23, was asked to draw four things important to her.
She drew a shotgun, her family, a car, and a television as part of the application for the new store in Gillingham, Kent.
But she didn’t get the job.
She believes that she didn’t pass the test because she’s not very good at art rather than as a result of her drawing a shotgun.
‘I can’t see why I would need drawing skills to work behind a till and they told us at the beginning it didn’t matter if we couldn’t draw.
‘But then they told me I didn’t get the job because I failed that test.’
Let's start with a friendly reminder. This woman's name is Mercedes Cray. Just let that sit and marinate for a minute. I'm not going to blame this random act of stupidity on her parents or her family lineage, but just do what you will with that information, because I felt like it was suspicious enough to bear repeating.
I'm not going to stand here and act like a modern day Picasso. If someone asked me to take a seat and start drawing at a job interview for a retail store I would probably get right on up and walk out. Not only because there are plenty of retail stores that don't require illustration, but because I would be flat out embarrassed to put pencil to paper with a judgmental audience. So yes, this woman does have a point. Whatever stoner came up with this hiring procedure either doesn't respect their job or has a fantastic sense of humor.
With that said, this woman doesn't have the right to complain when she gave the single worst drawing interview of all time. Seriously, I could give a more suitable drawing interview blindfolded. A couple with short legs and extensive torsos? A Nissan Cube? A fat back television from 1960? A motherfucking shotgun? Those are the four things that are most important to her? I wouldn't trust that person to live within a 15 mile radius, never mind interacting with coworkers in a place of business. The only thing I would consider paying her to do is staying the fuck away from me. This lady is ripe for the penitentiary. She didn't not get the job because she couldn't draw, she didn't get the job because her drawing basically outlined the life of the world's most disturbed person. I'm pretty sure she drew the only thing on the 'Do Not Hire' list. She decided to let her potential future employer know she's a big gun person, and that's still not the craziest part about her.
The craziest part is that she didn't realize she bombed the interview. She thought she was so persecuted for her inability to draw that she sought out the media to publicize her 1st grade doodles. She was so confident that she would be viewed as the victim that she decided to let the world know that she's a 23 year old with elementary shorthand and the hobbies of a broke redneck with a bad eye for cars. Other than her name being Mercedes Cray, I truly don't have a logical explanation for a thought process that incoherent.
