Lighter Side: Rejected candidate stages 90 minute sit-in
They say persistence pays but one UK jobseeker took the turn of phrase a little too literally when she refused to leave an unsuccessful interview earlier this week.

The woman – who remains anonymous – staged a 90-minute sit in after bosses in Manchester, UK told her she had not been chosen for the position.

According to reports, the woman was rejected because she failed to bring her passport – a requirement which had been stated in the initial posting.

Exasperated employers warned the woman that the police would be called to which she allegedly replied; “Go on! Call the police!”
And it seems they did.

The Greater Manchester Police shared their side of the story via Twitter.
