How I Failed A Job Test by Nobody: 11:27pm On Jul 29, 2019
So, after the night without sleeping, the day arrived with a bit of optimism. Although I wasn't perfect, I still felt I can release all I have worked on through out the night with every inch perfection. My name sounded out loudly to my ears as I was summoned upon the stage.

I was called on to present as the 3rd presenter after the first two speakers have fantastically presented. So then, I was very confident. You know that confidence?? The confidence of an angel flying me over the pit of hell. Then suddenly I was all alone. Although it wasn't like am about to stutter but my words came off badly as soon as I saw my colleague making gestures that I should speak up. At that point I was point blank. Feeling disorganized and animated. My wicked colleagues already laughing at the joke I have become. "Oga your time is going" the Head of Department said. I quickly motioned my cowardly eyes towards him and saw a wolf seated with blood stained coat and tie. I shouted Jesus!!

You know what comes next. I failed the interview.

This is funny and sad at the same time

I remember when I was to participate a debate back in secondary school. After preparing and all, I got to the podium facing the whole school and I blanked out, I just said my name, the topic and went back to my sit

cry cry

I've never felt such shame that enveloped me before, it was a terrible experience
