This Teen Received The Most Brutal Job Rejection Text EVER

No one likes being turned down after an interview for a job. But when Megan Dixon – an 18-year-old from Leicester, UK – looked down at her phone to read the text she’d received from her interviewer, she couldn’t believe what she was reading.

After attending an interview at Miller and Carter Steakhouse on Tuesday, a ridiculously harsh rejection text was sent to Megan’s phone just a moment or two after she left.

Shantel Wesson, the branch’s assistant manager, only waited one minute before hitting send on the cruel message.

Brutal! Even if poking fun at Dixon’s language was appropriate, was that a typo or did Wesson really use the word “we’re” instead of “were”? Not to mention the emoji, the use of ‘x’…

Additionally, Dixon described interviewer’s behaviour “so unprofessional” after adding that she thought Wesson was unprepared – the interviewer’s phone would just not stop ringing during their time together.

The tweet has since gone viral. This seems to be rubbing everyone else the wrong way, too.

Despite all of this, management claim that Dixon was not the intended recipient of the texts, and they were not supposed to be unwelcome feedback as they appear here.

“We can’t apologise enough to Megan,” Said a spokesperson for Miller and Carter, “It was never our intention to be disrespectful or upset her in any way. The texts were send in error and were intended for our manager, not the candidate.”

Whether Dixon decides to accept the apology or not is up to her, but we won’t be surprised if “it’s a no x”.

11 Confounding Questions That Even Scientists Can’t Answer

It seems like nowadays science boffins have it all figured out – but really, there’s still more than a few things that still leave them scratching their heads.

Even with all the studying and experiments, we’re about to take a look at eleven mysteries that still have no real logical explanation to this day.

1. What animals did some creatures evolve from?

There are quite a few species whose ancestors are completely unknown to us. For example, whilst we know that amphibians evolved from fish, we have no idea when exactly that happened. After all, the first land animals to crawl from the primordial ooze already had limbs and heads that were very well developed.

What’s more, if the dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago, where did the species of mammals that followed come from? Well, scientists sure don’t know!

2. How does a cat purr?

One of the most familiar methods of communication a cat uses is a purr, but no one’s figured out how they do it. Scientists do tell us that a kitty will make the vibrations using their vocal chords, which causes the sound. The frequency of a purr reduces pain and speeds up healing, so that’s why cats will purr when they’re hurt, too.

Special bonus fact: when a cat purrs, you can’t hear their heartbeat! Weird.

3. What was in that gelatinous rain, anyway?

In August of 1994, the people of Oakville, Washington, witnessed a bizarre and unexplained phenomenon. Weird, jelly-like stuff began to fall from the sky. A day later, an abundance of people experienced an illness with flu-like symptoms. What?

When analysed by scientists, the jelly “stuff” was found to contain two different kinds of bacteria. One of those is a bacteria found in the human digestive system. However, no connection was found between this discovery and the outbreak.

4. Do cows have some kind of magnetic head-compass?

Scientists were able to study thousands of bovines whilst they were grazing using Google Earth. An unexpected pattern was revealed: 70% of the cows studied turned their heads either north or south whilst eating or drinking. It made no difference where and when the cows were observed – they all still did the same thing.

Student Who Burned £20 In Front Of Homeless Man Facing Expulsion Petition

Following a Cambridge University student setting fire to a £20 note in front of a homeless man, a petition has been launched to have him expelled.

A SnapChat video has circulated, showing student Ronald Coyne struggling to set the note on fire while wearing a white bow tie and tails. The camera then panned across to the homeless man he was taunting.

Unknown

Coyne, the communications officer of the University’s Conservative Association has been fired from his position following the outrage caused by his actions.

Additionally, a petition entitled “Remove Ronald Coyne from Cambridge University” has been launched, demanding his expulsion and that he be made to work at a homeless shelter.

Ronald’s mom, Sandra McLaughlin (46) has spoken about the incident, revealing that her son has previously volunteered at a homeless shelter for two years and “felt really bad about” setting the money on fire in front of the homeless man.

“I don’t recognise that behaviour in my son. I don’t really know why he’s done something so thoughtless and cruel. It’s completely out of character. He did two years of volunteering at a shelter homeless shop in Edinburgh. It’s very surprising. We’re just a normal family. We’re not toffs, he’s not a toff. He’s been a hard-working student who is very, very lucky and aware of the privilege he has to study at Cambridge.”

SnapChat

She continued, saying

“It’s been stressful. I’m starting to panic because I can’t get a hold of him. He spoke to us after the event and said he’d done something very stupid and felt really bad about it. He went out a few nights later around Cambridge with one of his friends to do the homeless run and give out tea, coffee and sandwiches to them. He’s obviously known what he’s done himself. It’s baffling. He wasn’t a wild teenager, he was in chess club at school.”

TEST: Only Pilots Can Pass This Visual Test, But Can You?

Our vision is an incredible thing. While most of us complain about our eyesight, myself being one, we quite often take for granted the quality of our vision, and the amazing things it does.  Without it, we would be in complete and utter darkness, with no clue as to where we are.

Not only that, but they help us steer clear of danger, and find our way out of a tricky situation. Think about it, how many times have you been saved by the fact that you’ve been able to see the danger? It’s painfully obvious, but it is something we do take for granted on a regular basis.

Good quality vision is key for many jobs and position. If you want to have a certain job, sometimes you need to have an expectional vision which most people don’t have. So, for example, if you wanted to be a pilot or a train driver, you would be required to take eye tests on a regular basis. Not only that, but you would also need to take a visual test, to make sure you can see and spot certain things while at work. For example, people who are color blind wouldn’t be able to become pilots because they need to be able to see a vast range of colors while at work. As strange as it sounds, once you think about all the lights and buttons, it makes sense.

Is your eyesight in tip top condition?

Only pilots can pass this visual test, if you can pass it, then it means you may have what it takes to be a pilot. Why not give it a try and let us know your result in the comment section below.

Also, why not share this test with your friends and family to see if they have what it takes!

 

TEST: Do You See Everyday Colours Accurately?

Less than 3% of people are able to pass this test successfully! Most people who have already completed the test have been equated to having the colour perception that is parallel to that of an Art Teacher.

I just completed the test myself, and I discovered I’m in the 1% of people who are at “Genius Painter Level”, which apparently means You are in the 1% of the population who can see all of the colours across the spectrum. You have an eye for beauty and see colours in all their intensity and richness much like Picasso and Matisse. You have a unique sense of perception that is different from other people.

If you’re all about that Aesthetic and dig colour schemes, you should give this test a go and see if you’re getting the most out of your well-selected Pinterest boards!

About to go and look at paint palettes for your Winter painting revamp? Maybe taking this test will be a good way of seeing just how colour-savvy your eyesight is before you put the paint on the walls!

Don’t forget to share your results with us and be sure to tag your friends who use words like “mauve” instead of “purple” and see if they can put their money where their mouth is!

 

TEST: Solving This Simple Math Equation May Mean You’re A Genius

When we were growing up, math class was one of the worst classes on our class timetable. We had to learn how to multiply, adding, subtracting. Stuff that would actually help us in real life. But then we had to learn useless stuff, which to this day I’ve never had to do. Sometimes it really felt like your maths teacher hated children, and that’s probably the reason why they became a maths teacher, so they could torture us with algebra.

We were always asked silly questions about Dave and his apples. ‘If Dave has two apples but he buys four more and gives five away, then how many does he have left?’ It’s enough to make you go crazy.

At common problem with maths is that it emphasises the importance of rules and reason. This made math absolutely boring for most kids.

But every so often we come across puzzles in our life, these require us to use what we remember in school, especially from our old maths lessons. We have a test for you that, even though it has rules, it doesn’t work in the same way a regular math problem does. It’s can be mind-boggling to crack, or the easiest thing in the world to solve. But that all depends on your mindset. Why not give it a try?

If you can solve this in under 10 seconds then you may be a lot smarter than you think.

maths

Straight away you can tell that something is strange about these questions. Normally 8+2=10, it doesn’t equal 16106… How on earth did they manage to get that Their calculator must be off.

But what if the numbers mean something else? To solve this math problem you have to think outside the box.

Instead of panicking about the big answer, simply don’t think about it as one big number but lots of little ones. If that doesn’t help then click on the next page to find how to solve this maths question.

TEST: Can You Guess The Disney Film Based On The Emojis?

Disney films are simply magical, admit it. Who doesn’t love a good Disney or Pixar film? For many young adults, they were the films that defined our childhood and helped to mould us into the adults we are to this day. Without Disney, I doubt we’d be the people we are now.

Not only did it help us become who we are, but the Disney and Pixar films also helped view how we saw the world. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without them during my childhood, and I know a lot of people who would agree with me on that.

But how well do you know your Disney and Pixar films? Would you say you’re a casual watcher or an occasional fan who watched a few films on Netflix?

Are you able to name the Disney and Pixar film from these emojis? Only a true Disney fan will get all of these right. Do you have what it takes to be a true Disney fan?

TEST: The Most Beautiful Test In The World Will Determine What Colour Your Energy Is

Sometimes it hard to think of ourselves as just flesh and blood. Sometimes certain things leave us thinking if there is more to us. Many people believe in the idea of a soul, or a spirit. But some people call it something completely different. They refer to our souls as auras, or energy.

Your energy, also know aura, is a emanation which surrounds your body, and that of any other living creature. Many spiritualist regard a persons energy as a key component of a persons character, and individuality.
