Girl Gets Rejected From Job For Being 'Basic'

Megan Dixon just wanted to get a job.

The 18-year-old was interviewing for a waitress position at Miller and Carter, a steakhouse in Leicester in the United Kingdom, when she got the worst job rejection of all time.

She scheduled the waitressing interview with the assistant manager, who confirmed it the morning of the interview.


Dixon went to the interview. Maybe she thought it went well? She was told she would hear back about the job in a few days.

But as she was on her way out, she got another text from the assistant manager, who wrote,

Concerned, Dixon wrote back,

The interviewer replied,

The interviewer ended that text with the classic crying-laughter emoji.

Dixon posted a screenshot of the text conversation on Twitter. She wrote,

Dixon told the Sun,

Miller and Carter, the steakhouse, told Metro the texts were a mistake and they "can't apologize enough." The assistant manager thought she was texting the restaurant manager, not Dixon.


A spokesperson for the steakhouse said,

Sure sounds like someone else will be going on job interviews soon enough.
