This month, we're giving away an amazing night for two in the Merrion Hotel, along with dinner and a specially chosen bottle of wine in The Cellar Bar. To find out more, and to vote for this story to win, see below!
I was going for a part time job in a clothes store while at university, and being the party-loving student that I was, I went out on the piss the night before.
Everything was going as well as could be expected until the usual question of best and worst qualities to which, for some unknown reason, I answered: “I’m a bit lazy”.
Not surprisingly, they finished up the interview at that point, so I left the store embarrassed and flustered, looked the wrong way on the one-way street and managed to get knocked down by a car.
Luckily I wasn’t badly injured – but the interviewers had to come to my aid, undoubtedly breathing a huge sigh of relieve that they dodged the bullet of hiring me.
Want Gerard to win?
We want this to be about the best story, and not just the best social media campaign for votes – so the winning entry will be decided by a combination of:
