We’ve all been there: the dreaded job interview. As unnerving and stressful as they are it’s to be expected that mishaps are bound to take place. Here is a list of the 15 worst job interview calamities that will leave yours in the dust. Next time you bomb an interview, feel free to check this list out; it’ll be certain to brighten your day and make you feel a bit better!

1. You’re Related to Who?

It’s never a good idea to badmouth your old boss, no matter how much you disliked him or how intensely you feel that she should have been the subordinate, not you. This applicant spent the length of their interview bellyaching about their former boss totally unaware of their interviewer’s relation to their aforementioned boss. They even had the same last name!

2. Zzz…

Remember back to your younger days in school where they stressed the importance of a good night’s rest before a big test like the SAT? Well the same goes for job interviews. It looks like this applicant failed to heed the advice of his tenth grade English teacher when he dozed off right in the middle of his interview!
