Worst performance in a job interview

I read this in the Independent on Sunday and thought I would share it, as it is a fantastic example of a poor job interview technique.

"...the man who, receiving a mobile phone call, asked the interviewer to leave because it was a "private call"; the man who told the interviewer he had been sacked from his last post for beating up the boss; the candidate who sniffed his armpits as he walked into the interview room; and the person going for an accountancy job who told the interviewer: "I'm a people person, not a numbers person." But the winner is the American who, during a telephone job interview, flushed the toilet."

Try not to make these mistakes in the New Year...but if you do we'd be happy to hear about them.
