Today, my best friend and I both applied for the same job. I was applying because my family is REALLY tight on cash, and I need the money. He applied because I told him about the job and we thought it would be fun working together. He was hired on the spot. I was denied the job. FML
I agree, your life sucks 36 456
You deserved it 6 175

jamminguitarist tells us more.

Sorry, let me clarify. There was a business opening up in our area, so there were many openings up for the jobs. We wanted to both get jobs there. They did group interviews then passed the ones they liked onto the next one. We were in the same group interview and he made it past. I wouldn't be stupid enough to tell him about a single job that was available, but I was stupid enough to think we would both be hired :P but I went job hunting afterwards and one of the places is interested and it's a better overall job so it's not an FML anymore

If there is ONE open job, it's pretty stupid to think you can both have it...

They could smell your stink of desperation and thought you might end up stealing from them. Your friend seemed cool, and therefore, trustworthy. Desperation is not a good vibe to put out when looking for a job, or a date, for that matter.

The OP said 'We thought it would be fun working together.' Evidentally, neither of them are that bright.

XD i missed that =p lol yea, deffinitely a little dim

Who said anything about there being "one job open"? I'm guessing that the OP applied first, they were impressed with the friend, they were not impressed with the OP. Even if the friend hadn't applied there is no guarantee the OP would have gotten the job since they were not impressed with the OP.

YDI for deserving it...

Are you guys stupid? How could you think you'd be working together if you apply for one and the same job? Especially you are to blame for not convincing your "competitor" to not apply or lay down after he got the job. So, YDI.

That's why I don't tell my friends about my ideas until after I've done them or I am in the process of doing them. You may never know who might want a piece of your success.

O.o Lol. Same thing happened to my sister's boyfriend. Tough luck man. Sorry.

FYL. I'm sorry. :(

Just be happy for your friend. If you were denied the job it's not likely that you'd get it anyway - unless no one else applied.
