I lost out on dream job because I mentioned bacon: Contractor axed from £1,000-a-week IT role for unwittingly saying he'd treat Muslim recruiter to breakfast sandwich | Mail Online When the recruiter sad she'd meet him for a working breakfast he offered to 'get the bacon sarnies in'... next thing you know her boss is on the phone to him about 'racialist' comments. Admittedly telling the boss to 'sod off' may not have been conducive to getting the job, but must have felt satisfying. Why wasn't this put to bed in person, before the end of the meeting? Or is the boss mistakenly going in feet first on her employees behalf? Another 'win' for knee jerk stupidity?
