A MAN has found himself unemployed after copying a character from an aftershave advert.
34-year-old office worker Stephen Malley was being grilled about sales targets when he said he ‘can’t be the person I’m expected to be any more’ and walked out.
He said: “Enough was enough. I just got up and strode out of the room.
“In the aftershave advert the walls just kind of fall away, but in real life the door was quite hard to open because I didn’t realise you had to turn the handle.
“While I was struggling with the door my boss asked if I was going to the toilet, I couldn’t think of anything to say except ‘no, and you can all fuck off’.
“I thought they might be more shocked or impressed but they all just carried on talking about what they were doing at the weekend.
“The next day I asked for my job back but they’ve already found someone else who is apparently better. Now I’m just at home watching telly and worrying.”
49-year-old Norman Steele was inspired by a perfume advert to enter a nightclub, grab a woman and drag her onto a fire escape: “I thought she would be into it but she started shouting ‘help’, then the bouncers came and beat me up quite badly.”
