leo1There is an old saying, “the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” but can it also be applied to other areas of life? What about when applying for a job? One Scottish teenager absent-mindedly decided to test out this theory when applying for a job recently.

Heather McNab from Bridge of Allan, had been looking for jobs and for one position as a letting and sales negotiator, she accidentally sent a recipe for Jamie Oliver’s beef chili instead of her CV. The 18-year-old was completely embarrassed when the prospective employer pointed out her mistake via email. The teen decided to tweet her blunder anyway, which has now been retweeted over 6,000 times.

Followers were surprisingly supportive of her innocent mistake, which has made the teen feel more at ease about her gaffe. In a recent Buzzfeed interview, Heather stated that people were telling her how this made their day and that they have never laughed so much in their life, which made her feel comforted. She also said, ‘There’s a lot of people saying things like “you should have got the job if you promised to make the chili” and if only they were right, because I’m starting to believe they may not see me as a viable candidate now.’
