Woman Claims She Didn't Get A Job Because Of Her 'Inappropriate' Voicemail

A woman has revealed why she got rejected by a hiring manager for a job.

Taking to TikTok, user Zanaya Jones went viral after she shared her voicemail that left a mealy-mouthed employer unimpressed.

The videos racked up a combined 19 million views, with many people finding the whole debacle hilarious.

After hearing Zanaya’s voicemail (which wasn’t even really offensive), thousands of people flocked to the comments to say she probably “dodged a bullet” by not getting hired.

“Are you serious?” one person wrote. “He’s acting as if you're using a bunch of foul words, it’s literally your personality.

“He wants a robot to work for him, his loss.”

A second person chipped in: “This voicemail is childish but it shouldn’t have stopped you from getting a job. He’s miserable. Be glad you didn’t get hired.”

“It’s not even bad!” a third person agreed. “Working for someone that uptight would have been a nightmare!”

A fourth person fairly pointed out: “That’s your PERSONAL phone. Not everyone has a cell and a work phone.”

Others said there’s nothing inherently wrong with having a happy and upbeat personality.

“We are not born to work and die, we are meant to enjoy our lives. Companies like to think they own you,” one person righteously commented.

“Why does everything we do need to be ‘professional’ for work? Like that's our only purpose in life?” said a second person.

“’Sorry Miss Jones, we see you have an actual personality and we're looking more for corporate robots. It's a no from us,’” a third person sarcastically quoted.

Seems like Zanaya deserves to work somewhere a lot more fun…

In other work news, one woman was left mortified when she left she'd left a bottle of lube in full view of colleagues while on a work Zoom call.
