A 25-year-old guy named Gooko went on a weekend away with his friends and woke up to realize they had all decided to shave off one of their own eyebrows as a fun.
At first, he laughed seeing his new appearance but reality hit him hard when he realized he had a job interview in the same week.
One of his friends suggested him to draw his lost brow back on using a black marker pen. Gooko hoped the boss wouldn’t notice it and he arrived at the interview with full confidence but sadly he didn’t get the job. He simply couldn’t understand why he was turned down for the role.
Looking back at the incident which happened in 2013, Gooko said: “I had been drinking with my friends from Friday through to Sunday, and by Sunday night we had ran out of stupid things to do so we each shaved off one eyebrow.
“When I sobered up it was still funny and then it didn’t stop being funny until I realized that I had to attend that interview during the week. To be honest at the time I was really young and really dumb and I genuinely didn’t understand why I didn’t get the job, so yeah I was confused.”
“I ended up removing the sharpie eyebrow and just rocked the singular brow – that was less embarrassing somehow. But my eyebrows are pretty prominent and it took ages to grow back. I googled ways to stimulate hair growth and ended up brushing the hair follicles with a toothbrush every night.”
On Twitter, Gooko posted pictures of his shaved eyebrow and a snap of it redrawn on his face with a marker, along with the caption: “The very first interview I went on was in Burger King after a long weekend of taking Eccies which ended in me shaving aff my eyebrow, a bird in my class tried to fill it in with a sharpie so the interviewer wouldn’t notice but a didn’t get it [sic].”
His tweet garnered almost 8,000 likes and one commented, “Feel like you only would have got it if you shaved and filled in the other one as well.”
