Got fired from my job selling copies of Gustave Le Bon’s seminal 1895 work on collective psychology at a street stall for positioning myself too far across the pavement.

Impressed them at my last interview by applying DC power to a solenoid, which engaged the flywheel of a combustion engine, powering it through the first two strokes of its cycle and enabling the engine to sustain itself.

They said I was a dynamic self-starter.

I’m the only one left.

I accidentally sent two copies of my resumé when applying for a job recently. It all turned out OK in the end, though, as I think I impressed them with photos of my vintage Citroën collection at the interview.

They said I had the best 2CVs they’d ever seen,

Fuuucking hell.

That left a bitter taste in the mouth.
