A man in the United Kingdom, was traveling on a train to a job interview when he cursed at a fellow passenger.

However, the cranky passenger probably regretted insulting the man as it may have cost him a job.

Matt Buckland of London, who is the head of talent and recruiting for Forward Partners, tweeted about his bizarre incident, which led to instant karma for a rude man.

Buckland said that he was riding a train that morning, and when the train stopped at the Monument station, he moved to the side so a woman can get off.

However, a fellow passenger became angry when Buckland was standing in his way. The irritated man told Buckland “go f*** yourself.”

Hours later, the same man walked in for an interview with Buckland at Forward Partners.

Buckland wrote on Twitter, that the job applicant did not recognize him at first, so he asked the man some questions relating to the train ride until the man recognized him.

“He laughed awkwardly and we got on with the interview. The train makes everyone cranky,” Buckland said.

However, Buckland said that the man did not get the job because he was not a good fit.

Buckland’s posts on Twitter, went viral and has been retweeted over 16,000 times.
