Man Drew His Eyebrow Back On After Shaving It Off Before Job Interview
Job interviews are nerve-wracking at the best of times; you don't get a second chance at a first impression.
And they're even worse when you've had one of your eyebrows shaved off before trying to cover it up with permanent marker.
That's exactly what happened to one man when he went out with his mates a few days before his first ever job interview - and things got a little out of hand.
At first, the 25-year-old, who goes by the name Gooko, said he found it hilarious, but it was only when he realised that he had an interview with Burger King later that week that the fear really set in.
He spent the next few days trying to stimulate hair growth by brushing his eyebrow with toothpaste.
One of his mates then had the bright idea to draw an eyebrow using a black marker pen, which Gooko thought was a genius plan.
Sadly, however, the interviewer didn't agree - and Gooko didn't get the job.
Looking back at his ordeal, 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 realised 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 tooth brush 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]."
Unsurprisingly, Gooko's story left other users in absolute hysterics.
One person wrote: "This is so chaos omg."
"Feel like you only would have got it if you shaved and filled in the other one as well," a second commented.
While another added: "She did you SO dirty."
Lesson of the story: Don't do drugs, kids.
