This is a true life story and part II of my job hustle adventure.
I came across this job ad looking for clowns for a day’s work paying £300 for the day.
I mean I can just close eyes for one day and make £300.
I had never dressed like a clown before or done clown work but how difficult could it be
I applied for the job, they got back to me on the rendezvous point and asked me to bring my own makeup and costume. I travelled all the way to another town to buy clown costumes and makeup. The consultant helped me choose my props, makeup and gave me outfit ideas.
Before the day, I had sent an email requesting their contact number and asked more questions about the day and I got no response so I became suspicious.
I decided I wouldn’t put on the clown costume till I got to the venue and saw others actually on there’s like a smart girl that I am.
I jumped on a bus to the rendezvous point. There was no African time in this situation; I was on time.
As we were approaching the place, I looked around to see if there was anyone on a clown costume and I was well disappointed. I tried not to panic.
I got down from the bus and went into the place. I sat in one corner watching intently possibly looking creepy.
All I could see were normal people going about their business. After a few minutes, I walked around hoping to see something and no one turned up, no one was on a clown costume and there was no number to call.
I had just been Punked! I was utterly disappointed. Travel money wasted! £300 I didn’t receive! Money I spent buying all the costumes wasted!
After an hour, I just carried myself back home thanking God that I didn’t change into the costume.
But wait! What if I had changed to the clown costume? All eyes on me right? Would have probably looked like a bad replica of Joker in The Dark Knight. People would have probably thought something was off in my head.
Lesson from this is if you do apply for a job, know that there are lots of time wasters. So beware!
