Job interviews are rarely fun. Not to mention the post-interview flashback where you relive every hesitation, stumble and rambled answer, until you question why you even applied for the job in the first place.

Or is that just us? 

Knowing about these common mistakes candidates make could help you out in the future, but right now we want to hear your interview horror stories.

From unrelated questions, to unusual venues, what are the weirdest interview scenarios you've found yourself in? 

Did nerves get the better of you and make you do or say things you never intended? Have you had an attack of clumsiness and knocked a drink over your prospective employer? What about forgetting your own name or that of the company you wanted to work for?

Maybe you had a brand new interview outfit that let you down spectacularly on the day. What happened? 

Tell us about your worst interview experiences and share the pain. It might help.
