A man was travelling on the London Underground Monday when he ran into a fellow passenger that was blocking his way.
Possibly being in a rush to get to his job interview he responded in the traditional London manner, with a push, shoving the guy out of his way.
The victims name was Matt Buckland, and he had one task for the afternoon. Fill the role of Python Developer.
Karma – the guy who pushed past me on the tube and then suggested I go F myself just arrived for his interview…with me…

BBC News reported on the event in London earlier this week:
“I was on my way into work on the Tube on Monday morning during rush hour. I stood to one side to let a lady get by, and ended up blocking a man momentarily.
He shoved past me, almost knocking me over, and shouted,” Buckland told BBC Trending.
Despite a bad start, the day carried on as normal for Buckland, who is the head of talent and recruiting for Forward Partners, which funds early start-up businesses
He had an interview scheduled for 5:30pm. At 5:15pm the interviewee turned up. Lo and behold, it was the man who’d been so charming earlier.
Buckland stepped away briefly to tell his Twitter followers about it and went back into the interview room. At this point the interviewee still hadn’t made the connection.
“It was totally awkward,” says Buckland. “So I approached it by asking him if he’d had a good commute that morning. We laughed it off and in a very British way I somehow ended up apologising.”
