Today I fucked up by going to the wrong interview

by Gavin1772

Unlike normal tifu manner, this was actually today. Maybe an hour ago.

I'm turning 17 this month and was trying to get my second job ever. I applied to many places, and finally got a call back.

I was told "Go to chili's at 2 pm on friday" this is where the fu begins.

I was excited for the interview, obviously, and told my parents and a couple friends about it. Finally the day is here, and I leave about 30 minutes early just in case.

I go in, and the interviewer is taking quite a while, which is the first sign to me that something is wrong.

He finally comes out, it all goes smoothly, but he says "We aren't currently in much need of new team members, but you must've been called for a reason." Second sign something's wrong.

We shake hands and I leave, and I decided to check my calls.

I look up the number to see which store it's for, as it didn't match the one I was at.

Except

It's not chili's at all

It was Tilly's.

So not only did I confuse some poor manager, I missed out on the real job opportunity.

TL;DR: went to wrong interview, possibly missed out on job

Edit: Geez, okay so I understand "Rip my inbox" now. I didn't expect this to blow up like it did. I want to say thank you everyone for your advice, and maybe clear up a couple things.

I applied to both places, and they're within a few hundred feet of each other. I heard it wrong on the phone and mixed it up.

I called Tilly's as soon as I realized my mistake and let them know what happened.

Yes, I know it was dumb.

I'll update when I figure out more.

Edit 2: To the people saying "Call and explain, they might think it's funny." They did.

Edit 3: Well, no one's really gonna see this now, but I have a second interview tomorrow. Wish me luck!
