A lady called Mary is trending on social messaging platform Twitter for rudely replying a message sent her on Whatsapp concerning a job she had applied for.
Mary was so quick to question how the person got her contact and described the act as ‘nonsense’ only for her to later realize she was been reached out by the manager of the company she has applied for employment.
Per the conversation shared on social media, Mary first questioned Emmanuel (the manager) when he sent her a simple ‘hi.’ She asked where the man got her number from.
Emmanuel then replied by saying: “Calm down and hear me out.”
Mary who was out of courtesy replied sharply by saying: “What nonsense, don’t tell me to calm down. Who is this.”
Thereafter, she realized she was been reached out by the company she has applied to for employment after Emmanuel introduced himself properly but the chance has already been ruined.
Mary was told that she has lost the job opportunity because of her bad manners. She pleaded and begged for her indiscretion but the chance was far blown away.
This has been received with mixed reactions. While some blame the lady for been rude and exercising poor social media etiquette, others are accusing the manager (Emmanuel) for reaching out to Mary without first introducing himself.
Below are some of the divergent views:
Godspeed, Mary. Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors. pic.twitter.com/6Yn0Ce0jqo

Emmanuel : Hello, Good evening Mary.
The next thing was "How did you get my number" "Hu is this" ?
First impression matters a lot… Mary was totally wrong on this. Learn to be civil in your replies "strangers" or not. https://t.co/sNrSGnnwo4

Apparently they’re people justifying this act and saying “Mary” was probably not in a good frame of mind.
But do we all understand that Mr. Samson was probably not in a good frame of mind but sounded polite?

First of all, this 100% didn’t happen. But the message there speaks on the act of being Humble cuz you can’t tell who your helper is.
And you people don’t have to use girls to stir this controversy all the time, guys do this too.
