And then he sent another one.
Sending a dick pic is very seldom the right move, and basically never the right move in the workplace, unless you work for that app that will diagnosis STIs through photo messages. And if you were just offered a position at a new job, sending the HR manager a picture of your peen is objectively the wrong move 100% of the time. Ditto for sending a second photo through after the first, for good measure.
Unfortunately, that's just what a 23-year-old from Aurora, Illinois, did in August, according to the Chicago Tribune. Now he's got some explaining to do to the cops.
"There was a conditional offer of employment made to this particular applicant," Michael Ruth, the police chief involved with the case, told the Tribune. "He texted the HR director and sent a nude photo of himself."
When the HR manager decided not to respond, the guy, naturally, sent another. Then he opted to call, presumably to double check that the pics were going through. The phone call alerted the manager to the identity of the man behind the cock shots, and she went straight to the police.
"My understanding is they've rescinded the offer of employment," said Ruth.
According to the police report the guy was trying to send the sexts to someone else, but blasted them to the HR manager by mistake.
Although the manager decided against pressing charges, police advised the man—wisely—to avoid initiating any contact whatsoever going forward.
Though he may be out of a job, the guy has hopefully learned to be a little more careful when texting, and maybe he'll even take the opportunity to step up his dick pic game.
