It’s important to note that we in no way ever endorse setting fire to a place where you hope to be employed. At Fennel Restaurant in Scotland, however, two teenagers did get job offers after setting a fire there. According to the BBC, the incident occurred Sunday night and the damage was only to the restaurant’s outdoor furniture.
Owner William Bird went on the restaurant’s Facebook page, and wrote “I’m offering a reward. But that reward may not be what you think. To the two young lads who tried to set a fire at Fennel, I’m offering you a job.”
Bird continued, “Come see inside, what we do, the real lives of the men and woman who work here, whose livelihoods depend on what we do, the innocent diners, locals you put at risk. I dare you, come work for me. It’s not for the faint-hearted, takes something pretty special. Think you’re up to it, gentlemen?”
He explained to the BBC, “I want to get them in for kitchen porter duties. People are all too quick to say ‘hang ’em high’ rather than make a difference and help. We can change their direction.”
