Union Minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday had revealed that popular airline company, Jet Airways, had rejected her for the cabin crew position.
The Textile Minister went on to thank god for that rejection that led to her getting a job at McDonald’s and the “rest is history”.
“I don’t know if many people know that one of the first jobs that I wanted and I lined up for was cabin crew at Jet. I was rejected because I was told I don’t have a good personality. Thank God for your rejection. After that, I got a job at McDonald’s and the rest is history,” she said.
Speaking at an awards function organised by the Air Passengers Association of India (APAI), the textiles minister also said that she was joining the celebration as a passenger.
Twitteratis, however, miss no opportunity to hammer the former HRD minister. Here’s what they said.

. @firstpost Pls inform Smritiji personality includes brain too. Jet Airways may be right to reject her for lack of personality.

Not sure why Smriti Irani wanted to work with Jet Airways, considering her qualifications are more suited to manning a snack stall at Dadar.
