VC firm Forward Partners, was on a delayed, typically busy tube on a Monday morning, and tried to move aside to allow a passenger off the train when it pulled into Monument. The irritated passenger seemed to assume he was standing in his way, so pushed past and told him to go f*** yourself . A few hours later, the very same fellow turned up for an interview for Forward Partners, with none other than Buckland himself. While Buckland was good-natured about the experience, he did disclose that the man didn’t get the job as he wasn’t right for the role . Image: Shutterstock By Rebecca Smith
