TGI Friday in the UK has apologised after an interviewer asked a series of questions described as 'disgusting, sick and pathetic' by the job seeker, it has been reported.

The Daily Mail report on the 18-year-old applicant who walked out of the interview for a role in the Derby branch of the popular chain after being asked a series of bizarre questions.

The teenager, who requested that the paper did not use his name said: 'The first question I was asked was whether I would rather watch my parents have sex for a year or join in just for the start. I was absolutely gob-smacked.'

He says he was then asked if he would rather 's*** a brick or cry glass'. 

This was followed by this oddball question: 'Would you rather eat chocolate flavoured s*** or s*** flavoured chocolate.'

At this point the teenager walked out of the interview, telling the Mail he thought the questions were 'disgusting, sick and pathetic'.

The young man complained to the chain and they issued a statement to the paper about the interview.

'Fridays offers an industry-leading recruitment process, and this incident fell severely below our high standards,' they said in the release.

'The questions posed during the interview with the candidate are absolutely not part of TGI Fridays interview process and we were very disappointed to learn of this incident. Immediate action was taken, with the person involved suspended.

'We have apologised to the candidate for the experience and offered them the opportunity to re-interview with us, which we hope they will take up.'
