Job interviews are a tricky affair. You should be honest, but sometimes there’s such a thing as being too honest. I sure hope my next interview is as funny as this one!
A guy goes to the US postal service to apply for a job. He’s feeling good about his chances, and as he walks into the interview room, he decides to be completely frank and honest.
He shakes hands with the interviewer, and they sit down facing each other. The interviewer takes out a notepad and says, “Nice to meet you. Now, let’s get right to the questions. Are you allergic to anything?”
He replies, “Yes, caffeine. I can’t drink coffee.”
“OK, that’s fine. Have you ever been in the military service?”
“Yes,” he says, “I was in Afghanistan for one tour.”
The interviewer says, “That will give you 5 extra points toward employment.” He then asks, “Are you disabled in any way?”
The guy says, “Yes. A bomb exploded near me and I lost both my testicles.”
The interviewer grimaces and then says, “Disabled in your country’s service! Well that qualifies for extra bonus points. Okay.”
The interviewer continues, “Looking at the regulations you have got enough points for me to hire you right now. Our normal hours are from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. You can start tomorrow at 10:00 AM, and plan on starting at 10:00 AM every day.”
The guy is puzzled and asks, “If the work hours are from 8:00AM to 4:00 PM, why don’t you want me here until 10:00 AM?”
“Well, this is a government job,” the interviewer says. “For the first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our balls. No point in you coming in for that.”
SHARE if you laughed!
