The Job Interview

John went to interview for a job with the county.

The interviewer asked, “Are you allergic to anything?”

“Yes,” John replied. “Caffeine. I can’t drink coffee.”

“I see,” remarked the interviewer. “Well then, have you ever been in the military service before?”

“Yes,” John explained. “I was in Iraq for one tour.”

The interviewer noted, “That will give you 5 extra points towards employment. By the way, were you disabled in any way?”

John said, “Yes, a bomb exploded near me, and I lost both of my testicles.”

Upon hearing this, the interviewer grimaced and said “I’m sorry to hear that, but the good news is that you have enough points for me to hire you right now. Our normal hours are 8 am to 4 pm, but tell you what: You can start tomorrow at 10 am, and just plan on starting at 10 am every day.”

John was a bit dismayed by the unusual preferential treatment and remarked, “If the hours are from 8 am to 4 pm, then I want to do my part and come to work at the regular time.”

“I didn’t mean to offend you,” explained the interviewer. “You see, this is a government job. For the first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our balls. I just didn’t see any point in you coming in for that.”
