A guy goes to the Post Office to apply for a job. The interviewer asks him, “Are you allergic to anything?
He replies, “Yes, caffeine. I can’t drink coffee.”
“Ok, Have you ever been in the military service?”
“Yes,” he says, “I was in Iraq for one tour.
” The interviewer says, “That will give you 5 extra points towards employment..”
Then he asks, “Are you disabled in any way?”
The guy says, “Yes. A bomb exploded near me and I lost my one leg.”
The interviewer grimaces and then says, “Okay. You’ve 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 8:00 am to 4:00 PM, why don’t you want me here until 10:00 am?”
“This is a government job”, the interviewer says.
“The first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and wasting time. No point in you coming in for that.”
