Irish Job Interview
While being interviewed for a job, the personnel manager said to the Maguire brothers:
‘Mick and Pat, we’re going to give you a written examination. There’ll be 10 questions. Whoever gets most right, we’ll hire.’
Papers were produced and the boys set to work answering the general knowledge questions. When the time was up the personnel manager collected and marked the papers.
‘Well,’ he said, ‘you both got 9 out of 10, but I’m giving Mick the job.’
‘Why’s that?’ asked Pat.
‘Well Pat,’ said the manager, ‘it was a funny thing - you both got the same question wrong.
Mick’s answer was: ‘I don’t know this’ but yours was:
‘Neither do I!’
Apologies to all our wonderful Irish friends.
