An office manager was given the task of hiring an
individual to fill a job opening. After sorting through a stack of resumes
he found four people who were equally qualified. He decided to
call the four in and ask them only one question. Their answer would
determine which of them would get the job.
The day came and as the four sat around the conference
room table the interviewer asked, "What is the fastest thing you know
Acknowledging the first man on his right, the man
replied, A THOUGHT. It just pops into your head. There's no warning that
it's on the way; it's just there. A thought is the fastest thing I know
"That's very good!" replied the interviewer. "And now
you sir?" he asked the second man. "Hmm....let me see. A
blink! It comes and goes and you don't know that it ever happened. A BLINK is the fastest thing I know of."
"Excellent!" said the interviewer. "The blink of an
eye...that's a very popular clichi for speed." He then
turned to the third man who was contemplating his reply.
"Well, out at my dad's ranch, you step out of the
house and on the wall there's a light switch. When you flip that
switch, way out across the pasture the light in the barn comes on in
less than an instant. Yep, TURNING ON A LIGHT is the fastest thing
I can think of."
The interviewer was very impressed with the third
answer and thought he had found his man. "It's hard to beat
the speed of light" he said.
Turning to the fourth and final man, the interviewer
posed the same question.
The last man replied, "After hearing the three
previous answers, it's obvious to me that the fastest thing known is
DIARRHEA." "WHAT!?" said the
interviewer, stunned by the response.
"Oh I can explain." said the fourth man. "You see the
other day I wasn't feeling so good and I ran for the bathroom.
But, before I could THINK, BLINK, or TURN ON THE LIGHT, I had already S*&% my pants!"
HE GOT THE JOB
