Default Government Job Interview

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.'

'Have you ever been in the military service?'
Yes,' he says. 'I was in Iraq for two years.'
The interviewer says, 'That will give you 5 extra points toward employment.'

Then he asks, 'Are you disabled in any way?'
The guy says, 'Yes...an IED exploded near me and I lost both of my *********.'

The interviewer grimaces and then says, 'O.K. You've got enough points for me to hire you right now. Our normal hours are from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. You can start tomorrow at 10:00 - and plan on starting at10:00 A.M. every day.'

The guy is puzzled and says, 'If the work hours are from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M., why don't you want me to here until 10:00 A.M.?'

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.

Everyone always wondered why I got up 2 hours prior to work call. Even though it only takes me 10 minutes to get to work.

Good one Kevin!

That one got a chuckle from me, but a long rolling of the eyes by Mrs V. I guess women just don't understand the finer things in life.

This reminds me of when I was at work and two people would stand and watch me work. I'd look at them and ask them if they'd just got a job with the city.
