March 18th, 2007
it is goodA Mathematician, an Accountant and a Public Relations Officer all applied for the same job with a large company.
The interviewer called in the mathematician first and asked,
"What does two plus two equal?"
The mathematician replied, "Four."
The interviewer asked, "Four, exactly?"
The mathematician looked at the interviewer incredulously and said, "Yes, of course: four, exactly."
Then the interviewer called in the accountant and asked the same question, "What does two plus two equal?"
The accountant said, "On average, four - give or take 10 per cent; but on average, four."
Then the interviewer called in the public relations officer and again posed the same question, "What does two plus two equal?"
The public relations officer got up, locked the door, closed the shade, sat down next to the interviewer and whispered, "Well, what do you want it to equal?" |
