Joke of the Month
A local business was looking for office help.
They put a sign in the window, stating the following: "HELP
WANTED. Must be able to type, must be good with a computer and
must be bilingual. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer."
A short time afterwards, a dog trotted up to the window, saw
the sign and went inside. He looked at the receptionist and
wagged his tail, then walked over to the sign, looked at it
Getting the idea, the receptionist got the office manager. The
office manager looked at the dog and was surprised, to say the
least. However, the dog looked determined, so he lead him into
the office. Inside, the dog jumped up on the chair and stared
at the manager.
The manager said "I can't hire you. The sign says you have to
be able to type." The dog jumped down, went to the typewriter
and proceeded to type out a perfect letter. He took out the
page and trotted over to the manager and gave it to him, then
jumped back on the chair.
The manager was stunned, but then told the dog "the sign says
you have to be good with a computer". The dog jumped down again
and went to the computer. The dog proceeded to demonstrate his
expertise with various programs and produced a sample spreadsheet
and database and presented them to the manager
By this time the manager was totally dumbfounded! He looked
at the dog and said "I realize that you are a very intelligent
dog and have some interesting abilities. However, I still can't
give you the job."
The dog jumped down and went to a copy of the sign and put his
paw on the sentences that told about being an Equal Opportunity
Employer. The manager said "Yes, but the sign also says that
you have to be bilingual."
The dog looked at the manager calmly and said, "Meow!"
