Murphy applied for a position at the Guinness Brewery in Dublin .

A Polish man applied for the same job. Both applicants claimed similar qualifications, so they were asked to take a test by the manager.

When the results were in, both men had scored 19 out of 20.

Manager to Murphy: “Thank you for coming to the interview, but we’ve decided to give the job to the Pole.”

Murphy: “And whoi would ye be doing dat? We both got nointeen questions roight.

Dis being Oireland and me being Oirish – surely Oi should be gettin’ de job.”

Manager: “We have made our decision not on the correct answers, but on how you answered the question you both got wrong.”

Murphy: “And just how could one incorrect answer be better than another?”

Manager: “Simple. On question number 7 the Polish chap wrote, ‘I don’t know.’

You wrote,  ‘Neither do I’.“
