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’.“
